Spirit in Leadership Explores Peace from Eastern and Western Perspectives

June 9, 2003

WALTHAM, Mass. - Bentley College welcomes Dr. Peter Senge and Yogini Dadi Gulzar for an evening entitled "Spirit in Leadership: Exploring Peace from An Eastern and Western Perspective," on Monday, June 16th, at 7:00 p.m. in Wilder Pavilion, Adamian Academic Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Senge is a senior lecturer at MIT and founding chairperson of the Society for Organizational Learning. Dadi Gulzar is co-administrative head of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. As world events are calling people to bring forth new leadership qualities in all aspects of their lives, the call to act with wisdom - the wisdom of deep listening, the wisdom of silence, and the wisdom to be the changes we want to see in the world. The guests will be exploring why and how it is important to integrate new and ancient wisdom traditions into daily lives, as well as in our families, our institutions of today, and within our world.

Dr. Senge's work articulates a cornerstone position of human values in the workplace, namely that vision, purpose, personal reflection, and "systems thinking" are essential if organizations are to realize their potentials. Author of "The Fifth Discipline" and other books about organizational learning, he has worked with leaders in business, education, health care and government on issues of decentralizing leadership. His work today concentrates on sustainability and the future of education.

Dadi Gulzar is a native of Delhi, India and began her study and daily practice of Raja Yoga meditation with the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University in 1937, when she was just eight years old. In 1945, she left the headquarters of the Spiritual University to open one of the first meditation centers outside Mount Abu. Dadi Gulzar has a profound belief in the human potential for the creation of a better world.

The evening will include time for the audience to interact with our guests and we will also have periods of silent reflection. The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Please RSVP to or call 617-926-1230. For directions to Bentley College, call 781-891-2100 or online at:
