About Living Ways Foundation Living Ways is dedicated to creating a more hopeful, compassionate and sustainable world.
Living Ways offers educational and transformative experiences, primarily focused on key dimensions of wellness: people, communities and the planet. Living Ways initiates and supports key grassroots projects in areas of high poverty, raising hope in the face of despair.
Cherishing our Planet
Care and respect for the earth and the diversity of species which inhabit our planet is foundational to all we do. Although aware we cannot fix the entire world at once, we believe in infinite possibilities.
Children & Youth
Commitment to investing in children and youth is a priority of Living Ways. Believing in themselves, celebrating their cultural heritage, and developing key values will give children and youth the life skills to affect change in our world.
Acknowledging nature as being a primary teacher of innate wisdom and source of healing and wellness is the foundation for numerous events and programs at Living Ways. Though modernity and technology have certain gifts, they leave many disconnected from the beauty and magic of nature.
Understanding that poverty limits access to growth, skills and potential, Living Ways seeks to use innovative strategies to foster access to programs and education.
The Way of The Heart
Living Ways recognizes that the expansive qualities of the heart such as compassion and generosity create significant opportunity to raise hope in the face of despair.
Transformational Holistic Ways
Living in extraordinary times full of uncertainty and potential, Living Ways recognizes the essentialness of increasing consciousness and maximizing human potential. We aspire to have holistic initiatives inclusive of mind, body, heart and spirit.
Wisdom of Elders
Living Ways aims to increase awareness of the powerful role of elders, as well as disseminating their messages and supporting the concept of eldership for children, youth and adults.
Our mission is to develop and share practical knowledge and wisdom-based initiatives that heal and empower all people and our planet.
We envision a world where all people and nature are valued and contribute to the health and well-being of the whole.
