I have reflected on the word inspiration and have realised that it is really the power of the logic and transformational properties behind VbE that is the real inspiration. Humans seem to be longing for a cultural transformation, which is based on a shift of consciousness that will focus on universal, positive human values such as respect, love, compassion and trust. People like you and me too often sense that limiting values, such as greed and excessive materialism, are causing much unrest and dissatisfaction.
That is why I believe that worldwide people of all ages are adopting the philosophy of Values-based Living: valuing self, others and the environment. This philosophy is being practically displayed in values-based schools, companies and in individuals.
Values-based living promotes mentally healthy schools as I wrote in this blog: https://mentallywellschools.co.uk/do-schools-nourish-mental-health/
Students at Ark Boulton Academy took part in VbE’s Annual Conference. Rayz Ali said, “Neil, I was actually there as a student listening to your talk and I found it incredibly inspiring.”
