We believe that compassion  and connection are core to healthier,  more flourishing people, organizations, societies, and natural ecosystems. 

Our Vision
We imagine thriving organizations whose criteria for success
are about more than power and wealth. 

We see a world where resilient, thriving individuals are engaged in high-quality and meaningful work, collaborating with creative and inspired colleagues in organizations where they feel supported, challenged, and valued.


We envision a compassionate society where people live in healthy, safe, connected communities, while respecting and nurturing
our shared natural environment.
