FAQ question: 

You often cooperate with the International Association for Human Values. What is the connection between the two organizations?

FAQ answer: 

The Art of Living closely cooperates with the International Association for Human Values; both organizations being founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. As a sister organization, co-operation often takes the practical form of supporting one another in a country where for example, the Art of Living has established a larger organization or vice-versa.

The International Association for Human Values works in five main areas:

  • Rural development and socio-economic progress
  • Human values-based education
  • Conflict management through dialogue
  • Humanitarian relief and post-disaster rehabilitation/reconstruction
  • Ethics in business

Since providing training courses is a large part of the Art of Living’s activities, co-operation on humanitarian projects frequently takes the form of providing volunteer trainers for trauma relief programs or social rehabilitation programs.
