The author feels that the spirit in our workplaces is becoming a little tattered, and showing signs of "Soul Pollution". Those in the advanced stages may be plagued by exhaustion, stress, and the abuse of just about anything - spouses, stubstances, and fellow workers. This text examines the world of spirit/consciousness in organizations and offers to help those who find themselves dreading another day in the job. The author draws on theories of self-organizing systems to reveal how spirit shows up in new organizational forms.
