Ethics Principles

Our ethics principals follow the principles of Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share. Is what we are doing covering all 3 principles listed below?

Earth care is the awareness as us being the nature we are surrounded by. This means that we follow the leave no waste behind, watch where you step and sit, blending in with the sounds of nature, and honoring the concept that humans are part of the nature as opposed to being on top of the nature.

People care means building a community of friends and family; of people who reflect our core values; and staying a valuable member in the community. It means being the present moment awareness, and showing up in the integrity of mind, speech and conduct when it comes to our clients, friends, family, and ourselves. 

Fair share means returning surplus by governing our own needs; Can
we set aside resources for Earth and People Care?

Our Name and Its Meaning

The words “sound mind” are taken from the greek word “sophroneo”, which is a compound word combining words “sodzo” and “phroneo”.

The greek word “sodzo” means to be saved or delivered. It suggests something that is revived, rescued, protected and is now safe and secure. There is one other etymologic meaning to the word “sodzo”; and it depicts a person who was on the verge of metaphorical death, but then was revived and resuscitated because new life was breathed into him/her/them.

The greek word “phroneo” carries the idea of a person’s intelligence, or total frame of thinking – including his/her/their rationale, logic, and emotions. It refers to every part of the human mind, including all the processes that are engaged in making the mind function and perceive clearly. 

Now when the two words discussed (“sodzo” and “phroneo”) are compounded into one word, they make a new word “sophroneo” which pictures a mind that has been revived, salvaged, rescued, protected and is now safe and secure.

The word “garden” in the name represents (in the ancient mystery teachings) the unobstructed body of Adam and Eve, Śrī Macchanda Nātha and his equal Śakti, the consort pairs representing the integration and union of the masculine and feminine energy, and also representing the Pefected Light-Body Mahāsiddhas.
