We now open for people at all ages to taste INNER PEACE and an online SELF-DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. Moreover, for those ages between 21-30 years old who register before 31 August 2009 will have a special privilege to seek for scholarship to join the international conference in Thailand in February 2010.
