The Story


This all started when I first got the idea for a ‘harmonious market’ when I was 23 years old. I had just recently decided to boycot walmart after reading an article called “Wal-Mart Asks Workers To Donate Food To Its Needy Employees.” Reading this article made me realize that what I had been wondering about for so long was a real. I was talking to my brother-in-law about how we needed a collective of harmonious resources. How we needed to stop making transactions with companies that don’t align with our values.

I remembered the deep gratitude that always came from something that was made with love. I knew the feeling of pleasure when creating something out of passion. I’ve always been interested in energy. Before I knew what it was called, I understood feng shui. I just understood the relationship of energy in all things. I understood the energy that comes along with items. I understood the connection of energy and our well being. In the making of an item was the person happy or in pain? 

The energy that an item posseses is in relation to how it’s manufacturer operates. Poor quality items are not only made by people in poor conditions, but are usually made of materials that are not good for the environment and cannot be fixed. We blindly consume products and services without any sort of connection to its source, thus we support unknown sources merely because it’s convenient, not because we support it’s sources. ROE was created to find intentional individuals around the world who revere such an exchange as an energy exchange that is sacred, individuals that actually want to connect and grow for the purpose of intentional energy.
