Art of Living is founded on the idea that everyone has intuitive abilities, but that they are often blocked. The founders believe that children and adolescents, in particular, can easily rediscover their intuition and that people who do so are more creative and committed.
The organisation runs a programme called the ‘Intuition Process’ for children and young people between 8 and 18. It is undertaken for 2½ hours for two days. The course starts with meditation, so that the children learn to gain inner peace. They are then blindfolded and attempt to guess colours, shapes or numbers, and finally to read texts through their mind’s eye. These tasks are said to help the children to learn to listen to their inner voices instead of their expectations. The aim is to enhance the children’s intuition, strengthen their self-confidence, promote attentiveness and consideration of other people’s needs, as well as creativity and intelligence.
