About Us

“PRÓ-VIDA was born with the intent of teaching, integrating man to the Cosmic Environment. Integrating man of all religions, of all races, of all creeds. There was born PRÓ-VIDA with the intent of leading each one to the happiness they can have, as long as their mental properties are cultivated.”
Dr. Celso Charuri
December 19, 1980

PRÓ-VIDA is a philosophical movement founded in Brazil in 1978 by Dr. Celso Charuri, a physician and a philosopher, with one proposition: to build a much better world, a world of peace. For him, the path is to change the man, because only a much better man can change the environment he lives in and make it dignified, harmonic and fraternal.

This change in people takes place through the expansion of consciousness, a process which is accomplished in a program composed of nine levels and in complementary activities such as lectures and cultural events, parapsychological exercises, and research conducted at the Laboratory department. They combine millenary knowledge and techniques, which are capable of leading human beings to the development of their mental capabilities.

Currently, PRÓ-VIDA is present in various cities and countries. At its centers and clubs, the integration between the differences and the different is valued, creating a favorable environment for individual and social refinement.

As a result, and as an example of this new world, PRÓ-VIDA performs actions of social responsibility through the General Center for the Tithe department, founded in 1979, and its affiliates. Over these years, the General Center for the Tithe has made approximately 12 thousand donations and built 13 vocational schools.

“(...) man is a product of the environment. We say this is right: man is a product of the environment. And we also say the following is correct: the environment is a product of Man. The difference, as you can see, is in the “M”. The man who is a product of the environment is a small man. A big Man builds his environment, and the environment becomes his product.

This modification can only be made with the exchange of “M”s, in other words, transforming the individual, removing the barriers from him. Not the barriers that come from the outside; the barriers that come from within. That's why we say that we are not for revolution – revolution. We are for evolution. It becomes very clear, right? We are for evolution. This is how PRÓ-VIDA thinks.”
