OUR 15 VALUES FOR CONSCIOUS LIVING

LIVING FROM THE CORE
We agree to live from the core with integrity, taking responsibility to act consciously with the intention of loving.

 

DIRECT SPIRITUAL ACCESS

We believe that each of us has the ability to access Spirit directly. We respect our own and each other’s autonomy and authenticity.

WILLINGNESS TO STEP INTO POWER AND SERVICE
We are willing, each in a unique way, to step into our power in service of the highest good of the community.

SUSTAINABILITY
We commit to conserve, recycle and renew resources, to generate income through right livelihood, and listen to our sense of enoughness.

REVERENCE FOR LIFE
We honor the interconnected web of all life. Daily life is sacred. We believe that all beings are graced with the fundamental right to be.

INCLUSIVENESS AND ACCEPTANCE
We value diversity, honoring the sacredness of each person’s heritage, experience, wisdom and contribution to the whole.

COLLABORATION
We work and play co-creatively among ourselves and with other groups with complementary purposes and principles.

GRATITUDE AND GENEROSITY
Gratitude is fundamental to our way of being in the world, and we generously give back to our communities and to the Earth in a spirit of deep appreciation.

WITNESSING
With aware presence, we witness who we each are today.

WILLINGNESS TO PLAY AND LAUGH AT OURSELVES
Our most practical magic!

EMBRACING PARADOX
We accept and (at times!) embrace the creative interplay of opposites: light/shadows, tradition/evolution, freedom/limits, order/chaos.

SEEKING KNOWLEDGE OF THE WAYS OF WISDOM
We step into our sacred lineage, honoring the wisdom of our ancestors, elders and youngers.

GENERATIVITY
We commit to generating positive and creative energy to pass on to future generations.

BEING IN BALANCE
We honor the beauty, passion, power and expression of the dance of our inner being.

OUR BODIES OPEN US TO MYSTERY
We experience connection with Spirit through our bodies. We honor and celebrate our deep, visceral and intuitive body connectedness with nature and our natural cycles. Our bodies are living portals into Mystery.

The founders of Woman's Way Red Lodge, our previous organization, did such a beautiful job of creating “15 Principles" for the community. The current board felt that they really are values we use to live a conscious life. Hence, the new name of these Fifteen Principles is “15 Values for Conscious Living.”  

At this moment we only slightly tweaked these to reflect changes in the mission and vision of The Gaian Collective.  We think you will feel the resonance to these values with our new vision and mission. We look forward to building on these values as we go forward together. 

As always, many gratitudes to those visionary women who held the original wisdom to create such important values for living a balanced and healthy interconnected life with the natural world.
