Our Vision, Values, Mission
Globe Star’s vision of navigating one’s life journey according to the natural inclination of the heart’s capacity to love, is about utilizing our human potential for observing and reflecting upon fixed elements (universal human values) and exploring, with others, how these values directly affect our daily living and social environment, and then the subsequent quality of life (physical/social/emotional) impact and influence this creates for an individual’s experience of life.
The vision to follow the natural path of the heart and navigate ‘by nature’ was inspired by the true, navigational story of Captain Marvin Creamer. Read More …
