    One thought on “Sacred Commerce: Business as a Path of Awakening”

    1. I found this book poorly organized and in need of a good editing hand, but I am glad I read it. The authors present practices they use in their business, Cafe Gratitude, to encourage the understanding of work as part of a spiritual practice. Many chapters end with simple practices that could spark good discussion or serve as a starting point for journaling. I found the authors' use of religious quotations disjointed but interesting and the book prompted me to think more deliberately about how my [...]

    2. The story behind Cafe Gratitude and their unique approach to creating a culture around people first and taking some big steps further to creating an environment where people in the organization being present and focused on the work at hand is paramount. Almost a shamanistic approach is taken. I had the opportunity to see the opening of the first cafe in Los Angeles and sense that something important is happening here.

    3. A quick and enjoyable primer for the concept of Sacred Commerce. The ideas feel a bit scattered, and I think someone might need to sit down with the editor, but the pieces are all there, if you're willing to put them together.

    4. One of the simplest books on how to create a business, organization and life you love. I am blessed and honored to share this work and teach these powerful, transformative tools.

    5. Love the concept and am taking a lot from it. Some of the steps along the way are a bit too far beyond logical for me. But I am all over love, grace, and accepting the abundance that surrounds us.
