Values: The heart of it all

‘Values are like fingerprints. Nobody’s are the same, but you leave ’em all over everything you do.’ — Elvis Presley

At the heart of everything we are and do is Values: They are what keep things alive. Values define us, guide us, and provide us with meaning. They are part of our identity as individuals, and guide our behaviours and decisions at home, at work, or within our communities.

Values allows for the well-being and cohesion of relationships, communities and organisations.

In this workshop we will look at:

• What are values and why they are important to us as individuals and collectively?

• Why values work and when you may want to use them?

• Practical tools that help to identify your driving values and define them

• Group discussion and activities around values

• How to bring values more into your life, community, organisation: Practical tips

• Action and integration

The workshop will include some centring (mindfulness), learning, group discussion and participation.

This session is for anyone interested in learning more about themselves and learning how to create more cohesion within their communities and organisations.

Values may be an area you may have never given thought to, or an area you feel clear on.

If you have done values work, like us as humans, they are always changing, so this is an opportunity to review them.
