From the Latin ‘principium’, principle means the beginning or the end of all things. The early Greeks used the term principles not only to express the origin of things, but also to express their fundamental laws and their ultimate objectives.

The Gateway Retreat focuses on developing a new ‘way of being’, rather then a ‘way of doing’, therefore principles take on even more significance in their role of expressing true origin, fundamental laws and ultimate objectives. This paves the way for an experience of foundational change in yourself.

The following guiding principles and values are at the core of The Gateway experience and will be called in continuously to guide your experience.
