Together, we go higher.
what we believe
Life is creative. It plays itself into existence, seeking out new relationships, new capacities, new traits. Life is an experiment to discover what’s possible. As it tinkers with discovery, it creates more and more possibilities.” – A Simpler Way
Higher is one such expression of discovery. Discovery of our own selves; of what is possible when we come together. Our belief is that together we will be stronger, renewed and creative. Perhaps, this will lead us to envision a better world – just, able, alive and beautiful.
We see infinite possibilities for trials, errors, experimentation. This opens us up to new information, experiences and insights to help make meaning of the world. The promise is, freedom to be agile and creative. Perhaps, it will help us contribute to a better world.
We acknowledge that we are but a speck in this vastness of the universe. We may be participant observers and at the most witness the marvels of infinitesimal changes that underlie unlimited transformations. We recognize that we have been guided to try something together by a higher force – call it attraction, call it gravity, call it faith.
