Members of the International Brain Education Association (IBREA) laced up their sneakers on February 21 to help raise money for the Kaiser Permanente Great Aloha Run, benefiting nonprofit organizations and charities throughout Hawaii.
IBREA, founded by philosopher Ilchi Lee to promote peace and healing prayer, participates in events such as the Great Aloha Run in an effort to unify mankind and spread knowledge about the power of love and self-actualization.
“My vision is to make the earth a more peaceful, happy and healthy place by creating 100 million Earth Citizens—people who know that the earth and our brains are the common denominator among all people who seek peace and harmony," Lee said.
It is Lee's vision that one day the people of Earth will view their loyalty to all of mankind and citizenry of the planet as being paramount to defining themselves in terms of race, religion or nationality.
Through healing prayer and meditation, Lee believes that every individual has the ability to control their brains in a way that allows them to spread their love and enlightenment throughout humanity.
