The Brahma Kumaris is a world spiritual organization that offers an education in human, moral and spiritual values. To help meet the challenge of change, it initiates dialogue and tries to present a fresh vision of the future. It recognizes the intrinsic goodness of people and teaches meditation to help people discover their inner resources and strengths.
I attended a retreat at their Global Retreat Centre at Nuneham Park near Oxford, England some years ago. The main building was once a stately home - it was built in the 18th century and is set in landscaped gardens overlooking the River Thames - a magnificent building in a beautiful setting. I thoroughly enjoyed the week-end - the retreat was thought provoking, I met some interesting people and I had time to reflect on life.
If you have an open mind on religion and spiritual matters and would like to experience a different way of looking at the world - I'd highly recommend this retreat or one of their several other retreats around the world. You will find more information on their website.
