Con Buddha nell'astuccio - D, La Repubblica delle donne

Dharma is an ancient Indian spiritual concept that signifies the underlying order present in nature and life.

Dharma is also a private faith school that provides alternative education situated in the balmy seaside resort of Brighton, in the south east of England.

Inspired by, and informed with, principles of compassion and non-confrontation, its curriculum has encountered immediate success among progressive-thinking parents and their children since it opened to business in the late 1990s.

Mind you, not everybody here is a practicing Buddhist.

What has appealed to hundreds in the course of just a few years is the school's commitment to providing the kids with a high standard of well-being and creative stimuli.

Education, not proselytism;
Spirituality, not religion;
Acceptance, not confrontation.
Dharma school motto.
