Kites carry whimsical hopes and dreams; magic lamps grant wishes to those who ask; lanterns guide one on their journey. Patagucci depicts the story of the Boy with Four Names who ponders the meaning of his life. His journey takes him from East to West and back again. Eastern esoteric traditions and Western philosophy create a visual canon of symbols whisking the viewer to a wondrous place. Strength and determination develops in the viewer. Flowers and kites with eyes, watch over our dreams.
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.
