In all that we do, we want to be sure that we keep our values close to our hearts, that we keep them in mind for all decisions that are made, for all actions taken, with every creation. They are our yardstick, our inner voice that says “hey, is this the best choice?”. We also share these values with the people we work with in the hope that this will spread the love!
Of course it's not always easy to do this, there are challenging times and tests along the way,, but the more we do uphold our values,, the easier it becomes and eventually it's second nature.
We place value on Love, Compassion, Kindness, Respect, Joy, Laughter, Awareness and Honesty in ourselves and in others.
We strive to ensure that every decision and action encourages health, healing, empowerment, the anchoring of light & love for ourselves and those we come in contact with.
Love and Respect are key! We strive to always demonstrate and foster these elements on every level
Love and respect for mother earth through environmental consciousness, ensuring the lowest possible impact or footprint. By ensuring that we focus on being kind to Mother Earth. By considering alternatives whenever we use the earth’s resources as well as considering their impact.
Love and respect for communities by respecting local histories and beliefs, by employing and sourcing locally wherever possible.
Love and respect for families by fostering inclusiveness. After all there are many types of family, the more we share and include others, the more family we have and the broader each family unit.
Love and respect for individuals. This is a big one! We can do this by ensuring that we pay fair and equal wages, that we pay wages and moneys owed on time, or even early. That we provide healthy working conditions for all. That we ensure healthy food and drink are provided for ourselves and for others. That we respect others beliefs, personal boundaries and allow personal space. Communication of course is important for this, but also to have awareness for others needs. By fostering personal expression and freedom, by providing a positive environment for sharing and then to listen.
Love and respect for ourselves. This is also a big one – we are a mirror and are leading by example after all. We can do this by setting healthy boundaries for ourselves, by creating healthy working conditions on all levels, by honoring our bodies needs for healthy food and drink, exercise and personal time. By showing humility. By making cost effective choices without compromising our values or quality, by not settling for second best. And by being honest with ourselves and with others.
This all adds up to loving ourselves and others!
