“An invaluable resource for educators and parents. I enjoy teaching and parenting again!”

“The natural result of living our values is experiencing love, peace and joy. After this workshop I feel I can be proactive to the needs of the world by implementing positive changes at home, at my school and in the community."

“I felt truly inspired by the Living Values Education Seminar and I embraced the ideals and "values" immediately.  They were things that I already knew I believed and wanted to impart as a teacher.  Teaching the 3 Rs are important, but I always felt my duty was to do more, especially in this world we live in.…”
