Principles of Transformation
Based on core values that emphasize the importance of empowering the self, families and organizations; these principles center on the theme of attaining true balance in life – balance measured by physical, psychological and spiritual health. These principles challenge individuals and organizations to realize they are more than the sum of their behaviors; they must take responsibility for their actions and never forget to leave those they meet along life’s journey in a better place than they initially found them. This can be achieved by creating transformational experiences which foster positive life changes and personal empowerment.
