The following guidelines have been put in place to provide insight into the expected conduct:
Respect – We are all human beings and having mutual respect for each other is the foundation for this Temple.
Trust – We are sharing a sacred part of our lives and Temple members should feel safe and secure with each other.
Acceptance – We should celebrate our similarities and our differences without judgement or ridicule. Discrimination based on race, creed, disability, nationality, gender, sexual preference, or religious belief is highly offensive and will not be tolerated.
Support – We should be there for each other, to help each other through difficult times as well as celebrating times of joy and to provide assistance, encouragement and friendship to fellow Temple Members.
Personal Responsibility – We are each fully in charge of our words, thoughts and actions. Taking control of your own life choices is paramount, ask for help if you need it, but ultimately make your own decisions.
Growth – We are a living, working Temple and we are synergistic in nature. Sharing knowledge and learning from each other, solving problems and finding answers by combining wisdom and developing understanding will enable us all to grow and the Temple to flourish.
Communication – Being there for each other is important, listening, understanding and keeping lines of clear and transparent communication open is vital.
Honesty – We are in no position to make decisions for others, however, giving advice and another perspective may help each of us to consider other possibilities. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind in a respectful way. We welcome all individuals or groups who may be curious about our spirituality, and will answer, to the best of our abilities, any questions openly and honestly.
Protection - We can make a stand to protect those who cannot defend themselves and show solidarity in the face of adversity. We need to stand up for those who are in a situation where they feel vulnerable and powerless. We should also protect our Tradition, provide information regarding our spirituality to any that ask, and attempt to correct any misconceptions about our spirituality that we may encounter.
