  • Relations – as the personifications of connection – are the center of our engagement in the world.
  • Ethical action is the externalization and expression of a clear mind and an open heart.
  • Interdependence is the fundamental basis of our existence. Only by opening our hearts to others can we experience life in its full dimension. Diversity is essential for health, innovation and sustainability.
