His ultimate goal? Using a regenerative business model to create an economic engine that supports new life – not detracts.
A pioneer in his industry, listen in and learn about Tim’s existential reckoning moment, leap of faith, and the visceral experience of knowing what his life’s purpose was.
We chat about the essence of pause to hear your calling, the difference between regenerative and degenerative business models, and how aligning with your inner intentions is key to growth.
In medieval legend, there was a substance that could transmute ordinary metals into precious metals. This substance was given a name by the alchemists who sought after it: The Philosopher’s Stone.
It also was said to be an elixir of life, with the power to cure illness, renew the properties of youth, and grant immortality. The alchemists striving to create The Philosopher’s Stone referred to their efforts as the Magnum Opus, or “Great Work.”
Fast-forward to the year 2013: a 25-year-old named Tim Richards was searching for his life’s work. He meditated for nine months on how he could weave together the threads of his life as a philosopher, activist, and foodie into a meaningful career to serve the flourishing of himself and the world.
One night, as he was meditating before bed, he received a Download from the Universe. In his vision, he saw clearly that his life’s work was to start a sprouted almond butter company to teach people about the importance of sprouted food, while transforming the way that almonds were grown from destructive monoculture to healing polyculture.
The next day, he began following the operating instructions and founded The Philosopher’s Stoneground in his home kitchen. He alchemically transformed almonds into brown gold by sprouting, dehydrating, and stone grinding them into his legendary sprouted almond butters. Thus, The Chief Philosopher and Nut Alchemist commenced his Great Work.
