"WHEN A BOARD MEETING in Halifax [Nova Scotia] opened with a prayer, former advertising executive David Hawkins was not surprised.

" 'Spirituality at work is a big topic, and one that seems to be a lot easier to have the conversation about today then it was 10 or 20 years ago,' Mr. Hawkins says.

They also want others to be able to express their spirituality in appropriate ways—without being evangelical about it.'
