The film FROM BUSINESS TO BEING tells the story of three executives – a former investment banker at Lehman Brothers, a project manager in the automobile industry and a regional manager at an international pharmacy chain – who embark on a quest to find ways out of the "rat race". Their motivation: the desire for meaning and authenticity in their work.
Through their sensitive and yet forthright approach Hanna Henigin and Julian Wildgruber provide deep insight into the emotional sphere of the otherwise closed world of business leaders and explore the question: To what extent are the crises of today‘s workplaces crises of consciousness? Can meditation and awareness training help to free people from stress provoking patterns of thinking and behaving, and get back to themselves?
In their search for answers, the filmmakers travel the world to meet with the experts in economics, science, spirituality and meditation who are building bridges between "business" and "being," focusing on the well-being of both management and workers.
FROM BUSINESS TO BEING is a film that touches people, inspires discussion and above all engages in an honest look on finding balance between work and life.
