 About IHCMD

The Institute for Human Conceptual and Mental Development (IHCMD) is a small, independent, non-profit organization that advocates, promotes and facilitates understanding and managing existence and development from the ground up and from the inside out. It advocates understanding and managing existence and development at a fundamental level, in their essence, in depth and detail, in a comprehensive way that is differentiated but remains integrated, connected and related. It advocates understanding and managing existence and development from the ground up, at the level of the natural conditions of existence which, in the first instance, define and govern human existence and development. It advocates understanding and managing existence and development from the inside, from within the mind and mental existence, where we consciously exist and act, where we experience, become aware and must consider the conditions of existence, where individually we are in charge and in control, where we must actively be engaged, and take responsibility for what takes place and what we do.

The Institute was set up in early 1990 to investigate the human causes behind the global problems - persisting and growing cultural, religious, racial, political, social, economic-financial, environmental, interpersonal and individual problems, difficulties, crises, conflicts and confrontations - we face today. The questions guiding the work of the Institute are: What is it about us human beings that makes us understand and manage ourselves, human existence and development in the harmful, destructive and counterproductive way we do? How as a species in our own self-development and growth did we get to where we find ourselves today and the problems, difficulties and crises we create and we face? How did we get to understand and manage ourselves, our existence and development, in the way we do? What is the direction of the answers and solutions, the direction we need to take in our own development, in conceptual and mental self-development and growth, to understand and manage ourselves, human existence and development in sustainable, secure and peaceful ways?

The Institute, within this context and to this end, undertakes research and study, provides lectures, presentations, courses and workshops, and offers consulting and coaching, education and training in development, change and transformation from the ground up and from the inside out. The focus and direction is on developing the necessary conceptual foundation and mental capacity; developing, exercising and practicing the necessary knowledge and understanding, our natural mental potential, individual natural mental powers and abilities, necessary mental skills and practices, and engaging in the required mental work and effort; establishing the necessary internal mental conditions, in everything we do and we engage in, before engaging and dealing with external conditions, with others and the world around us, with nature and the natural environment.
