Mystic realism – Shoshin and Business


Shoshin is a Zen Buddhist concept which broadly translates to having a “beginner’s mind”.

This week I was inspired by a conversation with Chip Conley and excited about the future of his initiative around Modern Elders, as also captured here.

In the second article, it quotes from a talk Chip gave:

“LEARNING NEVER ENDS Education is not filling a pail, it is stoking a fire. This is where he talked about being catalytically curious, and taking off the costume of being an expert to start with that beginner’s mind and ask a lot of “why” and “what if” questions”

Now combine that sense of Shoshin with what lies at the centre of Jack Frost (please watch the lovely clip in this post, I don’t want to spoil the “reveal” of what does lie at his centre !
