01 Dec: Dignity Part 1: Securing the bedrock

In this final month of this incredibly challenging year, I find myself reflecting on dignity. Why? Because this extreme situation has encouraged me to revisit foundational ideas and principles. It’s made me notice what really matters – to myself and those around me. It’s made me want to think deeper about the beliefs and values that provide structure to our behaviours.
Here I offer what I’m learning, from my own experience and from the ground-breaking work of Donna Hicks, about the unconditional nature of dignity. And I share my thoughts on what we can do to honour and secure the dignity that each of us possesses as our birth-right.
