Michael Stone spent most of his vocational life as a corporate Organizational Development Consultant, Communications Specialist, and Leadership Trainer. His company, Mastery of Management International, focused on bringing heart and meaning into the workplace. For 25 years he worked with Fortune 500 companies, NGOs and social profit institutions throughout Europe and North America.

After a long sabbatical Michael has returned to the corporate speaking and training circuit because he feels that the information he brings to Conversations is vital to the future of our institutions and our planet.

Michael is the host of KVMR’s award winning show Conversations: Possibilities and Perspectives on Local and Global Issues. His show focuses on Environmental Restoration, Spiritual Fulfillment and Social Justice Issues. He is also a journalist who contributes to numerous publications, including his own e-newsletter, The Well of Light.

Michael has extensive training in movement and has been trained to lead Trance Dance, Soul Motion, and Gabrielle Roth’s Five Rhythms. He has brought his training in communications, gestalt, meditation, and psychology together with his spiritual and environmental conviction to develop a totally unique approach to bringing forth a new depth in environmental awareness.

He asks: “How can we really heal the earth when we barely inhabit our own bodies? We have lost our ability to feel our deep connection and relationship to the planet and all life. Lost in the technological promise of uninterrupted growth and a belief that we could consume our way to happiness, our worldview has become smaller and smaller until we are paralyzed to stop the destruction and pollution of our land, air, sea, and water. We have become bloated on our own unexamined beliefs and assumptions and we must wake up or we will end up where we are headed.”

His consulting, training, and journalism are expressions of his profound commitment to co-creating a more socially just, environmentally sustainable, and spiritually fulfilling world for us all.
