We are delighted to offer you this Education without Stress Conference about the scientifically verified Consciousness-Based Education (CBE) and the benefits of CBE for students, staff and schools.

CBE can be implemented easily in any pre-school, primary, secondary or tertiary institution to enrich the standard curriculum, teaching practices and learning environment.

The goal of CBE is to systematically unfold the inner creative potential of every student and create a significant influence of coherence and harmony in the school, community and nation.

450,000 students and staff in 800 schools in 60 countries have taken CBE education.
