Living New Workshops
Living New Workshops create opportunities for people to find their unique strength and to become proactive contributors to society.
In our busy, competitive and ever-changing modern society, it can be difficult to live freely and authentically. However, if we can reconnect with our true selves, with one another and with all life, and learn to appreciate our oneness in diversity, our personal and collective future could look quite different than the future we now see in front of us.
This experiential workshop program is facilitated by the staff members of the Goi Peace Foundation, offering space for creativity and deep dialogue among the participants. It is open to all people who wish to discover their highest potential, explore sustainable lifestyles, connect with diverse people, and become a co-creator of a better future for all.

What workshop participants are saying
Living New Open Café participants
- What I believed was my weak point was actually my strength. I discovered that it was just a matter of my perception.
- I’m grateful to have found out that many people shared my thoughts, even if we seemed different.
- I used to think I could change only if my society changed, but now I am convinced that if I change, my society will change.
- I felt accepted by others through our deep dialogues. I felt something emerging in me, and it is up to me to put it into action.
- Just participating in this one-day workshop gave me the spark for self-transformation.
- I realized I am a piece of a puzzle of this world. We are all different pieces, and if we miss one piece, the world will not be complete.
