Our Ethical Standards are Linked to Our Vision:
“A world where all peoples of all cultures embrace spiritual emergence to manifest a positive shift to higher consciousness for all of humanity.”
As ISEN we believe the following values reflect the behaviour underpinning our organisational ethos:
TRUST – It is fundamental that our environment is a place of honest communication that promotes and supports the belief that each person is worthy of trust and is treated with respect. We see the people and organisations who perform the same life-serving goals as allies rather than competitors. Like all wisdom traditions we trust in the abundance of life, embracing its challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.
EMPOWERMENT – Power and responsibility resides with the group, blending autonomy for individual and collective awareness. We are interested in empowering others. We help people interact with each other from a place of wholeness and to ensure everyone’s voice is heard. Through the decentralization of authority, everyone is powerful via the advice process, seizing collective initiatives.
INTEGRITY – Structures and processes are based on people being trustworthy and accountable. Our decisions and adherence to our values are based on the highest non-discriminatory ethical standards, the greater or common good and not on individual self-interest.
FIDELITY – In continuing Stan and Christina Grof’s legacy, we are intuitively guided in our mission from spirit and our passions to alleviate the suffering of those in spiritual crisis, and to spread and disseminate awareness of the transpersonal, for future generations.
TRANSPARENCY – We are transparent in all of our activities both internally and externally, encompassing our information flow, governance structure, finances, activities, and partnership agreements. We are open and accessible to public and internal scrutiny.
COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE – With our purpose as a guiding light, everyone individually and collectively is empowered to sense what might be called for. Our strategies and initiatives happen organically, the organisation and the people within it evolve through collective wisdom. We believe human beings and organizations as living systems are full of potential waiting to unfold.
AWARENESS – We operate with sensitivity, authenticity and self-awareness from our internal compass in our decision-making, using both facts and figures, emotions and intuition. We are interested in fostering conscious empathy towards the needs of others in order to enhance our own strengths and embrace vulnerability. We envision a world where everyone embraces spiritual emergence, manifesting and living from a higher level of consciousness.
