Matthew & Terces Engelhart



Matthew and Terces Engelhart are coowners of Cafe Gratitude, an organic raw vegan restaurant. The couple also lead workshops in sacred commerce, abundance and relationships. Together they created The Abounding River logbook and boardgame, and are stewards of Laulima Farm.
Matthew Engelharts business ventures always aspire to shake up the existing paradigm. His Flax Clothing line he grew from a one treadle sewing machine to a 28 million dollar a year business. This all C.O.D. company (unheard of in the garment industry) was run out of an old dairy barn in central N.Y.

In the next insurrection, he and his wife Terces took on being restaurateurs. Their fourrestaurant chain, Cafe Gratitude, is an experiment in sacred commerce, as well as an organic raw vegan community center. He and Terces lead workshops in sacred commerce, abundance, and relationship as a path of awakening. They are the creators of The Abounding River logbook and board game and stewards of Laulima Farm, a jewel of tropical permaculture in east Maui.

Growing up, Terces Engelhart's father was a U.S. Navy pilot and her family moved often. She learned to get to know people quickly and develop a deep love for them. Terces read once that 90% of people die having used only 10% of their potential and in that moment chose not to be one of them. She became selfmotivated as a national competitive swimmer, TWA stewardess, Mary Kay Pink Cadillac Director, entrepreneur and business owner, mother of three, wife, grandmother and coowner, with her husband, of Cafe Gratitude. Terces life is about bringing out the best in others.
