helps people, especially youth, to nurture their minds, bodies and spirits. This starts the journey to get to know the self and willfully mold their own characters. Yoga is a gateway to discover the body and mind connection and improve physical health for mind and spirit wellness.

AGRICULTURE

Urban Gardening
connects the people with their environment and the scientific laws of oneness with our environment. People, especially youth, begin to develop perceptual knowledge of their academic learning and the natural cycle of life and self. From the garden, they learn to honor their spirit, mind and body through conscious choices of what to grow according to the cycle of seasons—-to eat organic healthy and locally grown produce, and to gain self-empowerment through skills and knowledge to grow their own food and control their health and well-being.

EDUCATION

is rooted in perceptual knowledge of self, community and the universal laws and science. Many older Cambodians came from a country that lacked a real education system. The MAYE Center offers a platform through its education classes with a wide range of educational topics. Youth, born or raised here, reach a point in life of self and scientific confirmation of what they are learning in school and start to develop perceptual knowledge through direct experience. They begin to develop connection with their parents and ancestors as they learn the history and cultures and thereby, overall generational gap is reduced. They develop and integrate their cultures (ancestors and their own).
