What an amazing opportunity to get to understand yourself from a larger perspective while really honing in specific strengths, passions and areas to work on. I left the workshop with a much better understanding of my business and how to evolve it in accordance to my unique self and with a plan to continue to evolve both myself and my offering to the world.

The Camp was the best business investment I have made – even before opening a business! I believe the future paradigm of business is all about the journey instead of rushing towards the destination, and the camp really represented that! All the elements of the Camp were truly integrated. The overall value exceeded all my expectations!

Business should be fun, not forceful, and this camp made me realize this on another level. Now I truly believe the concept of conscious business is something that will become the new way of doing business and I deeply recommend others to take one week out of your busy schedule and join this camp. You will not regret it.

The traditional models for business were established for a very different world…
These models were established for a world limited in possibilities and information. But the world has continued to change, and the models for business must adapt as well.
We live in a world where access to knowledge is no longer an obstacle and where the possibilities are infinite. We live in a world where the human consciousness now incorporates the experience of unsustainability. Unsustainability not only regarding the environment, but ourselves as individuals as well. Today the biggest and fastest growing trend is stress, and stress is the main cause for diseases.
In the creation of a successful business, our most important resources are individual clarity and a network of supportive people. That is, a clear understanding of what we would like to offer to the world based on our wisdom, and not on old myths, and a concrete, tangible path to make this happen, as well as the knowledge and expertise of conscious people to help us put our plans in motion and maintain our integrity.
The goal of conscious business is to leverage the highest level of consciousness to create business that increases the value for humanity, not just the amount of money, and is sustainable for each person and for the world. This is what the Art of Startup is all about.
The Art of Startup Camp is a retreat that offers all the tools you need to get crystal clear about your startup, as well as access to people who have been there, who have established successful conscious businesses.
If your dream isn’t mainstream, the Art of Startup will help you to make those dreams a reality.
Into The Wild Edition…
One of the most healing and energizing things we can do for ourselves is to spend time in nature. Science shows how nature brings our nervous systems into the Theta range, the optimal frequency for body and mind.
Simply by being in natural surroundings, we tap into an inner fund of energy, clarity, peace, and motivation. In this state, we can bring efficiency, brilliance, and insight to anything we set our minds to. At one of Sweden´s best yoga retreat centers, Shambala Gatherings, immersed in deep forrest and located just by a lake we found exactly what we where looking for.
Within this natural setting and energized by the elements, the Art of Startup Camp provides you the perfect environment for creating a foundation for your growing Conscious Business.
This Camp is for You if:
- You are in a startup phase and you don’t want to do it alone.
- You have a dream that isn’t mainstream that requires an innovative, conscious approach.
- You want to be inspired by others who are likeminded, with unique dreams and experience in making those dreams a reality.
- You want more clarity on direction and prioritization: What, Why, Where, When and in Which way, and how to order your steps so that the business can be established with a solidly foundation.

- You are ready to start something new, in a new way, to explore the unlimited potential of human creativity and create a conscious business that harnesses your unique resources and ideals.
Forget mainstream business courses. In the Art of Startup Camp, we approach business in a new and more conscious way. These five days together will promote inner wisdom and clarity for everyone involved. You will gain access to collective years of experience, knowledge, and resources necessary for a startup, but this is only the beginning.
Together with the facilitator, we create an empowering co-creative space where insight can come from anyone in the group. The new approach to business is joyful, meaningful, and even effortless. Together, we will explore the infinite possibilities and crystalize our unique gifts.

Any transformation in the leader will translate directly into the business itself, especially in the startup phase. We focus on offering you the transformative resources that will help the business you create to be in full alignment with your ideals and intentions.
- This process will provide you an opportunity to cultivate and support your unique offering and style of leadership. It will provide everything you need to bring your service or product forth, to enrich humanity by offering something valuable and meaningful.
- You will join our international network, a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who support one another in creating and expanding effortless, heart-based Conscious Business. This network offers inspiration and practical experience from successful owners of unconventional and innovative businesses.

Just as your business and offering is unique, each person will have unique perspectives and get unique results. We tailor our facilitation to the needs of the attendees, and each attendee brings their own experience, gifts, and insight into the camp.

We are the living example and you can do it! A gift of the Camp is that we all see business differently. We have different perspectives, but we have all been brainwashed with what business is supposed to be.

I have experienced profound shifts in how I view business, money, conscious co-creation and MYSELF in relation to all of it. Having this beautiful combination of a Soul fingerprint reading and Conscious business coaching I feel well equipped to enter back into the “business world”. I better understand what my natural gifts can provide and feel hopeful about applying this wisdom to my conscious projects. To allow the journey to be effortless and in perfect alignment with my energetic, emotional and financial needs. I have gained insights into my “true calling” and feel the support of our motivational group, and of course our two loving, gracious, encouraging and focused facilitators.

What facilities do I have when I camp for real (tent)?
Are you only allowed to start "a new Greenpeace" at this Camp, is that what Conscious Business means?
The Camp won’t interfere with what you do. The goal is to provide a process for you to gain deeper clarity on why and how you do things and what creates results. And it turns out that with greater and deeper consciousness of the things that actually governs results, our businesses naturally share more value more effortlessly and become more sustainable. With more value delivered, we also tend to receive more money. With less effort needed, we tend to be much more relaxed and joyful. Win, win, win. No, to join this Camp you don’t have to start a new Greenpeace. You will find that a conscious approach to business helps you to naturally create more of the results you actually enjoy and less of the results you don’t. And this will happen in a much more efficient way than if you follow someone else’s “10 steps for a successful business.” In following your own personal process, the business you create will be aligned with your values and desires. On top of that, your conscious business will be a greater contribution to a thriving eco-system and the individuals in it.
What is Conscious Business?
Conscious Business consists of two words: Conscious and Business. Business is in mainstream consciousness defined as something that makes money. This definition and the fact that money since the 50s been the measurment of success fo most nations in the world, is one of the main reason why we see ourselves sacrifice the things that are important in life for money. The reason we find ourselves stressing and creating pressure, allthough we know better is because our unconscious (the conditioned mind) runs most of our life (yes also you). Scientist measuring your brain waves can know what your decisions will be around 7 seconds before you are conscoius about your decision yourself! The decision is already taken by the uncionscious before you have any awareness of the decision. By bringing these unconscious belief systems to the surface by powerful coaching and spiritual exercises we are free to create a business that is a process of value-creation. And what we used to know as business can now be turned into something that is effortless, joyful and deeply meaningful for you as an individual. We become the change we wish to see.
Consciousness is a quality of awareness, the force that allows us to learn, grow, and develop. In this case, conscious business means that we dare to question ourselves. Its within ourselves that the old paradigm of business lives, and thats the ony place we will ever be able to change it. Every process that dares to question itself evolves. Any process that doesn’t question itself becomes stagnant and later also self-protective. If you don’t update the software in your phone it will get stagnant, but if you update to the latest software (developed by people that has been questioning the old one) you phone will just get better and better.
Since business as a mainstream phenomenon is unsustainable and been stagnant for some decades, it needs an update. Add consciousness to your business and it becomes better in all aspects! The traditional models for business were established for a very different world, one limited in possibilities and information. But the world has continued to change, and the models for business must adapt as well. We live in a world where access to knowledge is no longer an obstacle and where the possibilities are infinite. In the creation of a successful business, our most important resources are individual clarity and a network of supportive people. We need more people like you and me that dare to question the previous version of business –and dare to question themselves –in order to evolve as a species and share more value with one another. Then we easily become the change we wish to see and our business contributes to a thriving eco-system and the individuals in it! Experience this yourself by joining the Art of Startup Camp by Conscious Business Community.
Why Art of Startup Camp?
Because you have more value to share with humanity then you may realize.
Because it’s in the startup phase that we all need most support. Together 1+1 = 3.
Because you will become the change we wish to see in the world.
Because you deserve the new paradigm of business.
