Who we are
Peace Through Commerce is a strategic, global, and educational nonprofit corporation dedicated to creating a world where all people enjoy peace and prosperity. It is powered by a dedicated team of peacebuilders.
Our peacebuilding technology and value-add to the world
Our peacebuilding technology is called the Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model–-a robust, multi-sector, living systems and consciousness model for designing and actualizing peaceful societies. Its parameters assume society is conscious, dynamic, living, chaordic, intelligent, and progressive.
The Matrix illuminates the core values, beliefs, and consciousness ecosystem forces of a community and identifies the best practices for peacebuilding within and among the key societal sectors–public, private, and civil society. It leads people to understand problems like poverty, war, inequality, and climate change from both human consciousness and best practices viewpoints. The Matrix methodology points out areas of values-agreement and guides stakeholders to create new solutions to age-old problems from a different level of consciousness than that which created them.
The purpose of the Matrix is to create an ecosystem of societal peace. The definition of societal peace in Matrix terminology is that time when society is generating justice, prosperity, and sustainability sufficiently to become a self-balancing, self-correcting, flourishing ecosystem of societal peace.
The bringing together of historically siloed and sometimes hostile sectors, honoring the consciousness forces at work within them, and creating a peacebuilding systems model to understand them is the creative gift of Peace Through Commerce and its Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model.
In short, Peace Through Commerce is a dedicated team of peacebuilders in the “mind-changing” business.

I believe business leaders can liberate the extraordinary power of business and commerce to create a world in which all people live lives full of purpose, love, and creativity- a world of compassion, freedom, and prosperity. I endorse Peace Through Commerce because it is dedicated to teaching the principles that animate how commerce, consciousness, and law can work inter-dependently to achieve sustainable peace. I wholeheartedly endorse PTC and encourage others to give PTC their support.
