LII CICA International Scientific Conference

Consciousness, the Corporate World and Conflict:

Towards a Deeper Understanding and Finding Solutions

 7-8th April 2020

Albany (New Zealand)

Organized by CICA International Foundation

in collaboration with:
Centre for Conscious Awareness Global
World Academy of Art and Science
Massey University, Albany, New Zealand

The corporate world is a sink of infinite possibilities where the challenge lies in making the right choices based on the right values and intentions.

CICA International and its collaborators will address the topic of Consciousness and the Corporate World and attempt to understand the type of spiritual conflicts people have when joining the corporate world, unmask ethical issues and dilemmas involved in corporate undertakings, and suggest ways spirituality might help the corporate world find a new way forward. This encompasses understanding how different cultures and traditions make decisions and current thinking in various fields in how the transformation of consciousness is being realized in individuals and communities across the globe.

Hopefully, through these explorations, we can most effectively reconcile the apparent conflict between the pursuit of profit and human and planetary wellbeing. All these issues will be the subject matter of the next CICA round table conference. 

The present LII CICA offers a practical and theoretical focus on the topic under discussion. And, as we have always had in our fifty-odd previous meetings, any topic related to conflict and aggression is also welcome.

President: Dr. J. Martin Ramirez (Nebrija University, Madrid, Spain)

Local organizers: Jeanette Rapson, Sanjay Kumarasingham & Dr. Mogi Nayagar
