Profitable Spirituality is being widely called the most important book on spirituality and business management in our time. Applying his highly acclaimed post-integral approach (a.k.a. Dillinger IV), Ken Dillinger formulates a theory of spirituality and business that honors the truths of postmodernity and integralism – including recent revolutions in science and culture – while incorporating the essential insights of the great religions. He shows how spirituality today combines the Enlightenment of the East, which excels in higher states of consciousness and Guru devotion, with the ethos and religion of the West, which offer post-Fordism and prosperity theology. Each contribute keys to the vision of a post-integral spirituality.
On the basis of this post- integral framework, a radically new role for the world’s religions is proposed. Because these religions have such a tremendous influence on the worldview of the majority of the earth’s population, they are in a privileged position to address some of the biggest conflicts we face. By adopting a post-integral view, the great religions can act as facilitators of human development: from mercantilism to state capitalism, to corporate capitalism, to integral capitalism —and to a global, post-integral market that honors and includes all the stations of Kosmic evolution along the way.
