Welcome to Meaningful World!

The Association for Trauma Outreach and Prevention (ATOP) MeaningfulWorld is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) affiliated with the United Nations Department of Global Communication. Our mission is to foster a peaceful, meaningful, and just world. We are a leader in the training of humanitarian outreach professionals, with over three decades of response to global and local disasters. MeaningfulWorld offers mental health education programs and workshops focusing on empowerment, stress management, time management, creating a healthy workplace, preventing burnouts, mindfulness, resolving conflicts peacefully, Emotional Intelligence, and meaning-making. In addition, our Humanitarian Outreach Teams have helped rehabilitate survivors of traumatic events in over 48 countries and 26 states in the U.S.A. We help transform tragedy and trauma into healing and meaning-making through post traumatic growth, mindfulness, and mind-body-eco-spirit health to provide relief and restoration to those traumatized, and to those treating traumatized populations.

ATOP MeaningfulWorld is dedicated to fostering a meaningful, peaceful, and just world in which every individual enjoys physical, emotional, mental, social, financial, ecological, and spiritual well-being. A sense of meaning, peace, and justice, although unique to each individual, is achieved through a transformative journey that integrates knowledge and experience with a sense of responsibility, reflection, and service. This transformative process is also attained through fostering healthy relationships that nurture open, honest, and transparent communication, insight into forgiveness, love and spiritual connection, and active collaborations and service.

ATOP MeaningfulWorld facilitates this journey by providing lectures, networking, outreach to communities, local and global humanitarian outreach programs, research and publications, and media engagements. These services are provided in a peaceful atmosphere of acceptance, respect, compassion, loving kindness, and empathy. We promote state-of-the-art scientific theories about peace, forgiveness, and consciousness raising. We offer internships, leadership positions, post-graduate Fellowships at the United Nations, and Ambassadorships.

7-Steps for Practicing Forgiveness

Good intentions are no longer enough. I wanted to support humanity in my own way. Meaningful World was a natural way for me to help the victims of tsunami.

So many systems have failed us and as we transition from failed models, attitudes and behaviors that are polarizing, destructive and failing all around us I could not just sit back, be overwhelmed and do nothing… I am doing something with Meaningful World.

Meaningful World cultivates well-being, relatedness, a deep awareness and understanding how to elevate some of the world's suffering. Our choices impact all living systems and I choose to be an agent of good.
