A business without core values is like a ship without a rudder, a map without a compass rose, or the night sky without the North or Pole star. They are our stars to steer by and our foundational building blocks. When any decision is made we ask if it is in alignment with our core values. And yet they’re not rigid, they’re flexible like bamboo, able to bend when necessary and grow organically. Creating adventures and retreats which inspire each one of us, participants and team alike, to keep growing to be our best selves and to stay profoundly in love with our planet, her ‘guests’ and their wisdom both ancient and modern is at the heart of OTIJ. Our core values are here to guide us, to support the developing shape of our business and keep it ‘conscious and visionary’ as well as guiding us in our ever day lives. We hope they inspire you too.
