Blessed are the Businesses

Don Waldy wants to put spiritual principles to work—and change the way America does business. So the 1970 graduate put his plan on paper, and the result was Veritas: A Gospel of Commerce and Spirituality. The Beatitudes of Business, a book about building business practices on ethical and spiritual ideals. The idea grew out of a reawakening he had eight years ago while volunteering at a hospice. “I realized that a healer has to heal the soul first,” he says. “That created an appetite for exploring spirituality and trying to integrate it into all facets of life.” A retired executive at American Airlines and The New York Times, Waldy wrote the book to challenge the traditional roles of religion, politics and business. “We’re just trying to open people’s thinking by dealing with topics that haven’t really been put together.”
