Our values


For healing to occur, we must learn to work together. This starts with us.


The future will not be created by solo practitioners. It will be co-created by communities of people sensing and responding to what is emerging. 


Love is not irrelevant to organizational life. It is essential. We believe in designing love-based systems. 


Crafting resonant, safe, and brave spaces for people to learn and connect (with themselves and others) is an essential act of hospitality.


We are all co-learners. Everyone has something to learn, and something to offer. 


We strive for what is equitable and empowers all to flourish. We commit to dismantling oppressive systems and creating the conditions for all to rise.


Creative risk, connection, and healing is only possible when there is safety present. We work to foster the psychological safety that promotes bravery.
