Subud is an association of people from different religions, beliefs, nationalities and cultures. Its members experience a direct contact between themselves and the Great Life Force, or the power of God. This experience, which we call latihan kejiwaan, is received in the form of spontaneous movements or understandings that are unique for each person. It is not learned or taught, but is something natural, arising within us.
Subud has no theories or dogma, no teachers, no leaders. All people are welcome and can share this experience to discover their own true self and human potential through the inner guidance of the latihan.
