Having effective young leaders is an essential component for maintaining a vibrant world community in the future. They are the next generation policy makers, environmental stewards, innovators, and parents.
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
The goal of the Mindful Awareness Program (MAP) is centered on broadening the scope of education to include social and emotional skills, attentional training, and the development of other virtues that support personal, social, and environmental health and well being.
“Being part of the Compassionate Leaders Program established my interest in travel, my eternal love and fascination for India, and my desire to give back to the world. Through my experience with the Flourish Foundation, I was introduced to the incredible vastness of the world and methods to cultivate my own mentality, balance, and compassion.
In light of environmental degradation, hate crimes and violence, weapons of mass destruction, wealth inequity and global poverty, never before has our human impact on the world been so drastic. With our population set to reach 11 billion people in 85 years, it is imperative that we consider the consequences of our way of being in the world.
Given the global crisis we all face, never before has mental balance and global compassion been so necessary for our survival. If we can cultivate true inner contentment and free ourselves from the narrow confines of self-centeredness, then it may be possible to live sustainably with the personal conviction of being more rather than having more.
