Virtues Project, Aotearoa New Zealand

​The website for the Virtues Project in Aotearoa New Zealand, run by the Virtues Project Trust Board.

 

The Virtues Project is an initiative, which began in 1991 to empower individuals and families to live by their deepest values. It was inspired by the desire to do something to counteract the rising violence in and around families. Education is the key to transformation, but it must involve education, which touches the human spirit.

The Virtues Project offers an approach which calls people to remembrance of the virtues, the qualities of character and the simple elements of spirituality honored by all cultures and sacred traditions. However, it does not promote the practices or the beliefs of any particular religion. It’s grounded in the simple wisdom of many world religions, all of which describe the human virtues as the highest aspiration for humanity.

Virtues are more basic than values. All cultures honour virtues such as courage, love, honesty, loyalty, excellence and service, yet they apply them differently according to their own diverse value systems. The strategies of The Virtues Project help us all to remember who we really are. You can find out what the virtues are here http://www.virtuesproject.com/virtues.html and discover the strategies for applying them in your daily life here http://www.virtuesproject.com/strategies.html .
