The Principles of Integrity

by Neseret on March 22, 2012

I believe the work of healing yourself and others is sacred.

I follow a code of ethics as a Nurse.

I have decided to adopted the principles of integrity.

I honor the privilege of working with the most intimate aspects of people’s lives.

I feel completely humbled by the fact people trust and allow me to be a part of their healing journey.

I want you to know these are the principles I will follow in our work together.

The Principles of Integrity

To help individual practitioners be effective in service and healing in the world, and to help shift global consciousness, the Society of Shamanic Practitioners believes the following pledges represent the core principles of integrity in this pursuit:

I pledge to work in sacred alliance with Spirit, and to be informed and guided by that Source, and not my own ego, in offering service to others.

I pledge to recognize the wholeness inherent in every person or group or circumstance that comes for healing and to honor whatever form in which its pain is presented to me.

I pledge to be mindful of speech, thought, and action and their impact on building relationships both in the present and through time into future and past.

I pledge to be respectful of others, even in their differences.

I pledge to work with compassion and non-judgment.

I pledge to do no harm and to avoid any sexual misconduct in my work with clients.

I pledge to maintain clients’ privacy.

I pledge to be honest with clients and other practitioners, and to be truthful in the manner in which I present myself in public relations and advertising.

I pledge to offer fair and appropriate fees.

In service to others, I pledge to keep my own life and personhood in balance to the best of my ability.

Peace, Love & Gratitude,

Neseret, I am so happy I came over and wish I had, earlier. I don’t know why, but reading this post brought tears to my eyes. This is a beautiful pledge and I admire you for your work. I can only imagine how lucky are the people with whom you work. It is people like yourself who make this world a much better place.

With love and looking forward to interacting with you, Vidya.

Dearest Beautiful Vidya,

I’m so glad our paths crossed. Thank you for visiting with me here and for your kind and encouraging words. I came across this beautiful pledge while researching Shamanism and landed on the Society of Shamanic Practitioners website. The pledge resonated with me at a core level. And yes the first time reading it warmed my heart and soul! I think it is a wonderful pledge to adopt for anyone who have the privilage of working with people’s minds and hearts.

Likewise I look forward to getting to know you better and learning and growing together. Wishing you great blessings and peace,

Peace, Love & Gratitude,
