HOLISTIC VALUES STATEMENT
INCLUSION AND RESPECT
I welcome diversity of belief, faith, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, intellect, ability and age – and value the unique contribution of every individual.
I recognise the sacred interdependence of all life and behave so as to protect the health and
sustainability of our natural environment now and for future generations.
I recognize spirituality to be a normal and healthy part of daily life, as people experience the wonder of nature and all creation;
and I celebrate the many paths that explore this wonder and its meaning.
At home, at work and in my community, I am committed to respectful, loving and positive relationships.
I maintain a life style and gain my income in ways that benefit and do no harm.
GLOBAL AND LOCAL CITIZENSHIP
I actively engage to build community, alleviate injustice and relieve suffering; and deplore any situation that limits the rights, development and fulfilment of any being.
I am actively committed to managing my own health and development;
and I value life as an ongoing process of learning.
