Sacred + Commerce = Sacred Commerce

by 3 June 03, 2010




In an age when work consumes the bulk of most people's time, eighty percent of the population admits to professional dissatisfaction being one of the main reasons for seeking a more meaningful life. In Sacred Commerce: Business as a Path of Awakening, Matthew and Terces Engelhart, proprietors of the hugely successful organic, vegan restaurant chain Cafe Gratitude, explain how employees and managers can breathe life into the working world by valuing love before appearances as the antidote to our spiritual, environmental, and social degradation.

Every aspect of business, is an opportunity to make a lasting impression in the lives of both clients and employees. With Sacred Commerce, the Engelharts share their proven methods for fulfilling their vision of a both a spiritually and financially profitable business. Discussing topics such as mission statements, manager as coach, human resources as a sacred culture, and inspiring meetings, they provide a manual for building a spiritual community at the workplace.

Sacred Commerce takes the view that the empty promise of materialism is finished and that the future of business lies in creating a meaningful bond with customers. The authors expand upon the well-known fact that business is about providing a service, product, or experience that the market wants, by incorporating the idea this idea that a truly successful business not only makes money but makes friends.

Sacred Commerce is the perfect mix of personal and practical - a guidebook written by people who have felt success, not just spent it. In a world where increasing numbers of people are dissatisfied with their work, the Engelharts show that you don't have to suffer personally in order to pay the mortgage.

It's always worth revisiting what inspired us.
