group of North American people began to work closely
with Murat Yagan in 1975. The transmission of the essence
of the teaching of Ahmsta Kebzeh, including its practical

federally registered in Canada in 1990. The departments

The Kebzeh Foundation arrives at decisions through consensus.
The process was adopted from the Kebzeh Tradition. Each
committee or department has a coordinator or head, who
assumes responsibility for the functioning of that area.
Within the Kebzeh Tradition it is not allowed to receive
money for the Teaching. The Teaching has always been
given freely and no price can be put on it. For example,
the Curriculum study course does have a fee but it is
to cover the production costs only, not for the Teaching
itself. Ninety-five percent of all the work done is
volunteer with no financial compensation given.
We make everything available
to those who sincerely seek, but we do not attempt to
convince or encourage anyone to join us or to stay.
People come and go as they wish. It is forbidden to
interfere with anyone's free will. We do not seek to
convert, but to complete.
