Spirituality and the Workplace and Corporations

While reading an issue Yes magazine about standing up to corporate power, I made quite the connection that I wanted to share.

I think that the rise in popularity of spirituality and the workplace as a movement (800 books published in the last decade. That is not a typo. 800) has to do with the absolute omnipresence of The Corporation in our lives. And lest you think to yourself, Hey, I work in a nonprofit or Hey, I work in a university, both types of institutions are being run more and more like corporations.

Perhaps this was obvious to everyone else?

More on this later.
