Sacred Commerce: Business as a Path to Awakening
When Matthew and Terces Engelhart first became sweethearts, they promised to live their lives together following and trusting intuition. Resulting from that commitment was an initial guidance to create a board game. Abounding River is an interactive way of practicing “being” Abundance in your life. Once the game was complete, Matthew and Terces agreed that it would be wonderful to offer a place where people could gather, eat and play the game. Café Gratitude was born and shortly thereafter. Now, their book Sacred Commerce: Business as a Path to Awakening tells you how you can have such a happy, healthy, successful live.
Also, rumour has it that they’re coming to Ireland. For more info, email Natasha@natashaslivingfood.ie or visit www.cafegratitude.com
Ondamed in Ireland
Ondamed is a frequency-based device that can be used for both diagnosis and treatment. It has a design based on decades of careful research from around the world. The stimuli are applied gently so that the right amount of energy is introduced into the body. A low energy pulsing electromagnetic field from an applicator induces minute current flows in the tissues. The fields are said to be barely detectible by the patient. The device introduces currents into the body that balance or cancel harmful signals, and delivers other frequencies demonstrated to support a patients physical and emotional wellbeing. The Ondamed works to repair injured tissue or imbalance anywhere in the body. A number of widely used medical devices used to stimulate the repair of bone fractures are based on the same principles, and have undergone extensive clinical testing.
To find a practitioner in Ireland, contact Mary on 018304285 at Libra Natural Health, 44 Leinster St, Phibsboro. Dublin7.
