Interdependence – “Mutually dependent,” it is the balance of dependence and independence at its finest where two existing things enter into a relationship to mutually benefit each other and the system in which they live – a relationship of supportive empowerment. These symbiotic interactions do not sacrifice the individual self, in doing so ultimately sacrifices the whole. Interdependence is about the willingness to work together through applying the practice of reciprocity. It is true teamwork or partnership of collaboration, community, communication and respect for life. It is about cultivating thriving relationships, agreements and interactions that feed off of the well-spring of connection, balance and responsibility.
