WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the power of oneness, the united energy of our souls.
WHAT WE SUBMIT TO
SOULCHI submits our business decisions to the following guiding principles:
DIVINE MIND AS PRINCIPLE OF HUMANITY
"We believe in the power of identity and that our true identity is the expression of Divine qualities.
As we train and build our recognition of and demonstration of these qualities, a new world of clarity, strength, peacefulness, resilience and splendor will arise internally. Those individual internal worlds will combine and amass to collectively unfold a new world rising globally.
The future that we are transformed into, is unleashing our natural ability to realize global harmony, through a graceful shift in our identity. A world that has an increased capacity for innovation and delivers upon the velocity of the accomplishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals."
~ Najuma Abiela, Founder, SOULCHI
HUMANITY AS PRINCIPLE OF BUSINESS ACTIVITY
We believe in intrinsic dignity. There is no “they”, only “us”.
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
"I have a dream that my four children will someday live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
SOULCHI is fulfilling on the "content of character" part of Dr. King's dream by training people in the language and recognition of character and virtues, such that it replaces society's misplaced allegiance to external characteristics of any kind.
BEINGNESS AS PRINCIPLE OF GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
~ Mahatma Ghandi
PURPOSEFULNESS AS THE PRINCIPLE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
"We believe that everyone has the capacity to discern our true calling through building the muscle of purposefulness. As we discern our true calling, we create a clear vision to unfold. We believe that our lives are meaningful and each human being on this planet is here as a unique and valuable contribution to humanity. Getting trained in the virtues will unleash our natural ability to be a strong and loving contribution. We enjoy giving excellence and find the opportunity in every experience."
~ Najuma Abiela, Founder, SOULCHI
WHO WE ARE
There is a level of rigor required by those who join our team. One of the essential differences between being a part of an organization with a traditional economic model vs a social enterprise, is the atmosphere of stewardship. Successful stewardship requires one to take on the same transformation as an individual, as they are standing to create out in the world.
This is one of the most powerful distinctions we contribute to our clients.
What we are up to is fundamentally about liberation. We understand that we must be individual leaders, a body of leadership and an organization made up of individuals who absolutely welcome, value and are prepared for transformation. This is not just a peak performance or employee engagement endeavor. This is not just a pathway for our clients to benefit financially. This is a movement of global liberation. This movement just happens to be financed through the enormous value that we bring to our clients in their specific context.
We have a responsibility to recruit for the qualities required to lead and fuel that trajectory or else individuals and our organization will simply get chewed up and spit out in an attempt to effort our way to some sort of future impact.
Our context is that we are already standing in the future fulfilled of millions of individuals and thousands of organizations and government bodies, having been trained in the discernment and demonstration of higher level qualities called the "virtues". A future, where the decision-making that comes from this global army, has naturally fulfilled on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and has given us the harmonious world of peace, equity and inclusion.
We are calling forth individuals, teams and organizations to stand in that future fulfilled with us and be the possibility of being unstoppable with joyfulness and ease in communication.
