No. It is not a religious organization. But the participants of this organization belong to different faith groups as well as those who are agnostics and atheists. The organization respects people of all faiths. It considers one’s faith or lack of any faith to be very personal, which deserves respect.
Absolutely not. It is an organization for educational purposes only. The education mainly stresses how we can become an asset not only for our own loved ones and families, but also for the rest of the society.
It is little bit of both. The efforts are to reach out to people beyond one’s circle of friends of the same faith and ethnicity. It functions as a think-tank in a way where we have social gathering of all diversities and identify the best methods and practices to reach out and bridge the gap between perceptions about anything among diversities.
There are so many. There is lot of emphasis on eliminating ignorance, prejudice, discrimination, racism and xenophobia, repudiating exclusion of any human being, regardless of his or her beliefs or association with any diversity. There is also emphasis on individual spiritual and intellectual advancement. Some topics help us in debunking myths and definitions that stereotype. There are many mental health topics like understanding the terms, such as emotional intelligence and perceptual intelligence, compassion, self-reflection, personal integrity, the smart ways to manage one’s emotions, dealing with ego, jealousy, guilt, distrust, hatred and violence.
ISEEK is not about changing the world; it is about changing ourselves for the better. Every human being is intellectually equipped to change one’s self for the better. Speaking of the desire to change the whole world or believing that it will take several generations to change is totally irrelevant to the benefits of self-improvements that we want to enjoy for our own families and our fellow citizens.
