    "A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~ Confucius"

    The fellowship is not available to apply for at the moment.

    We live in a world which is often chaotic and very demanding. Our endless struggle in between professional growth, academic success and personal responsibilities is keeping us restless and stressful. Therefore it is important to stop for a moment in order to truly understand and discover our own selves. Self-discovery is one of the most important steps for us to realize our full potential, and for us to know how to live successful and happy lives.

    Happy people contribute more to their communities, leading to more sustainable communities. Happy people also contribute more to create a peaceful environment. That’s why we believe in the idea called PIPO, “Peace In + Peace Out = Sustainable World Peace”

    Oceania Self-Discovery Camp will bring together a group of young people from all Oceanian countries who are interested in learning and exploring self-development as a primary means to discovering their own true self, and making this world a better place to live in.

    We will incorporate workshops and lectures including:

    • Sustainability
    • Stress Management
    • Work-Life Balance
    • Conflict Prevention & Resolution
    • Peace Promotion
    • Relationships
    • Mindfulness

    The aim of these activities is to promote individuals in the evolvement towards awareness and responsible handling of their personal, situational power. In the end, this camp aims to promote a culture of peace, self-discovery, and youth empowerment through the means of self-development and meditation. Encompassing heartfelt, caring consideration of others, and the aware capability to ensure that no suffering is fostered, the individual is supported to embody the qualities of meditation.

    This camp will be the first of its kind in the Oceanian countries to bridge the gap between inner peace and social empowerment, leading to transformational and peaceful activism.
