It is with great JOY that we launch this innovative new platform that allows you to collaborate in the evolution of the concept of Sacred Commerce.
When we wrote the book, we envisioned it as our own blueprint for how we want to live, love, and do business. We have woven into it the best of what we have learned and developed. We knew there are many who shared our dreams and visions for a new culture, so it has been our intention from the beginning to create this platform that allows others to add their voice to ours, and to develop and grow this meme together.
Sacred Commerce is the party-cipation of the community in the exchange of products, information, and services that contribute to the revealing of the Divine (i.e. beauty, goodness, and truth) in all, and where spirituality — the return to Self — is the bottom line.
This is participation that is sourced in celebration and joy (hence p-a-r-t-y…cipation), with choice and responsibility at its core, versus a participation that is weighted down with duty and obligation, demands and expectations. It is a participation involving co-creation, where one already knows how to create by oneself but prefers to create with others, where one shares the success of that creation equally yet takes full responsibility for any failure. After all there is no one to blame.
Sacred Commerce is also about the commerce of You. It is the commerce between you and your emotions, thoughts, desires, and imagination, the commerce between you and your higher self, the commerce between you and the divine in the myriad of ways that is manifest in your reality.
Sacred Commerce, the book, is designed to be one of the first of a new style of book we call “living” books. The 2007 publication had just two authors and nine contributors most of whom have never met. Currently we are working on the second edition of the book, in which we hope you will be a contributor. If you go into the Collaborate section you will find all the initial chapters there ready for your party-cipation. You will see the chapters we are personally in the midst of adding to the book. You can also add a chapter if you have something you feel is relevant.
Think of this as a portal that allows you to experience a rarified atmosphere; of a world where commerce is a sacred activity that elevates human relationships and accelerates cultural evolution. This social network is designed to allow culture creators to contribute to the work – to improve, challenge, add, rate, review, highlight, edit or just inspire by uploading related videos or pictures. Our aim is to combine the genius of many minds as we further the adventure and exploration. By no means do we have all the answers, in fact, we’ve only begun to identify the key questions. Your help, energy, stories, and suggestions are encouraged and welcomed. Party-cipate with us in whatever manner makes your heart sing.
We are involved in a cultural evolution. No longer are we limited to learning from gurus, teachers, and scripture. The Global Citizens who we are consciously evolving into have access to all traditions; they can pick and choose and custom-design their own unique spiritual practice and path. The spiritual hierarchy of love and support has spread and awakened consciousness throughout the species so that we are now able to mentor one another.
We are excited to learn from you!
With love and respect,
Ayman and Rowan
