We believe that the challenges we face in the world today require
fundamentally new approaches and perspectives.
We believe that in order for fundamental change to take place,
not only institutions but people's values must change,
that inner transformation is essential in achieving happiness, kindness and peace
on both the personal and systemic level.
We believe that spiritual wisdom and contemplative practices
from many different traditions around the world
have much to offer today in redefining our values
so that we can rethink our relationships
with ourselves, our communities and the environment.
Our work is about reflecting as humans on the fundamental questions
of who we are, the meaning of life, and the nature of true happiness.
We are dedicated to providing programs and publications
to bring spiritual wisdom and contemplative practices into contemporary lifestyles.
Our aim is to make the stories, lessons and practices of various spiritual traditions
accessible for the contemporary seeker.
We do this by working mainly in two areas:
providing evidence-based understanding of the benefits and effects of spiritual practices
and guidance for direct transformative experiences.
Our Spirituality & Science Forum brings together leading scientists
who are doing cutting edge research
to understand why and how spiritual practices can be helpful.
Our meditation retreats are designed for the participants
to have direct experiences for transformation
that are beyond the theoretical understanding.
Why do we call our work "parables and meditation"?
We are following the examples of ancient sages
who attained the ultimate wisdom of life,
and then passed it on through parables and spiritual practices.
Our programs are not religious and are open to everyone.
We welcome all who are on the journey of seeking.
