Serving Hundreds of Thousands In Over 200 Countries
True fellowship among men must be based upon a concern that is universal.
It is not the private interests of the individual that create lasting fellowship
among men, but rather the goals of humanity. That is why it is said that fellowship
with men in the open succeeds. If unity of this kind prevails, even difficult and
dangerous tasks, such as crossing the great water, can be accomplished.
On the mountain, a tree:
The image of DEVELOPMENT
Thus the superior man abides in dignity and virtue
In order to improve the mores.

InnerPeaceFellowship.org is the web site of an informal fellowship of volunteers, and most of us have been practicing mantra meditation now for over 40 years. Our purpose is to help increase inner peace, to educate about non-divisive beliefs, and to build fellowship based on the universal concerns of all humanity. To those ends we operate web sites that are used by hundreds of thousands of people in over 200 countries.
Many of us grew up in the traditional western churches of our families and left those churches in search of other ways of gaining inner peace. In the decades that followed we took psychedelics, studied eastern religions, listened to holy men, lived with saints, and spent considerable time alone in high, remote mountains.
We met in the 1970s when we came together to form a community of several thousand to explore inner peace. Some of us had careers and raised families while meditating two to four hours every day. Others went into reclusion and continue to meditate about 6 hours every day. We are friends and neighbors who have been sharing one another's successes and mistakes for a lifetime. Our community continues to experiment, to learn and to thrive.
If you are living the approaches on this site, then you already belong to our fellowship. If you are working to form a group around these approaches, email us → and we will provide whatever assistance we can.
