I enthusiastically encourage a love of learning through curiosity, integration, and embodiment.

I acknowledge that individual health is complex and interrelated to the health of our families, communities, and earth.

I recognise my humanity and actively seek to check my biases with opposing views and critical thinking.

I value transparency. I don't promote or financially benefit from supplement manufacturers, health products, or affiliate programs.
