Art of Living wants to help. One of the key areas the foundation has been involved all over the world is bringing peace and trauma relief to those affected by natural or man-made calamities (examples are Iraq, Kosovo, 9/11, Katrina, etc. -- you can read more at www.iahv.org) . We are planning to do our bit for the people affected by the oil spill by conducting free stress reduction courses for the affected people.
We are requesting that everyone who supports this effort, contact community organizations and government organizations to help us plan this initiative. We expect that there will be approximately 20 - 30 volunteers from Art of Living coming to New Orleans in August to support this effort. If you know of someone who can help us organize these courses, help us in getting in touch with them. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
