Need for CHDHC
Who doesn't want to live a happy and comfortable life realizing one's full potential? However, there are so many confusions and unresolved issues that impact our being, relationships, and work. Although the average standard of living for humans is higher than it has ever been, we are still struggling with issues at various levels like, loneliness, depression, anxiety, lack of clarity on what to do, why to do, purposelessness, lack of trust, jealousy, hatred, disrespect, poverty, hunger, malnutrition, inequity, polarization, extremism, violence, pollution, resource-depletion, climate-change, and species extinction, etc are.
There is an immediate need to work on developing human consciousness to address the above-mentioned issues. Though it seems strange, the root of all issues is the unconscious living of human beings. Unless the development of human consciousness is addressed, there will not be any sustainable solution to the problems mentioned above. We believe that whatever we do other than the development of consciousness, is patchwork, addressing the symptoms of the problem only!
We see greater possibilities with Universal Human values education (Jeevan Vidya) in this direction. As an organisation we choose to develop the resources, design and facilitate various programs that are experiential, reflective, and rooted in making connections to the participants’ own life.
