Self Knowledge: Exploring our Values

In our everyday life we easily lose touch with what matter to us and often park activities that fill us up. Connecting to our core values is a powerful tool that supports decision-making. This enables us to make thoughtful and responsible choices, analyze their implications and to take meaningful action in every moment of our lives.

This resource contains four lessons from the Curriculum for Life:

  • 1. Which values guide us?
  • 2. Where do values show up?
  • 3. What are the unwritten rules?
  • 4. How should we live?


They are aimed at 14 - 16 year olds and aim to develop like skills in areas of social awareness, compassion, empathy, perspective-taking and decision-making .
