Human flourishing

The course provides the knowledge of life as it is and therefore is the only way of life that is real. It does not have organised man-made academic or belief system that explains life, because life itself is the only primary source of the truth.

To know life, is to “be as one”, knowing yourself and everything else, it is the only way of life. A beautiful unity in the mind between thought, feelings and intention.
