The Jacob's Ladder Mission & Values
Our mission and values weren't designed by an ad agency, and they weren't created just to have a nice plaque on the wall. The entire founding team contributed to the development of our mission and values and made a commitment to use them as a guiding force in all that we do.
The Jacob's Ladder mission is to cultivate an awakening by fostering an environment where mindful living and a loving concern for self, others, and the earth nurtures the roots of sustainable recovery.
Community - Loyalty and fellowship provide the caring, familial support for growth and achievement.
Compassion - Unconditional positive regard for self, others, and the earth is the fabric that binds our healing community together.
Empathy - Opinions and judgments are destructive to a healthy community; empathy requires reflection, purpose and insightful understanding.
Accountability - Practicing personal discipline and community responsibility is a loving commitment to recovery, growth, and autonomy.
Authenticity - Knowing and accepting our genuine self honors our character and spirit - and frees us from the burden of external pressure and influence.
Honesty - Personal healing and community health require transparency and reality; enlightenment is unattainable in absence of the truth.
