Shari Arison is one of the most influential women in the world. She is the leader of a successful business empire and one of the largest private philanthropic foundations in Israel. From growing up with her father, Ted Arison, the founder of Carnival Cruise Lines, to her acquisition of the chairmanship position of the Arison Group, Arison possesses a unique perspective on both business and spiritual growth.
In Birth: When The Spiritual and The Material Come Together, Arison provides her vision for creating a new reality for the future, generated from a marriage of the spiritual and the material. She currently sees the world collapsing into a mess of personal and corporate greed - a world rampant with financial corruption, environmental negligence and decaying social values. In Birth, she presents a compelling message that every person in the world is capable of contributing to change. Arison's account chronicles her own journeys, both spiritually and in business, that led to the repositioning of the Arison Group as an enterprise focused on balancing profit with a strong commitment to sustainability and philanthropy. She passionately advocates mutual responsibility, intimately outlining how one must first turn within him or herself and attain inner peace to work toward the larger picture of world accord. With Arison's plan for the future, every person can convert crisis into opportunity.
Birth illuminates the convergence of the spiritual and the material and presents valuable insights on their crucial connection. Arison powerfully maps out a model that will enable individuals and corporations to incite change and ultimately give birth to a brighter future.
"I believe that Shari Arison can play a crucial role in our achieving world peace, and BIRTH is an important first step in that journey. Her book teaches us that it is through inner peace that we can create larger, global change. BIRTH connects the material to the spiritual, and provides a blueprint—for both businesses and individuals alike—of a new world about to be born."
—Brian L. Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives, Many Masters
From Publishers Weekly:
Just in time to replace the now-defunct (or at least diminished) greed-is-good ethos on Wall Street, Israel’s wealthiest daughter, Carnival Cruise Lines CEO and major philanthropist, Arison, presents a spiritual approach to successfully running a vast business and effectively giving back. Raised in Israel and Miami, Fla., the thrice-married mother of four and head of the Arison Group (with controlling interests in Israel’s largest bank, among other investments) has an experienced, authoritative voice that benefits from her candid bravura, unafraid to divulge the messages she claims to have received from “up above” through dreams and the wishes of others. In simple language, she also recalls many painful and difficult chapters in her life, as well as lessons from her study of the world’s religions. Her journey has left her with a rather secular devotion to self-knowledge and authenticity, what she believes are the keys to maintaining order and principle among chaos. Arison’s proposal is that business should be driven by core values—integrity, purity, vision, and vitality—rather than financial gain. Though her own enterprises are given an outsized role, Arison proves that new age ideas and generosity can exist harmoniously with pragmatic leadership strategies.
