The key to true peace and happiness in the world lies no further than in our own hearts and minds.
Shiwa, named after the Tibetan word for “peace,” is a non-profit charitable organization, whose purpose is to assist in the development of genuine compassion and wisdom in the world. Shiwa will help to nurture the natural inborn potential for peace and happiness which is present in all of us.
Shiwa provides a non-denominational facility where participants may attend teachings, classes, and seminars on a variety of topics related to personal and community development. The facility provides a location for spiritual growth through teachings, meditation and quiet reflection away from the distractions of the everyday world. At Shiwa, our wish is to help all people in realizing and following a path towards unlimited compassion, deep understanding, and true happiness.
