Our Courses

Worldwide Experience

We have trained nearly 50,000 facilitators in countless countries and at the United Nations. In Japan we began training facilitators in 1987, after already using these methods successfully for a long time. Not only did we travel to many places within Japan, but also used the opportunities during our development projects, like in India, Kenya, Vietnam, the Philippines, and many more, to support and train the forgotten underprivileged people, by using our methods.


Our Vision

Through enabling people to find and act in unison based on their hopes and dreams, instead of being focused on their past experiences, step by step we can achieve worldwide lasting peace. For this, we unite and build communities to become profound and radiating this new human culture.
