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 a humanity on the fundamental questions

about who we are, the meaning of life, and true happiness.

We are dedicated to providing programs and publications

to bring spiritual wisdom and contemplative practices into the contemporary lifestyle.

Our aim is to make the stories, lessons and practices of various spiritual traditions

accessible for the contemporary seekers.

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 reached the ultimate wisdom about life

and then taught by parables and spiritual practices.

 

Our programs are not religious and are open to everyone.

We welcome all who are on the journey of seeking.
