Our belief is that through widespread adoption of relational ways, together we can increase well-being and create lasting positive change for ourselves, for our families, and for our planet.
What is the ORANS Community?
The ORANS community shares a worldview that all of humanity is connected and that we can't help ourselves if we harm or ignore others. We are change agents from all races, religions, genders, and nations. We don't bother with labels so we don't care what you look like, where your from, who you love or what you worship - so long as you have a desire to be relational in the way you live and you want to be part of spreading this peaceful and loving approach around the world.
The ORANS Community Interacts Relationally
As part of the ORANS Community, you are strong and brave, and you don’t use your power to hurt others. In being clear, you are honest--in a gentle way. You are also not soft or a push-over. You don’t crumble and cave in. You find a middle way of being that is good for both you and others. That way is gentle. The Seven Ways of Being Relational are your how-to guide for that middle way. They create a bridge to something new in the interaction that did not exist before.
Why Join the ORANS community?
By Joining the ORANS community you will become a part of a network of people interested in promoting general well-being and changing the world, one interaction at a time. As a member of the ORANS community you’ll have the opportunity to participate in exciting events that will connect you to others and to your community, to challenge yourself with our ORANS challenges, to support the creation of crucial curricula that aims to help high school students learn the ways to quality interaction as they become more independent, and much more!
