North America

Principles that we share and discuss as a group

Bildung is about cultivating a deep respect for the wisdom of tradition, local roots and combining it with the acknowledgement that we are all interconnected in some way.

Bildung is about the importance of place and making that physical connection that encourages us to have meaningful conversations and explore our values face to face.

Bildung is about continuously learning over a lifetime, gaining the general knowledge, skills, and habits of thinking to live an increasingly meaningful and inspirational life.

Bildung is about deepening our social connections as a way of enhancing our lives and the health of our community.
