1 - the human
Our objective is to place the human being at the center of our lives by practicing daily our essential values :
Respecting ourselves and others : "nobody is right, each person has their own point of view". We honor each other for what we are and what we bring. We respect ourselves and respect others by our words, our choices, our actions and our rhythm. We are conscious of our emotions and assume full responsibility for them.
We favor mutual support, daily encounters and exchanges always respecting each person's privacy.
We make sure that the vital needs of each person are covered without taking charge of anyone.
We are open to others, by staying neutral, conscious that if we feel hurt and/or wounded, it belongs to us to adjust our feelings. We take care of our relationship to each other.
We support activities, and exchange of knowledge, by sharing them with respect leaving to each person the freedom to participate.
We develop our mutual trust by respecting the confidentiality of the exchanges. We practice the right word without slandering or making assumptions.
