Sharif Abdullah is an author, trainer and a leading catalyst for inclusive social, cultural and spiritual transformation. He teaches groups and individuals how to understand and practice inclusivity – the connection with all other beings. Sharif's books include "The Power of One: Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times" and "Creating a World That Works for All." He is the founder and president of Commonway Institute and the originator of the Commons Café and the Common Society Movement.

Sharif has criss-crossed the planet, taking his inclusivity work to over twenty-five different countries and close to 100 distinct cultures, working with groups who struggle with their differences: heads of state and poor rice farmers, peace activists and members of militias. He has appeared on several international globalization forums. Sharif’s peace-making efforts contributed to the 2002 historic cease-fire in the 20-year-old ethnic/ civil war in Sri Lanka.

Sharif writes:

“My work is essentially spiritual. Not the empty platitudes that are mouthed on Sundays (or Fridays or Saturdays…), but a real-time dynamic search for meaning in a world gone crazy. We are not here to increase market share, freshen our breath or root for the home team. We are here to actually act like we love each other, and to act out that love on a daily basis. Spirituality for me is an unrelenting commitment to honor the Divine within each of us. I can’t do that if I am at war with others or at war with myself. I am committed to ending war. I am committed to creating a world that works for all.”
