SVM Global Initiative
Life Skills classes are presented with the intention of offering a dogma-free universal spiritualism as portrayed in Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet”. A poetic representation of the many aspects of life, each class is designed to teach each participant how to successfully maneuver through life and living to obtain A POSITIVE OUTCOME IN AS MANY SITUATIONS AS POSSIBLE. Powerful or meek, wealthy or poor, full of life or barely living; we are innately social creatures who need to know ourselves before we can expect to be successful when relating to and communicating with those around us.
