Is your professional life based on relationships with staff, co-workers, or business partners? Have you experienced frustration in these relationships? What if awakening consciousness was the context at your workplace? What if conflicts in your work community were acknowledged as opportunities to heal collective wounds? What if the mission of your business was to usher in a sustainable, spiritually fulfilling society? Sacred commerce is practicing presence in a commercial environment.
“Leaders are stewards of the collective consciousness who steer the community toward what is sacred,” write Terces and Matthew Engelhart. “Leaders hold the seat of love even when the stormy weather of doubt, fear, or scarcity rolls through any entity. While the collective shadow clings to appearances, the leader-shaman uses his or her tools to distinguish and reveal the illusion disguising itself as real. Somewhere in the community, someone has taken too much ‘separation medicine’ and the leader is the doctor on call.
The Kindred workshop is all about relationships: Are we going to use this relationship to awaken together? What if love is a presence – a state of mind? What if relationship is awakening to this realization? What if life is an inside job and what you are hoping that a relationship can fulfill can only be attained in your awareness?
