Young people

"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are."
Carl Jung

We are practising meditators who are interested in effecting change in our world. We are part of a global network of young adults (aged 16–30) across 50 countries - the International Youth Forum of Brahma Kumaris,

We believe that a new way of living ultimately depends upon transforming and uplifting the human spirit. We want to encourage our peers - from all religions, ethnicities and cultures - to take up the challenge of re-creating their inner and outer environments by being deeply in touch with themselves.

We support our peers to develop

  • An awareness of their inner peace and power
  • A moral compass for living
  • The practical spiritual skills and tools for expressing their potential

We work with organisations from all sectors, youth NGOs, government bodies, community and faith groups that want to introduce spiritual skills and values in working with young people.

Come with us on a journey inside to explore, experience and enjoy a precious part of you that remains hidden unless visited. This journey will create pathways for you into a future that is rich with happiness and success.

It takes courage to think differently, see differently and behave differently, yet we believe this will empower us to build new social structures and a promising future for everyone.

Relax – Reconnect - Refresh – Recharge

We all need time away from our regular routines to go deeper inside and discover new aspects of ourselves - time to explore our inner world. Retreats are one way to take time out to relax the body, reconnect with ourselves and recharge our minds. It is an ideal opportunity to be part of a community that embraces deep thinking and enjoy life in ways that are not so easy in our everyday living. What we experience on these retreats for ourselves - personally and with the new friendships gained - helps sustain us when we are back in our hectic professional and active lives.

Create your own poster with the words:

"Happiness is a decision. Choose to be happy. It all begins with an inner smile and sharing that smile with others."

Draw it, paint it or design it on the computer. Make it bright and beautiful and display it somewhere where you will see it every day.

Dadi janki
Quote

…Finally, I mention Dadi Janki, the spiritual leader of the Brahma Kumaris, based on Mount Abu in Rajasthan, who, 20 years ago, when I was in my 50s and she was in her 80s—she is now 103—began showing me, through her love and compassion, that I, like everyone else, had spirit within me. When we act from that connection, it is good for each of us and for all of us. The vision that Dadi shares has inspired values-based educational programmes around the world in schools, with young leaders, and in the Brahma Kumaris institution."

Lord Stone speaking about Dadi Janki in the UK Parliament (House of Lords), responding to the report by the Commission on Religious Education Religion and Worldviews: the way forward, published in September.
