Through a transformative learning process the GNH Centre offers a unique opportunity to experience GNH principles in daily life and to reflect on how to implement them in a practical way.
Many of us come from organizations that might be described as technocratic, or policy, or research, kind of top down, ‘ we just fix the numbers and the world will be better’. This is quite delusional, I think. Something I’ve begun to realize through the lab … much more so than [before is that] inner transformation is really the ground of societal transformation. Without that, nothing will stick. And arguably without that, nothing is possible.
