Openness

Everyone is welcome to join us in exploring the wilderness outside and inside of us. We welcome diversity.

Gifting

Divoko is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Generosity does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value. A gift is a manifestation of freedom.

Authentic Self-expression

We believe that every being is unique and reaches its full potential when sharing its unique gifts with the world. We support each other in the art of authenticity and respectful giving.

Radical Self-reliance

Divoko encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

Communal Collaboration

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to create and promote public spaces, works of art, social events and networks, and other methods that support diverse ways of collaborative interaction.

Leave No Damage

We act respectfully and beneficially to the societies and planet we are part of. In action we are fully aware and considerate of our surroundings. We leave places in a better state than when we found them.

Participation

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We explore ourselves and the world through mindful action. Everyone is invited to work, play, and contemplate.

Immediacy

Full presence in a moment and the resulting immediacy and freedom are some of the mightiest tools of an explorer. It opens up gates to unknown worlds, it builds bridges to other humans and non-human forms of life. No idea can substitute for this experience.
