For Groups - Community, Friends, Workplace, Classroom
Living Values Education Distance Groups - for the community or workplace environment, and for implementation in every classroom, wherever groups of people come together.
The purpose is to bring small groups of people together. Using the Living Values Self Reflection and LVE Values Activity book anyone can host their own group. Previous interaction or facilitation with Values is not a requirement. The LVE Study Group Guidelines - 'How to for Hosts' explain all the "how-to and how not to's" for hosting your own effective and successful group. Study groups are for people of all ages.
Through this experience, you may be inspired to join with us and the hundreds of Living Values Education facilitators in over 40 countries through formal Facilitator training - see note below.

Living Values Education Values-based Atmosphere Book (desktop & download version) or Values-based Atmosphere Book (phone version) - ALIVE invited contributions from all its Associates, all Focal Points for LVE and LVE practitioners about what a Values-based Atmosphere means for them in their work as educators: What is it? How can it be created and sustained? Where can it be found? What are its benefits? Why is it important? What impact does it have on my personal life, my attitude and mood in school? How does my personal life affect my work as a values-educator? What is the relationship between a values-based atmosphere and LVE activities? What difference does a values-based atmosphere make to academic performance? How does LVE and values-based atmosphere make a difference in the home, in classroom and school? How can teachers and parents learn to create a values-based atmosphere in workshops and classrooms?
Responses from the LVE community have allowed us to just publish a beautiful 52-page book dedicated solely to LVE's approach to a Values-based Atmosphere. The book offers different perspectives from different teachers, trainers, practitioners and parents as they share their thoughts and experiences with LVE. It's a must read for everyone involved with education and also to all of us seeking to improve our own lives!

- The very best way to come to fully embrace and bring Living Values into your life is to share. You can offer a 'closed circle' for a special set of family or friends or you can be bold and offer an 'open circle' to a wider group of people in your community. Whether you offer a group in your home on a casual basis or develop a more active role in your community you are providing a 'Gift of Service' that opens doorways for the soul to pass through.
