Together, we transform business by awakening the heart

Beyond right and wrong there is a field, I will meet you there Rumi

In the third space, we provide a contemplative and intimate environment, a sacred sanctuary, for conscious business professionals, leaders, entrepreneurs, and change agents, just like you.
In the third space, we notice and intuit that there is a deeper, unseen pattern that underpins all that we do. It is a profoundly catalytic experience.
A deeper meaning of the third space, is just as much about making space…in our busy chaotic workdays. Gifting ourselves with an opening to pause, take a deep breath and reflect on why we are doing what we are doing, at work.
In the third space, we have an opportunity to orient ourselves towards the right business questions… those we need to be asking ourselves in these transitional times. It is the freedom to enter into the subtler aspects of our work. Into the inner story of business.
In the third space, we learn to witness our own transformation. From the inside out.

We all know that things need to fundamentally shift in business.

How can business become a force for good, on this planet?

And where do we start?

GATHERINGS | Conscious Business Conversations


Thursday, April 9, 2020

12:00 pm to 1:30 pm Pacific Time

Zoom Call

At this point you might be asking yourself what is a Conscious Business Conversation?
How is it different from other kinds of conversations or the way we communicate in business, every day? 
A Conscious Business Conversation is more than just an exchange of words, ideas, or opinions. We gather and enter a collective quiet space. We become deeply present to one another.   As we listen, we then hear what lies behind what is wanting to be spoken. What arises is often bigger than us.
It is an experience, an exploration, an opportunity. In the third space, we encounter wholeness in ourselves and find group coherence.
That’s how we started our journey in conscious business and we have a sense that this is why you’re here, too.

About Us

Hi, Kim Crawford and Anne Keay here.
Welcome to the third space!
We would like to introduce ourselves by sharing the “essence” of who we are. We know this is unusual, especially in the business world, and yet, it best expresses who we are, what we do and why we’ve come together. 
The core principle that guides us every day is really very simple: we believe that we can transform business by awakening the heart. The unlikely marriage between love and business is our source of inspiration. We have found that using deep heart intelligence as our compass has taken us to fascinating places. 
Over the past 3 years, we have immersed ourselves in two fundamental questions: 
Why is it that working in a heart-centered way is largely dismissed in the business world?
Why is it so hard to develop lasting and conscious business communities of practice? 
And one thing has stood out, over and over again.
There are very few conscious business models out there. From this, it dawned on us that we are the change. We had no one else to rely on.
So, we began to observe ourselves as the subjects of our own experiment. We tracked how our inner knowing was in-forming our outer actions.
Conscious Business Conversations sprouted and became our lifeline. We discovered generosity, support and an inner heart-mind space, that we now call the third space, with colleagues and change agents on a similar journey. It dawned on us that the magic of our own transformation was occurring because of our interaction with one another, in conscious community. The exponential power of a conscious group has been a new-found source energy for us. Inner group development is our current growing edge and is at the epicenter of our Love in Business System. 
As certified conscious business change agents (CBCA), this is what we cultivate: a rich, inner and interactive business experience, in community and from the heart. This is how we are the change, together, from the inside out. So, if you find yourself resonating to love in business, and want to grow your very own conscious business system, we invite you to join us, in the third space
Show up – just as you are. And most of all, trust that you are in the right place, with the right people at the right time. After all, the third space is where we began our own journey.
There are 3 very special people who have contributed and participated from the very beginning, in the third space and without whom we could not have achieved our collective dream. Chris Tatzreiter, Amor Luz and Gail Pettinger, we thank you from our deep heart as we continue this journey, together.
