It is founded between the members of the present statutes an association governed by the law of July 1, 1901 and the decree of August 16, 1901 in France, under the title of: Akhamani
This association has three purposes:
First, to help ancestral people in remote areas, and more or less isolated communities of the world, while respecting their different visions of the world, their traditional wisdom, and their way of life.

Second, to provide a structure and a platform for the Ancestral leaders and practitioners of the above-mentioned communities, to share their ancestral stories, practices, and techniques, with the aim of developing, collectively, a more conscious, sustainable, and free world. .
Thirdly, to help participants in our activities to become familiar with the ancestral philosophies of the world by promoting the traditional knowledge of these ancestral people as an important contribution to development and human well-being. The goal is to introduce various practices that motivate, guide, and support self-development, well-being, mindfulness, and energy techniques.
The association aims to combine these three objectives in a holistic approach.
