At Lifeworks we are committed to healing: to healing people, communities and the earth from violence and all forms of social injustice. In our mission, we acknowledge that the community in which we serve sits on the colonized land of the Anishinaabe Alliance of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawami, often referred to as the Council of Three Fires.
We acknowledge that the spirits of the original people pass through us on our city streets and the healing wisdom traditions of the indigenous people are part of our human heritage- which we honor. As such, we make every attempt to recognize the deep wounds and atrocities committed against the original people of this land.
At LifeWorks, we strive to integrate and live the following values in our relationships with each other, our clients and the broader communities we serve and with which we interface:
- To have integrity in word, action and spirit through practices of honesty, transparency, and reliability.
- To show respect through inclusiveness, fluidity, compassion, and trust.
- To shadow box with life’s difficulties, being willing to dance or wrestle with unknown, denied and disavowed parts of ourselves and others, including the messy and distrubing aspects of life.
- To bring fun & creativity into our work and the lives of those we touch through play, enjoyment, and humor.
- To behave responsibly and mindfully in matters of confidence, finance, and stewardship for the relationships that are entrusted to us.
