Compassion – For self, others, the earth and all living things – and as a tool to change the world
Expression – Telling our story and being heard. Rewriting our story with self as hero. The power of creative expression
Purpose – How the strengths and skills we’ve honed through our challenges can enrich our lives with purpose and meaning that will positively impact our ailing world
Transcendence – Our connection to “something greater”; community, solitude, nature, religion/spirituality, the Arts…honouring our own authentic spirit and that of the world.
