“Driven to leave the Earth in safer hands than ours – that’s it!”
– Nikeeta and Darius
(E), (A), (R), (T), (H):
We have researched core values from around the world, our local communities, our teachers, and from this we have developed a set of qualities/traits/attributes that are important to us to sustain and propel our children through life.
These qualities merge into our Gaia (Earth) philosophy to align with the four seasons of the Earth, as well as the four elements of nature.
Summer embodies the essence of discovery, risk-taking, empowerment, respect, spontaneity, and achievement, offering a time to make progress and embark on adventures.
Leadership, companionship, self-discipline, contribution, diversity, and commitment are all characteristic of autumn, when the Earth teaches us how to cope with things falling apart.
Winter represents a time of nurturing, resilience, integrity, responsibility, belonging, and guardianship, as the Earth demonstrates a period of inward reflection, collective unity, and fortification to endure life’s hardships.
Spring is a time of new beginnings, growth, and change, and it aligns with qualities such as openness, awareness, humility, self-reliance, continuous improvement, and adaptability, as the Earth demonstrates the importance of these traits for successful transformation and evolution.
