Description of the charities activities and outcomes
*The charities main purpose is to bring about positive change in the world by empowering
individuals to bring about positive changes in their own lives (i.e. the charity is not looking at
political solutions, but helping individuals/families in the community first).
*To achieve this purpose the charity is involved in a variety of educational activities and programs including meditation, self development, stress management, positive thinking etc. These can be conducted in properties owned or rented by the charity, or by certified teachers in various other locations, including at community centres, community exhibitions/fairs etc.
*The charity participates in many community events of a general nature as well as offering specific courses and residential educational programs.
*The courses and programs offered are based on the Brahma Kumaris Meditation practice and the associated spiritual wisdom that both supports and is derived from the meditation practice.
