The UK Values Alliance and the Brahma Kumaris (UK) are delighted to invite you to this special online event exploring and celebrating this year’s theme of COMMUNITY – the theory and practice of how to create powerful, positive communities in which people feel valued, accepted and heard in a world that often rides rough-shod over our humanity.
This morning session is an opportunity to take time out to reflect on, meditate, and share with others the essential part human values play in the creation and sustenance of any thriving, healthy, happy community.
We will aim to recreate the powerful, peaceful and empowering atmosphere of the annual day retreat, which we have held on World Values Day in previous years and we will explore our inner self, so that we can connect with ourselves and with others in more authentic and meaningful ways.
