Mission

Chocolate Sauce is a collective of like minded people awake to the wonders of the world and intent on doing some global good.

What is Spirituality?

At Chocolate Sauce we define spirituality as those qualities of the human spirit such as love, compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, contentment, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of harmony. All of which bring happiness to self and others.

Spiritual growth relates to that aspect of one’s inner life through which individuals acquire insights into their personal existence that are of enduring worth. Spiritual Intelligence is the ability to behave with Compassion and Wisdom while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the circumstances.

Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I belong? What is the meaning of life? These are the reflections of a child’s spiritual journey.

Our Philosophy

At Chocolate Sauce we believe in educating the whole child. Our educational philosophy is based around the notion that the human relationship, the bonding and love which is shared in such a paradigm, is just as important as any facts that the teacher can impart to the child.

This company seeks to go beyond the typical but limited mission of instructing children in job skills to teaching them life skills; how to create a meaningful and joyful life by experiencing harmonious and enriching relationships; how to create opportunities for self expression; how to live with a sense of purpose in one’s work, how to develop leadership skills that will produce people who can deal more successfully with life’s challenges and better cope with their ever-changing world. 

 

Publisher & Editor in Chief

Shelley Lewis, a.k.a. Chocolate Sauce, is a spiritual entrepreneur. She lives between New York and London in pursuit of her passion to create books and businesses that help people live well. She is the founder of Chocolate Sauce and Sacred Space NY, and writes on spirituality and living for the Huffington Post. Her vision for Chocolate Sauce is to create something fun, wholesome, and chic in the world of children's literature!

Shelley moved to New York working for Christies in the Contemporary Art department and went on to work the Museum of Modern Art in San Fransisco, but her passion to make a positive difference in the world led her to do volunteer work in the UN and the National Science Foundation. It was during a trip to Bangladesh while working on the Sari Filtration Project that inspired her vision for Chocolate Sauce. Her encounter with the children, who, as she puts is: "had so little and gave so much" changed her life. Her first book, A Key To The Heart was created to connect children across cultures in peace and friendship and to raise money to help rebuild schools in Afghanistan. Chocolate Sauce has been her long standing purpose ever since.
