Every person is resourceful and whole.
We welcome emotions. Buddhism teaches that when used as information, emotions are powerful tools.
Every person is capable of self-regulation, navigating life’s ups and downs with confidence, and joy.
Thoughts are fleeting. Our thoughts aren’t always true. We trust change and our ability to adapt, reflect, and grow.
Curiosity without judgment cuts through stuck-ness.
Our nervous system is powerful. We overcome blindspots, lessons imprinted by past experiences, and reclaim clarity by accessing and leveraging our nervous systems.
When our everyday speaking voice is in alignment with our core values – head, heart, and spirit – we are more successful, experience greater joy, and deeper fulfillment.
We welcome friction. Friction is the gift of opportunity – to learn, grow, and improve. Buddhism teaches that when we come together in community, we rub against one another and cause friction that makes us smooth, like stones polished by a river.
Community is vital to a powerful leader. In community, our experience is reflected, shared, and validated. We are supported by and pushed to greater heights by our community.
Only in community does our work have purpose.
Innovation is accessible through diversity. Diversity of experience, backgrounds, and opinions help us disrupt and challenge systems of oppression.
We continually examine our own internalized racism in order to foster the racial equality and anti-discrimination that is paramount to the survival and liberation of all.
