In order to develop lifelong learning, we believe it is important to focus our efforts on youth. As tomorrowʼs drivers of change, we believe they will make the most effective use of the resources and skills given to them for overcoming the challenges that lie ahead.
Going through a period of their lives where their personality is quickly changing, we believe it is important for young people to be empowered to develop an identity that will allow them to act with greater autonomy, personal responsibility, and self-respect whilst being successfully integrated into society.
Meditate to Regenerate therefore addresses the four pillars of learning as outlined by the UNESCO financed International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century: learning to be, learning to know, learning to do, and learning to live together.
Because we believe the first and last pillars are less emphasized by formal education policies, we primarily concentrate our activities on learning to be (self-development) and learning to live together (social cohesion).
Whilst we use a variety of different strategies to achieve those objectives, our primary tool is meditation as we have found from both personal experience and empirical studies that it provides a very effective way of achieving self-development, resilience and social cohesion.
We use the techniques of Sahaja Meditation, a UNESCO Center for Peace partner that offers simple techniques that generate the effective and tangible results we require.
We are dedicated to offering the experience of meditation to anyone who is interested regardless of nationality, race, religion, ideology, or financial constraints.
