Values

  • Quality of life - our life is our own, rise up and live it. Our life belongs to no one but us and that includes children, partners, lovers, family members, bosses and the government. We are the ones to decide how we shall live out the rest of our life.
  • Recognising and valuing important rites of passage for women such as menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, especially when they are so undervalued in our society.
  • The personal is political. Oppression and crimes against women and children occur worldwide, on a far greater scale than for men. It also happens in our lives, sometimes so subtly that we do not notice it until we look more closely.
  • Freedom, personal responsibility, accountability and empathy are important and all go hand in hand with one other. If we are not free, then we are enslaved. Without responsibility, we and others around us suffer. Not being accountable for our own words and actions oft means we get bitten on the butt (and not in a good way!). Add empathy into the mix to shape our support into non-coercive action.
  • Humans benefit from endeavouring to understand their own natures so they can move with their own natural cycles and rhythms. Supression of our true selves is something many of us do and this can destroy and deaden us from within.
  • Intuition and instinct are a type of visceral knowing that should not be dismissed or ignored. They are the tools of our most secret and innermost psyches and are there to guide and protect us.
