At its core, this vision was about a shifting paradigm where business attunes to the interconnection among all stakeholders, including stockholders, employees, and the community, as well as with the sacred inherent in all life.

The organization also sponsors the annual Global Oneness Day Celebration Event, along with various other programs that advance its mission in the world.
