Vision

A Peace Village (in Switzerland) to facilitate cross-cultural exchange in form of conferences, retreats for yoga and spiritual practices from different traditions and artistic collaborations. This central village will pool participants from AZAHAR centers and partner organizations around the world and include professional training and a scholarship fund. It will act as a refuge for artists, spiritual leaders and peace activists who are refugees and politically persecuted in their own countries. It will be environmentally friendly, largely self-sustaining,a sanctuary for animals and will house people from different generations.
