Vision and Values

groupSilver Sage Vision

Our Silver Sage Village vision is to be a strong community, one that nourishes the body and soul, and celebrates and harvests our diversities and life experience. We embrace living sustainably on the earth, creating a beautiful place to live, continuing to grow, aging in community, and responsibly honoring our commitment to one another. We are committed to establishing a workable balance between having our own private lives, doing our share for Silver Sage Village, and reaching out to the wider community.”

In support of our vision, we embrace the following core values:

  • Compassion—we strive to more deeply understand and be open-hearted with each other, accepting ourselves and each other without judgment
  • Generosity—we freely ask for what we need and strive to give freely what we can
  • Respect—we honor and support the dignity and worth of each member of our community
  • Self-responsibility—we hold ourselves and each other accountable for contributing to the maintenance and well being of our community
  • Diversity—we embrace and harvest the diversity of life experience, perspectives, ways of being, and economic situations of our members and strive to support and integrate this diversity into a thriving community
  • Joyfulness—we approach the challenges of living and working in community with joy, fun, playfulness and frequent celebrations together
  • Mindfulness—we cultivate living fully in the present moment, enhancing our capacity to respond openly and with curiosity to our life experience together
  • Personal growth—we value and support the opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction that comes through living in community
  • Aging in Community—we strive to create a community that fosters caring and supportive relationships while expecting our members to be able to live independently and/or be responsible for their own health and personal care needs
  • Healthy living—we strive to stay actively involved throughout our mature years and to maintain a healthy lifestyle and outlook
  • Sustainability—we strive to use the resources of our community and our planet prudently and to find ways as a community to lighten our imprint on the earth
