Art of Living Foundation
August 22, 2013

The Art of Living Foundation conducts breathing courses (pranayama), yoga and meditation that truly help transform people for the better. They are dedicated to eradicating violence from society, and to eliminating stress from individuals. I felt elated after doing my first course, and now, after having done many, including the Advanced Course, I am no longer an angry, vengeful person; I have really changed. The Art of Living Foundation runs courses in the Port Philip High Security Prison in Victoria, Australia, as well as in prisons in India, and the inmates all transform from violent men bent on revenge, into friendly, calmer people. It's amazing! The breath is the link between body and mind, and through safe breathing techniques, pent-up stress that can lead to violence is eliminated from the body, making one feel lighter, clearer, happier. I highly recommend that everyone do the Art of Living Course. In fact, during the George Bush Jnr presidency, all NASA scientists were funded to do the Art of Living Course as part of their job induction, as it was seen that those who had completed the course performed better at work. The Art of Living also does much service to society, all by volunteers, especially when disasters strike, like Hurricane Katrina, and the first Tsunami that struck India and Thailand, rushing in to provide trauma relief to the victims. They are a wonderful Foundation, and one that I'm proud to be a part of.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make all the courses free of charge, however they need to charge for hall hire, et cetera, and as a registered charity in Australia, they charge a small fee for a big return.

CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY INC
October 26, 2012

I find the Centre for Biological Diversity Inc an extremely good charity that addresses the vital needs of our innocent animals, our environment, and thus our standards of living. They are always up-to-date, relevant and humanitarian in their choices of issues on which they move to act on. I give them 5 stars.
