All human beings have needs. Some go unexpressed and some are loud and clear. At times those needs may feel in conflict with someone else’s needs, yet when we commit to seek ways to meet all needs, we illuminate a path towards creating something greater than what we originally thought possible.
As a practice we strive to distinguish our needs from our preferences, desires and self-protection and are committed to exploring any friction or perceived “problem” with an open heart and mind. This process activates an emergent field of opportunity that allows us to discover and reveal the higher needs within every situation.
In Eden, we hold sacred our faith that all needs can be met and that all of our decisions and actions can be made to serve the whole. We are unsatisfied with any conditions that leave any person’s needs unmet.
In other words:
Help a buddy out and do what you can to support one another, even when you would rather not.
