This activity is intended to explore values and determine how they help with decision-making and how we walk through life. Talking about and exploring our values helps us to be honest about who we really are, act in accordance with our internal feelings, and identify when we or others are acting outside those values.
For more on values sorting, watch our Building Our Bundle Episode on the topic.
To complete this activity, you will first need to learn about the Seven Grandfather Teachings. Reflect on these values and what they mean to you. Ask yourself: how do these values look in your daily life? Using the two values table worksheets provided below, identify which values are most aligned with your value system, particularly in your relationships. Next, select three of the teachings that are the most meaningful or important to you in your life. Using an X mark, which of the three chosen teachings do you practice most consistently, which is the one you need to practice most, and which one falls somewhere in between? Once you complete the two tables, reflect on your values by responding to five reflection questions.
