Welcome to the International Institute of Humanization

Hi there!

Good you found us!

We believe that every human being has a purpose in life and the power and quality that is necessary to achieve this purpose. Because of our culture and educational systems the majority of mankind loses sight of this. The International Institute of Humanization is a non-profit foundation that distributes the knowledge of looking inward in order to finding your mission, power and quality, looking outward to see human behaviour for what it is and gives tools for intercultural communication, building trust, listening without prejudice, leadership and entrepreneurship. We also try to bring the knowledge and wisdom of the mature to the young.

What drives us

Why do we behave so badly towards each other? That is the question we keep asking ourselves. We believe that human rights are important: they are there to protect individuals in a social context so they are not limited by others to achieve full expression of their inner strengths and qualities while respecting an others right to do the same.

Many of the educational systems in the Western World are still based on values and assumptions going back 1800’s: to create docile citizens!
It is time we start teaching that each human being has inner strength and qualities. And a purpose to fulfil. And we take this very seriously.
The only way to truly become a global society is that each individual has the opportunity to look inside. To find their power and choose or find what they want to bring to the world. And then to learn how to do that. In a way not to harm others and receive acknowledgement and respect for their own uniqueness.

We believe that everyone has a great potential
We believe that everyone can learn of this
We believe that each of us has something to contribute to the world
We believe that this can be done in harmony with other human beings.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 1.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

After thirty years of searching we have found a map to the inner world of human beings. This map seems to be the origin of the four levels of perception and as we discovered a unconscious source and basis for psychology, psychiatry, humanism, Christianity and many more religions. From my perspective, the map called INNER LANDSCAPE, is a gift that needs to be shared to the whole world. It is part of who we are and has the depth and breadth to be of help in understanding full human nature. It is my personal promise that I will keep on working to discover more about the INNER LANDSCAPE and will keep sharing what I will discover in the future. I do not care how long it takes, how many people like it or hate it. The sharing of the INNER LANDSCAPE is of utmost importance to mankind, if we ever want to achieve a global society.
Authentic individuals who are powerful and aware, that think in terms of us instead of me, myself and I. How many? Maybe three hundred million is enough critical mass for the whole world to adapt thinking in terms of we. Or one hundred leaders with the power of Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Ghandi. We choose the English language to communicate the knowledge and wisdom we found thus attempting to reach as many as possible.
