"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit".
For the past two decades the Coudert Institute has, in a non-political manner, earned a reputation for driving meaningful change. Coudert Institute programming, led by global visionaries at the forefront of the arts, the environment, music, science, literature and international affairs, is skillfully tailored to engage our audiences at the highest level. Through civil dialogue, we tackle the questions of our time. Stay curious with us...
"We are not a one-philosophy institute."
Under the counsel of the Coudert Institute Board Of Directors, Dale Coudert's eponymous organization takes considerable pride in being both non-partisan and non-ideological. Mrs. Coudert emphasizes, "At a time when most policy groups and think-tanks share preconceived agendas and seek mainly to document already arrived at conclusions, we welcome open dialogue and diverse opinions as the best way to reach thoughtful conclusions. This approach in turn helps our members make more meaningful contributions locally, nationally, and globally."
The institute's programs frequently target categories of national and international importance, including programs offering music and other art forms. The institute has conducted seminars on diverse and delicate subjects such as:
The Psychology of Carl Jung
Man's Search for Meaning
The Media's Public Interest Responsibilities
The War on Terror
The Effects of Genetics and Medicine in the 21st Century
