IAHV has played a major role in transforming my and my friends life through the techniques and processes they taught us. I have the courage now to handle any tough situation in my life with smile and ease. It has restored the peace in life for me and several others. IAHV is doing an amazing job for the community, saved many lives, brought happiness to several homes and families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

IAHV has to constantly engage in raising funds since they offer their courses and services for free. I wish I could get them a lot of funding and recognition from the government especially because of their remarkable service to Veterans

IAHV has been doing great work for many years. My kids have benefited tremendously by doing their breathing courses (art EXCEL). The organization is run by volunteers and the money raised by course fees is used for society in general and veterans and prison inmates in particular. Please look in to supporting this organization.

The most striking thing about this organization and one that gives instant credibility to it, is that its entirely volunteer-run and I think mostly volunteer funded also. So literally these people are devoting their time and money to see a better world come about. In fact that's one of the teachings of the programs- to put yourself in service to others for true happiness.

On the downside, because its all voluntary, sometimes things can get a little mismanaged. Just a tad, but still impressive to see (and be a part of) all that gets done.

On a personal note, I have found lot of love and direction through this organization

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make some volunteers be paid staff

My 8 year old took Art Excel Course through IAHV and I see tremendous changes in him. I see him more calmer, responsible, loving, giving and happy! The breathing technique that he has learned has been of great use because whenever things don't go well at school, he comes home and directly goes to his bedroom and does the technique. It calms his mind and helps him with his emotional suffering! He later shares with me what happened and he himself tells me the solution to deal with it! Its so amazing to see your child taking action in a positive and healthy way! I am glad that I know this organization because it teaches a child to fish rather than giving a fish :)


Love,
Happy Parent

This is a phenomenal organization - the type of work it does, it directly transforms the life of folks - from Youth Empowerment workshops for teenagers to handle stress; to helping people around the world to "re-build their lives" after natural calamities; to helping veterans deal with PTS & reintegrate back to regular-lifestyles; giving hope to prisoners; etc..!

I have been very fortunate to be a volunteer for this amazing organization and see results first hand, and am sure will continue to help out in any way possible!

This organization had a life changing impact on me. Words will not do justice to the work done by these people. One needs to experience the courses offered by this organizations and its sister organizations.

I am a volunteer and supporter of IAHV for a while now. I have donated to various causes like the Tsunami in Japan, earthquake in India, earthquake in Haiti, etc.
I take particularly special pride in supporting the YES program offered by IAHV in schools. The program teaches young kids techniques to manage stress, control negative emotions - especially anger in young kids, be peaceful, and brings up their positivity, creativity, prepares them for the world they enter in to after school life, and sows the seeds for success in their lives. I have had the opportunity to listen to kids who have experienced the benefits of YES offered by IAHV at a fund raiser in San Jose, it was beautiful to hear transformation in kids in their own innocent words.

I will always support IAHV. IAHV offers great tools for me to make a positive impact on the planet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

(1) I would like to have IAHV make presentations on their YES program in as many schools across the world as we could. Ofcouse that required huge funding, and funding is the biggest constraint for IAHV and the YES program today.
