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

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!
