30 years of working to advance our understanding of the mind toward conscious evolution
Today humanity faces unprecedented challenges. How can we apply advances in science and technology to ensure health and safety for all the world's people? Can we learn to tolerate and appreciate cultural diversity in an ever-shrinking global community? Can we learn to manage the planet's dwindling vital resources and basic life-support systems before it's too late?
Many worthy organizations address these issues in the political, cultural, and humanitarian spheres. But none focus, as does ISHK, on the root cause our very nature as human beings. What do we know about the way our brains work, about the way we receive and process information from our environment, about how our mental and nervous systems evolved, which create these crises in the first place? What other capacities might be inherent in our nature to help us rise above our narrow-minded reactions and choose the most appropriate mindset for a given situation? How can we develop these new capacities in ourselves and in our children?
For more than thirty years, ISHK's programs have been addressing these questions, contributing to some major shifts in public thinking and public policy such as in the recognition of the role of the mind in health. ISHK's efforts have been supported by renowned specialists in medicine, ecology, psychology, and education. Today some of our key programs focus on early education.
