Values are how we bring our Purpose to life. The foundation’s values have emerged over time from the way that we work together – they are living values which guide our practice and guide our strategy.
Generosity At the heart of the eclfoundation model of exchange lies generosity. The foundation gives (funding, practice, training) so that catalysts and practitioners can bring this practice to schools and communities. In exchange we ask that practitioners share what happened in practice – in the form of stories, videos, cases and reflections, that you join a worldwide community that is sharing, enquiring into, sense-making and innovating together.
Truth and Compassion are the lived experience of constellations. They lie at the heart of most spiritual and philosophical practice – the ability to speak truth with compassion. They inform how we are as a community, how we behave towards ourselves and others.
Co-creation and Play are so central to any work with children that they are often overlooked by the adult! The foundation encourages its catalysts and practitioners to become well skilled in ecl practice but then to mix it with their own practice – creating something fresh and authentic that is fit for purpose in own context. This is our approach with our people and with those with whom we work. After all – this is what we want to stimulate in the education system. This is what we want children to experience.

Courage ‘Come to the edge,’ he said. They said, ‘We are afraid.’ ‘Come to the edge,’ he said. And they came. And he pushed them … and they flew. Guillaume Appollinaire. It requires courage to do things differently, yet if we want change then courage is required.
