For This Special Event

Join us for this special program in conjunction with the Napa Institute Annual Summer Conference. This event with Barry Rowan is based on his latest book, The Spiritual Art of Business.

This book includes forty days of guided meditations built on Scripture, Barry’s real-world experiences, and stimulating reflection questions. This book is very compelling as it invites us to develop a live-giving perspective of our work as seen through the eyes of God. We want our lives to matter, including the hundred thousand hours we will work in our lifetimes, and I believe these ideas can be transformative in helping us live more fully for God in the world.


The cost for this event is only $500

The Spiritual Art of Business Program: Connecting the Daily with the Divine

Barry's Background

From a range of executive leadership roles over a forty-year career,
Barry Rowan was instrumental in building or turning around eight
businesses primarily in the technology and communications space,
including one that sold for $10 billion. He is now leveraging that
leadership experience into developing people and organizations through

serving on boards, writing, speaking and “holistic accompaniment.”
Barry came to a surrendered faith out of a crisis of meaning in work that bubbled up in
his late twenties. After wrestling with these questions for the next eight years, the
transformed perspective that emerged has animated his career ever since. The power of
this experience, the energy it brought to his own life, and seeing so many others
wrestling with these same questions compelled Barry to write The Spiritual Art of

Barry earned his MBA from Harvard Business School in 1983, and his BS summa cum
laude in business administration and chemical biology from The College of Idaho in

One of Barry’s great joys is serving alongside Linda, his wife of forty-two years and his
“partner for life.” They have two married sons, three beloved grands, and live in
Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
