Business as a Path in Awakening
Check out this video looking at Sacred Commerce by NotTV
Come explore a new equation for being:
Organizations committed to self actualization
Awakened, Empowered People
+ Practical tools for communication and integrity
Fulfilled & Productive People, Abundant Profits, and a Just & Thriving Planet
We all know “business as usual” is unsustainable at best and the current system of profit over people and planet is falling under its own weight . We hear about it everywhere – corporate greed and mismanagement, financial boondoggles, the growing chasm between the “haves” and the “have nots”… an endless litany of bad news.
This is not the future we all want.
- What if business actually provided one of the major keys to the needed shift?
- What if business could be a path to awakening?
- What if business wasn’t a dirty word any longer?
Imagine a world where businesses and business owners are considered real leaders in bringing about the shift to a just, thriving and sustainable world for everyone. Imagine workplaces and organizations where visions for workable relationships, collaborative community and individual empowerment are made real.
A proven model exists, a new vision is possible.
…the next level of social enterprise
…a proven model
…much more than the bottom line
What is Sacred Commerce?
Founded by Terces & Matthew Engelhart, Sacred Commerce is a proven perspective which provides practical tools to empower organizations and individuals to nourish our greatest assets – our relationships… with each other, ourselves and our world. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn how to…
- See conflicts as opportunities to heal
- Create relationships as vehicles to awaken
- Increase productivity and profit while taking care of the whole
- Implement practices for your business that support your deepest values
How does “sacred” related to “commerce” anyway?
Sacred Commerce takes the great concept of the “triple bottom line” to a new level… because, at this point, being “green” and socially responsible aren’t enough. There’s something else – a missing piece. Sacred Commerce brings in this missing piece… Awakening. By allowing people to experience the fullness of who they are, to bring their whole selves to work and to their communities, Sacred Commerce businesses create the “quadruple bottom line” or PASS.
P… Profit – honoring the enterprise
A… Awakening – honoring transformation
S… Sustainability – honoring the Earth or the whole
S… Service – honoring community
How would Sacred Commerce benefit you and your organization?
Sacred Commerce is a proven model in which organizations of all kinds take an active interest in…
- creating great relationships with, within and without the organization
- fostering great lives for their staff and clients
- taking care of the whole – people, planet and profit
From this solid foundation, Sacred Commerce businesses flourish and the sustainability of companies and their people are ensured.
Sacred Commerce was developed by Terces and Matthew Engelhart, owners of Cafe Gratitude. Since 2003 they have created a structure for their businesses that provides tools for the foundation of the community and company to forward love and transformation. They have developed a curriculum for sharing Sacred Commerce through their book, Sacred Commerce, as well as their workshops. Get That You Matter offers workshops inspired by and founded in these principles.
Come learn about the companies which which have adopted this model and watched their people, their planet, and their profits thrive: Cafe Gratitude, Dharma Merchant Services, Conscious Brands, Samovar Tea Lounge, Get That You Matter, and more.
If you’re still curious, and have questions, we host a monthly teleclass where you can join in and ask questions and hear from people who have worked in a Sacred Commerce environment.
Check out what the Founders of Sacred Commerce have to say:
“This Sacred Commerce workshop gave me tools to bring into all areas of my life… to share growth, awareness, healing and awakening within my family and community.”
“I used to be stuck in the old paradigm – check my bags at the door when I show up to work… grit my teeth, and bear through the day. Sacred Commerce has been truly life-altering, in that my perspectives have fundamentally shifted. It provides this wonderfully unique atmosphere where work is no longer the strain, or issue getting in the way – but instead, it allows our workspace to become one of learning, growing, and healing.”
-Nick Bencivenga of Dharma Merchant Services ( A Sacred Commerce business)
“This has been an amazing, heart-opening experience that has brought me closer to the human spirit. A profound experience of connection. Thank you for this workshop. A delight.”
- Leslie Santos
“Thank you so much… I have seen vast changes in myself and all those who attended since we’ve been back. It was an honor to be part of such a life-changing experience.”
-Ayesha Pirbhai, Director of Operations, Samovar Tea Lounge
