The College of Neohumanist Studies (CNS) has evolved out of Prashiksana Matha also popularly known as ”The International School of Social Service” as a necessity to expand the existing curriculum of teachings in Yoga, and Intuitional Science. Prashiksana Matha was originally set up in 1976 to offer an opportunity to those who wanted to devote their lives to self-realization and social service. The college is located in Ydrefors, Sweden in the tranquil natural surroundings of forests and lakes.
At present the college has the following faculties:
1. Faculty of Yoga and Intuitional Science
2. Faculty of Neohumanist Education
3. Faculty of Sustainable Development (in development)
4. Prabhat Samgiita Academy
The curriculum provides academic training to those becoming Yoga and Meditation teachers and/or teachers of Neohumanist Education. CNS also has a collaborative relationship with the Commedia School, an international theater school in Copenhagen.
The summer and early Fall of 2010 saw CNS Sweden come alive with several lively programs. Among them were, the workshop on Neohumanist Education & Culture led by Dr Marcus Bussey; Insights into the Milky Way by Sister Indumati; Homeopathic & Public Speaking workshops conducted by Tony Carlyle and the hosting of 4th Annual Yoga Educators Conference. The power-point presented by Sister Indumati on the Milky Way received an enthusiastic response from all participants. Meanwhile, Sis Jyotiorekha continued with holistic healing sessions at the Integrated Health Centre in Ydrefors. Dr. Shambhushivananda also spoke at the International Womens Center in Stockholm on “Spirituality and Social Responsibility” on September 20, 2010.
