Guiding Principles

Humans are Co-Creators with the Life Force in transforming and evolving into a world of love, compassion, justice, spontaneity, play, humor, harmony, and healing.

We move toward what we declare is significant, which means our imaginations evoke immense power and need values-based guidance.

Servant Leadership with full spectrum consciousness calls forth the contributions and gifts of all for the greater good of all in the interconnected web of life.

Expressive arts, such as music, dance, and drama, can free the feminine spirit and restore balance in women and men.

Conscious healing and learning are integral and occur in all dimensions – spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.

Happiness is more likely when we are open, not attached, to outcomes.
