Where it is alive, sustain it.
Where it is dormant, revive it.
Where it is absent, invite it
We assert business and industry, communities and countries, are bettered by a work-place hospitable to spiritualty and friendly to interfaith diversity. We believe individual happiness, health and wholeness cannot be separated from the spiritual dimension; and the same is true of our institutions and global networking. Central to healthy spirituality is Character. By character we refer to the qualities of trust and loyalty, dependability and responsibility, honor and self-control, truth and moral courage, duty and humility. We invite people of like thinking to join us in actively and courageously welcoming and including the spiritual dimension in both our public and private life, and to nurture spirituality by sustaining, reviving and inviting it in our lives, businesses and institutions where we work.
To the Glory of God
Our purpose and intent is first and foremost to please God. We deliberately shun the pursuit of public praise and self-aggrandizement. Our constant prayer is that all we do individually and collectively in the World Spiritual Health Organization be singularly focused to the Glory of God.
We began this organization with the understanding “except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it” (Psalms 127:1) and we commit to manage it in like manner by always seeking His blessing and guidance. We believe “the only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world”(Marianne Williamson). And while neither ourselves as individuals nor WSHO as an organization are perfect, yet we persistently pursue excellence. We pursue impeccable character and consummate clinical competence (love) in our training and ministry to the peoples of the earth.
We are boldly and unashamedly Christian; yet through our life journey and experiences living in, traveling through and engaging peoples, cultures and religions throughout the countries of the earth, our lives have been blessed and enhanced. We welcome a global perspective and diversity in WSHO and believe in and promote interfaith dialogue and collaboration among the vast constellation of religious traditions and spiritual practices that believe in and worship the Divine. We believe religious freedom is an inalienable human right and that all people ought to be allowed to worship how, where or what they may choose.
