Spiritual masters through the ages have devised methods different than those of science for investigating the great mystery of nature—immersing themselves in it, and making use of silence, stillness, and solitude. The two great quests of humanity have been science and spirituality, but antagonism has developed. Since the whole of reality is built of both matter and consciousness, why should this be? This title brings together theories, methodologies, new ideas, experiences, and applications emphasizing both spirituality and skill for leadership and sustainable management, sensitizing leaders and management practitioners toward the spirituality-skill paradigm, skill-based leadership, and the role of spiritual values for environmental sustainability. Topics on the relationship between spirituality and science include spiritual education, management practices, and traditional wisdom. For researchers, academicians, administrators, managers, professionals, policymakers, and students.
