Overview

Shari Arison - considered the most influential woman in Israel and the richest woman in the Middle East, the leader of a business empire that spans the globe and the head of the largest private philanthropic foundations in Israel - has been on a lifelong spiritual journey. And she has a message for each and every one of us. We can - and must - transform the world. And we must start right now.

In her new book, Birth - When the Spiritual and the Material Come Together, Shari Arison wants to share her revealing personal account of that arduous journey and a blueprint of her vision for the future.

As the global economy staggers on the brink of collapse and the earth hurtles towards a looming environmental disaster, Shari steps forward to tell us that we have the power within us to turn collapse into change, chaos into harmony, the old unworkable conventions into a new model for living that brings together the spiritual and the material to create a better, brighter future for all of humanity.

Editorial Reviews

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.
