Monthly Donation Target

Fundraising for the 2020 Vision Happiness Centre

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Global Vision is to Spread Happiness by creating a Stress-Free, Violence Free Society

We would like you to be part of this incredible Vision, by supporting the Art of Living Foundation Charity in creating “Happiness Centres” all over the UK, starting with our first space in London. We will be renting a space for up to £10,000 per month, and are looking for monthly donations to fund this rent and other costs.

These Happiness Centres will be beautiful beacons of peace, where local people can come to meditate, learn more about how to relieve stressboost energy and well-being and to feel a sense of belongingness; and ultimately to become happier!

We are in the middle of a mental health epidemic here in the UK….by developing these healing spaces, think of how many people we can help to bring back their smile!

All of us have experienced a transformation in our own lives, so we feel compelled to share these proven tools with others, to uplift and transform society. Join us and make a difference in the lives of others!

Our Objectives for the 2020 Vision Happiness Centres

Philanthropic Opportunity

For those interested in uplifting humanity through our shared Human Values, the Philanthropic investment in this centre represents great value for money. Your support provides the following:

  • Promoting and Supporting Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s vision of a stress-free violence free society
  • positive impact on the Lives of 100,000 Londoners, through reducing stress and increasing well-being
  • An iconic venue that leaves a fantastic legacy for future generations to benefit
  • Creating a home and a sense of belongingness for the Art of Living Family
  • Uniting Londoners together, with inner-peace creating outer peace and harmony

Art of Living already has a global presence in 152 countries worldwide. Greater London has a population of 12m people, and London is truly an international City that creates trends that translate across the planet. Our vision is that this centre becomes a world-class model of how we can deliver much-needed solutions to stressful city living. The centre will be run by volunteers, and delivers a great return for local communities. As an example, there will be regular free workshops in Yoga, Relaxation and Meditation and will be a fantastic new service for the communities of London.

How We Will Achieve the 2020 Vision
