At Mana Artisan Botanics, they strive to be a company that places values over profit and incorporate a big picture worldview into their offerings. Alongside the life teachings they have all had over the years, many Hawaiian values have also informed their way of life and doing business.
They are inspired by and infused with a respect for the land, for the well being of people and for their own right relationship among themselves as well as with their creations.
Here are their three driving operating values:
To ‘Imi ola is to “seek our highest purpose in life.” When we practice ‘Imi ola as a personal value, we create and fulfill our own destiny to arrive at the highest form of our well being. As a company, they seek to have a clear vision and fulfill their mission to its greatest potential.
Kuleana is a practice referring to one’s personal sense of responsibility, referring to a reciprocal relationship, such as the one between people and their land, the aina. Through such symbiotic relationships, individuals maintain balance within their community and with the natural environment.
Aloha is the outpouring and the receiving of the spirit.
Living with the”Spirit of Aloha” is living a life based on love, peace and compassion. The deeper meaning of Aloha is about interacting rightfully in the natural world—and being in harmony with local farmers by sourcing our ingredients directly from them.
