No Matter Where You Live,

No Matter How Much Time You Have,

No Matter How Much You Would Like To Get Involved,

 you can …


Living Values Education now has a new opportunity for adults to change their lives. A way of being part of this discovery process is open to you, allowing you to make a difference in your life and the life of people around you.

Here is a short introduction about what we're up to.

LVE Distance Programs offer three facets available to anyone in the world:

1.  Independent LVE Home Study for Adults and Families — We provide via download from this webpage the full Study program, including audio files and accompanying Journal, at no cost. Should you wish, a print version may also be also available. This would cost approximately $50 to cover the cost of printing and postage. Monitoring and mentoring may also available. This can be done with or without certification depending on degree of interaction with the Associate/Focal Point.

2.  A LVE Study Group Program for the Community or Workplace — This is ideal for implementation in the office, community hall, classroom or wherever groups of people come together. "Managing a Study Group" instructions are provided. Materials provided as above.

3. LVE Facilitator Training Program — allows individuals who would like to have a role of sharing Living Values Education with others become LVE Facilitators. This comes with Certification equal to that of those who attend the normal five 3-day workshops. There is a requirement for attendance at one 5-day combination of an LVE workshop and Train the Trainer session after undertaking the Study and Facilitator program. There would be considerable electronic interaction with the Focal Point / Associate throughout the 12 week program.

One of our new Facilitators who trialed the LVE Facilitator Training Program in Australia, Denise Shaw shares below.

... "Most of my life I have spent supporting many people through their own hurdles in life, often ignoring my own. In addition to nursing and family life, I set up and ran a spiritual church/centre for over four years and continued for many years after this helping others through many healing modalities, teaching meditations and healing and doing multiple amazing journeys from  art, spiritual adventures, and following everything I could to grow in knowledge. Just looking for something!

I became aware of a huge empty space within me, no journey I had taken had filled this space permanently, all just for filling an interest or short lived excitement. There was no depth to it. I attended a Living Values introduction session a few years ago and decided I wanted more, a closer more in-depth look than a weekend workshop would give me. So I embarked on a three month in-depth look into myself doing the distance learning package as well as a few weekend workshops.  

I was not expecting this would make the huge difference in my life that it has. The material forced to look at myself, all of me, my hurdles, pain, grief, fears and blocks. I soon discovered what values were the hardest for me ... anything to do with me!!

I completed the course and wanted to help others gain what I had gained and became a facilitator. This was a very valuable experience for me, I found so much inside of me I had not healed and by doing so my fears lessened I grew a new understanding and compassion for myself. Something I previously only had for others. My fear of being judged was challenged; I won and chains around me were broken. My journey continues every moment.

I have a renewed vigor for helping others now. What I love about living values is you are supported to discover yourself and your potential. You are not told or taught what you should do but are supported while you unfold what is inside of you as deeply as you want to. 

I am further humbled to know I am the first person world-wide to engage this program on a full time basis by distance learning. And have been told my feedback on this has been valuable to the program. I found I engaged the program deeply and emotionally on a long term continuous basis by the distance program discovering hidden happiness and desires in myself."

Do I really need to know my Values? What's so special about these Values?

For each of the Values, we ask you to begin by reflecting on the questions below. Only you will know if this will be meaningful for you. Our recommendation is to experiment by engaging in the questions for just one value per day.

Explore just ONE value each day by asking yourself how you relate through these simple and yet evoking questions. Honestly contemplate during your day, or you may prefer to give yourself a few moments in the morning and in the evening. You will glimpse the potential of each value through your reflections. This is an opportunity for you to change yourself in a way that you wish. 

Once you begin one of the Long Distance Programs you will be asked to Live in Each Value for a week. It is revealing and challenging in a wonderful way.


Honesty:  Do I look for loopholes in order to avoid expressing my truth?  Do I expect others to be honest with me when I am not honest with them?  Am I willing to be honest even though I may be adversely affected by the outcome?  Am I truthful with myself, my relationships and my environment?  Am I willing to accept I may be wrong?

Happiness:  What is my state of contentment – of general wellness, health, harmony, and connection?  How cheerfully do I take on my duties? Is happiness a way of life and inner state of being for me … or is it a static place that is enjoyable momentarily, but that can easily be lost?

Cooperation:  How willingly do I work with the conditions I am presented with?   Do I welcome the ideas and preferences of others?  Do I like to do things myself, my way?  Can I compromise willingly?  Can I go without sometimes?  Do I recognize the inter-dependence of all things?  Do I need to be independent?  Can I accept help from others, whether I want it or not?

Freedom:  Do I feel freedom to be as I am ... to abide in knowing that I exist and I am of worth?  How often do I feel free from mind-noise; from self-judgment and criticism; from complication and confusion?  Do I feel trapped in my relationship, in my work, or do I know I have the freedom to make another choice?

Simplicity:  To what degree do I accept the present moment – what life is offering me now? Do I accept my life situation with willing ease or do I create struggle?  Do I accumulate things, knowledge, people, and acquaintances?  Do I trust that I have what I need?  Do I respect simplicity or do I seek complexity?  Am I often caught up in shoulds and self-judgment?

Unity:  Am I feeling whole, connected to life around me, to opportunity, or do I feel separation and isolation?  How aligned are my heart, my head and my actions?  Can I see myself as part of the greater community, or do I hold myself apart in some way?

Love:  How am I motivated in my actions by Love?  When do I feel pure unconditional love?  How do I express my love toward myself and others … how openly and honestly?  How willing am I to express my love toward all those around me?

Peace:  Can I hold my simplicity and keep still in myself even when external circumstances erupt into chaos?  Do I create a peaceful atmosphere?  Do I know the feeling of peace?  Is it for me a lasting or transient feeling?  Is it a feeling, or is it for me a state of being?

Respect:  Do I honor the worth of others and self in my day to day interactions?  Do I honor what I have with gratitude? How do I personally honor my life and all life forms?

Tolerance:  Where am I intolerant of others or circumstances?  Where am I intolerant of myself?  Where is my threshold?  What conditions support my tolerance, Is my tolerance limited by other stronger feelings such as resentment and fear, or can I knowingly acknowledge another’s worth and need to exist regardless of that which I don’t like or understand?  If someone or some condition is harmful to me, can I discern it, and do I find ways to care for myself in order to restore my tolerance?

Responsibility:  Do I like responsibility or avoid responsibility?  To what extent am I responsible for myself?  To what extent do I expect others to meet my needs?  Do I blame external circumstance when things go wrong?  Do I accept and take responsible action to make the best of a situation?

Humility:  How often am I willing to be present to my vulnerability; to my discomfort? How often do I respond in defense?  Do I ask for help from others?  Can I ask another for forgiveness?  Can I forgive myself?  Do I trust that life will present me with the challenges and opportunities that I truly need, or do I resist what I have and complain about how things could be different?  Do I accept the consequences of my actions in a spirit of self-empathy and learning, or do I judge harshly myself and others?

Now what...?  If that part was thought and emotion provoking you are probably going to get a lot out of playing with and engaging in Living Values for the period of the 12-week Course. Have a look at the Home Study options and tell us where your interest lies.
