Sharing tools to build peace within so that there is greater peace without

Only when self-hatred is healed will the mindset shift from oppression of the planet to one of working in grateful partnership with it.

We envision a world where compassion for self, others, and the planet is the baseline and where people are unblocked and free to bring their creative gifts to share with the community and Papatuanuku/Mother Earth.

Our Vision

Pou (6)

Christmas  2016

Location Mandi Lynn's kitchen in Upper Hutt New Zealand.

"Auntie Mandi?"

"Yes, Harper?"

"Am I fat?"

She was five and her name was Harper.  She was our founder's niece, and that exchange, followed by the death of her daughter's dear friend, Holly, to suicide were the turning points that lead to the founding of Every Body is a Treasure Trust.  Horrified that Holly’s gift to the world was lost and that Harper’s gift was being dialled down through body shame, Mandi Lynn, a holistic nurse and master photographer, gathered her creative community around her to start the trust.  The goal is to support youth to develop a life-enhancing skill base of self-compassion, holistic well-being, and non-violence. 

We are supporting the development of leaders who are heart first, self aware and skilled in tools necessary to create positive community change.
