    Name: PROUT Research Institute of Venezuela
    Email: maheshvarananda@prout.org.ve

    Description: The PROUT Research Institute offers a supportive environment for research. We promote generating and sharing knowledge in the social sciences, host conferences and educational workshops, and publish the work of our visitors. The Institute also has university contacts in Venezuela and internationally.

    The director of the PROUT Institute is Dada Maheshvarananda, a yoga monk for 35 years, a teacher of yoga and meditation, and the author of After Capitalism: Economic Democracy in Action. His book, and the PROUT Institute, promote a post-capitalist social vision elaborated by the 20th century Indian spiritual master P.R. Sarkar (1922-1990). With our roots in the yogic tradition, we offer daily yoga classes, and for those interested in spirituality, we practice and teach meditation. Our community is open to people of all religious traditions, and we encourage the connection between spirituality and social change in any religious tradition.

    PROUT is also a safe and comfortable environment for foreigners living in Venezuela. We are located in the Quinta PROUT, a large, quiet house with a beautiful garden, nutritious vegetarian food, stimulating conversations, WI-FI, and many contacts in the community. A mix of Venezuelans and international volunteers live here, usually about five to ten, with occasional visitors. Our house is a great place to improve Spanish language skills and be introduced to a new country.

    If you are interested in visiting the PROUT Research Institute of Venezuela, find more information at www.priven.org or contact us at ivip@prout.org.
