Since 2010, Flourish Foundation has innovated and facilitated programs that teach life skills and transformative tools through ethics and values, meditation and experiential Inquiry.
The heart of our work focuses on the human potential to be morally and ethically responsible world citizens. Through our tenure as a social-profit we have seen that nurturing this potential individually and collectively empowers us all to care deeply for ourselves, each other and the planet.
Until recently the general approach for addressing global challenges has been creating more effective laws and governmental policies, strengthening domestic and international security, or innovating new technologies. Although many of these strategies have been helpful, these interventions fail to address the root of our global problems, the destructive views and behavioral tendencies that create institutional inequity, unbridled consumption, violence, and apathy. Given this fact, many of humanity’s greatest thinkers in science, religion, philosophy, and politics have agreed that in order positively transform the world we must begin by transforming our own heart and mind.
If we can cultivate true inner contentment and free ourselves from the confines of self-centeredness, greed and hatred then it may be possible to live sustainably with the personal conviction of being more rather than having more. With this shift from quantitative to qualitative growth, each one of us can peacefully and wholeheartedly contribute to preserving the conditions of life for all future generations.
