Ryland Engelhart’s Philosophy Is Gratitude: Thoughts On Soil, Sacred Commerce & Sustainability
“Love is not something found in a person, place or thing. It’s something that is ever present in our hearts and always available as a gift and it costs nothing to share it.”Ryland EngelhartLast week we explored the world of regenerative farming, soil health and biodiversity as critical levers to improve human health. Consolidate food security. Drawdown carbon. And backpedal climate change.Today we expound on that theme with entrepreneur, restauranteur and social activist Ryland Engelhart.Ryland is the ‘Mission Fulfillment Officer' and co-owner of Café Gratitude and Gracias Madre, a family owned group of legendary plant-based restaurants. The epicenter of California vegan cuisine & culture, it's a platform he uses to not only feed people amazing food but to cultivate community — and most importantly, inspire more gratitude into our lives and culture.In addition, Ryland is a speaker and passionate advocate for sacred commerce, community building and regenerative farming principles, which he supports as co-founder of Kiss The Ground, a non-profit that provides education regarding the connection between soil, human, and planetary health. Among its board of advisors are former podcast guests Paul Hawken, Dr. Zach Bush and David Bronner.If you enjoyed those conversations, or last week's exchange with John & Molly Chester, then you're in for a treat with Ryland.This is a conversation about the importance of soil regeneration and its impact on everything from food security and climate change reversal to improving human health.We open with Ryland’s hippie upbringing. How he learned early the philosophy of using business as a force for good — something he calls sacred commerce.We discuss how doing good — adding value to people’s lives — is not only always the right thing to do, but also the best long-term path to profits.We explore the origins, trajectory and intentionality behind his family's incredible group of restaurants — Cafe Gratitude, Gracias Madre and his sister’s Sage Plant-Based Bistros — which together form the cornerstone of plant-based dining in Los Angeles and beyond.Then we dive into the principles of conscious capitalism, the importance of regenerative farming, and the reasons why soil health is such a crucial component in the holistic equation of sustainable human, animal and planetary health.Finally we discuss his various film projects, including his documentaries May I Be Frank* and Kiss The Ground — a must see you might have heard Woody Harrelson recently raving about on Marc Maron’s podcast.But more than anything, this is a conversation about love, awareness, and the power of gratitude as a living, breathing philosophy of life.You can watch it all go down on YouTube....
Ryland Engelhart From Cafe Gratitude On Sacred Commerce
Today, our special guest is Ryland Engelhart, who is the Mission Fulfillment Officer for Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre (two of my favorite restaurants which I frequently dine at). If you live in Los Angeles, San Diego, Newport Beach, or San Francisco, and you haven’t yet gone to Cafe Gratitude…you need to go and experience the extraordinarily delicious, nutritious, healthy food and positively inspiring atmosphere Ryland and the team have co-created there. Ryland is also a leader in sacred commerce, not just through his restaurants, but also as workshop leader and a speaker. He is also the co-producer of the award winning transformational documentary “May I Be Frank“. Our interview hits off with Ryland’s raw, real and compassionate perspective that speaks to the discord and divide many of us have felt in the U.S., let alone the world. We dive and explore the essence of sacred commerce as Ryland tells the story of how Cafe Gratitude went from a mom & pop restaurant to a thriving franchise that sets a new standard for positivity, health, and great vibes that attracts a crowd from all around the world. Some questions I ask… What’s sacred commerce? What were the founding principles behind Cafe Gratitude’s success…and have they evolved since? What influenced you and the founding team to create Cafe Gratitude into such a positive atmosphere? What are your daily rituals for creating more inspiration, gratitude, love, kindness, and light in your life? What advice would you give businesses and entrepreneurs who want to practice sacred commerce but don’t know where to begin? How has investing in your employees paid off in the business and in their lives? Tune into this energizing episode below!
