Griffin - Azul - Customized

About the Virtues


Dreams . Imagination . Treasure

We are surrounded by a vine of mystical flowers and dreams are guarded by a magical Griffin.  Our aspirations of goodness and justice are held by little birds who navigate the turbulent clouds of life, indicating the preciousness of our quest. The Griffin guards us on our search for truth—treasures of both inner awareness and outward actions. The magical creature guards us on our journey and we are safe from the vicissitudes of life.


Each Certificate of Harmonious Development is 11.5” x 17” printed on 80# gloss or 100# matte paper with a superior show stopping finish suitable for framing.  Personalize your selection by adding your student’s name and including a short blurb that tells us about them and their struggles. Each personalized certificate is accompanied by a special letter of recognition from the Headmaster of the Patagucci Institute.

    The  Value of Harmonious Development

    Our library organizes forty eight virtues along an positive executive function model. You can use the words to acknowledge growth and affirm change in your child, a co-worker or a student. Harmonious Development is the idea that effort produces change in individuals. Outcomes do matter, yet they are not the complete picture. Certificates of Harmonious Development recognize the internal outcome of effort. They signify that you recognize something of great value in the recipient. To students who struggle, or coworkers who strive or students who study hard, words matter. As people seek to master tasks at hand, there is something of great value - greater than accomplishing a goal, that occurs. 

    What matters is that others understand the nature of their effort, the unseen aspects of self actualization and efficacy. The purpose of Certificates of Harmonious Development are to acknowledge the recipients for their inner accomplishments.
