Take Care of Vulnerability
Welcoming vulnerability leads to authentic relationships and a deeper intimacy with ourselves, each other, and the Earth.
Personhood becomes a gift to the world when it is strengthened in body, heart, and mind and given opportunities to express itself fully and courageously.
Build Beloved Community
The greatest currency we have is community. The principles of beloved community guide relationships within the learning community and in the larger communities in which they are embedded.
Respect the Ways the Earth Works
The wisdom in the living system of the Earth is at the heart of vitality-centered design. When practiced, it can lead to more vital and interdependent learning communities.
Love and Serve Others
Learning communities that practice these principles are prepared to serve the world with the courage, creativity, clarity, and compassion needed to meet the current challenges we face.
