Life at IDEAL
We practice methods and exercises in our daily life which we believe help us improve and transform ourselves in order to become useful to the larger community. By being our own topic of research and by striving to work consciously, we believe we can have an impact on our environment individually and collectively.
Our daily life includes the practice of various yogas. For example:
• the yoga of sound through singing
• the yoga of nutrition through the preparation and sharing of meals
• the yoga of light through meditation during sunrise
• breathing exercises, movements, dance (paneurhythmie) ...
These methods are presented to us in the philosophical and spiritual teaching of the Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov. He suggests numerous yogas adapted to the Western lifestyle and he dedicated his life to implementing simple methods of self-transformation.
Community life is an exercise that requires going beyond the differences dividing us to find what unites us. It is a lifestyle which encourages exchanges and the sharing of skills, talents and tasks. It also allows for shared living spaces, production and preparation of food, as well as joint resources and services resulting in a lighter environmental footprint. The goals we pursue and our experience over the past twenty years contribute to the search for solutions to current economic and environmental challenges we all face as a society.
