The month of December was mainly dedicated to the preparation of a unique and special event that, after receiving the last confirmation, we are happy and honored to share with you: the Alice Project managed to organize an event for middle and high schools with HH Dalai Lama on January 25, 2018 in Bodhgaya. We have kept silence until today due to the fact that receiving confirmation from HH’s offices is extremely rare: of the dozens of requests in Bodhgaya only ours has been accepted. The event will focus on “Education for Universal Ethics” and will consist of two hours of HH teaching to 20,000 students from Gaya, Bodhgaya and neighboring villages. Important is the presence of a large number of government schools and the Head of Education for Bihar: it will be an opportunity to raise awareness of our proposal at government level and to stimulate collaboration for the future.
Valentino will open the event with a speech with which he will present the results of educational research and methodology on non-dualistic ethics: an absolute innovation with respect to the approach of ethics proposed by other prestigious interlocutors. Our President, the whole staff and Valentino himself, specially back from France, are dedicated to working incessantly for the success of this exceptional event. Valentino is completing a manual for teachers to advise them on a possible introspective and cognitive path of the students. A manual summary of what has been proposed in Alice schools for decades. It will be exhibited along with more than 60 books written by Valentino in these years and delivered to HH as the “conclusion” of a work solicited and recommended to Valentino almost thirty years ago by Dalai Lama himself. We hope that this event will highlights the Alice Project and intensify relations with institutions, authorities and others projects.
