We live in a world where we can no longer escape from each other’s influences. Most modern societies have lost their understanding of the real needs of people, and humans relate to each other with mutual suspicion.  This course explores the fundamental and universal validity of man, leading you to understand your true identity potential, with mankind as a community in the truest sense of the word.
