Virtue Bundles 

How do you cultivate the whole person?

We have created a catalog of virtues to answer that question. Nine categories encapsulate bundles of virtues that develop important aspects of character, "...acts benefiting others. " or "...sensitive to subtle forces..." give you an idea of the content of each posters message. 

Acknowledgment

Each virtue recognizes an aspect of inner development and points to our essential view about life’s challenges and complexity. To develop with harmony, one has to serve others, be committed to their cause, persevere and maintain their humor. Together, these constitute our disposition and temperament.

Altruism

“…acts that benefit others.”

Commitment

“…enthusiasm in the face of adversity.”

Heroism

"...it takes courage to take a strong stance."

 Humor

“…ability to see the lighter side.”

Mettle

“…persist and endure the frustration.”

Relationship Bundle

The give and take of our connections and bonds—from family to friends—is a universal experience. Accepting others, warts and all is a skill. We accept people, so that fear and untrustworthiness does not take root. In return, others see our goodness and warmth; they seek us out.

You receive all four virtues; one in each style. 

Kindness “…warm-hearted, considerate, understanding.”
Candor ”...to speak one’s mind and not hurt someone’s feelings.”
Compassion “…ability to empathize with others.”
 Reliability “…dependable because of a deep commitment.”

 We seek ways to express our humanity in the world. Along the way, we inspire others to express themselves without worry of being judged. The world is huge and we want to explore it all.
Creativity “…use your talents to break new ground.”
    Confidence “…and be humble about the outcomes.”
Curiosity “…desire to know the whys and wherefores.”
 Courage “…one must lean into a problem…”

Mindset

 We don't fret over obstacles, we don't waiver about our goals! We look at challenges as opportunities to improve  universal betterment.

Equity “…your ability to be fair and impartial”
Character “…values, aligned with the quality of their deeds.”
 Veracity “…you cannot be anything but honest.”

Tranquility “.. your inner calm prevails.”
Balance “…learned how to deflect distractions.”
Patience “You hunker down, sit still, and concentrate…”

Ingenuity “…a wonderfully creative imagination.”
 Initiative “…offering help and taking charge of tasks.”
