  • Commitment: To overcome fear and give ourselves completely to the challenge at hand while leading a vital existence and never allowing ourselves to become complacent.
  • Humility: To assume the courage and the discipline to listen to our intuition and not our egos, always mindful of our place in the natural order.
  • Purpose: To muster the motivation and conviction necessary to pursue our highest aspirations in the face of adversity.
  • Balance: To maintain our focus and energy in life, in nature, and on the journeys we undertake while things we cannot control shift around us.
