As a non-profit organization, as fellow team members and as individuals, we are committed to deepening our embodiment of the principles and practices of the Roots to Thrive program. Like program participants, team members review, refine and re-affirm our commitment to collective Intentions and Agreements each cohort; we also use “check-ins,” “pause practices” and “compassionate witnessing” during our meetings, and engage in relational processes that support mutual healing, learning, and integrity.

The core principles that have been guiding the development of the Roots program are:

Trauma-informed practice:

Anti-racism, anti-oppression, and cultural humility for cultural safety

Health promotion and harm reduction 

Spiritual health and holistic approach 

Equity
