Jas Jassal, BEM Uses Sports for Youth Education, Engagement and Empowerment

Jas Jassal, BEMJas Jassal, BEM is the Co-founder of the Asian Cricket Awards, a program with a purpose to celebrate the success of the British South Asian community within the cricket industry. This sponsor-driven initiative is supported by the governing bodies of UK sport and provides a positive platform to increase participation and representation from an existing and future generation. The journey of these nominees is highlighted and awareness of industry pathways communicated.

Mr. Jassal was recognised in 2014 amongst the Queens New Year Honours list for services rendered to charitable and community service providers with the British Empire Medal. He serves as a positive role model for people of all ages from all communities. Mr. Jassal puts in nearly seven-hundred voluntary hours each year, while balancing his day job and family life. This in itself is an amazing amount of dedication from an individual who clearly wants to change the landscape for diversity in sport. As Vice-Chairman of Concorde Rangers FC, he has assisted the club in its endeavors, and the West Middlesex and Hayes League in the forging of a partnership with the Queens Park Rangers Community Trust with the aim of raising standards and increasing participation in football in those sections of the community that are possibly under-represented in the game. One aspect of the partnership between the West Middlesex and Hayes League and QPR is the community development centre designed to raise the level of grassroots football and allow teenagers looking to break into coaching access to mentoring from QPR coaches.

Jas Jassal inspires others through volunteer servicesMr. Jassal was recently named trustee of the Hillingdon Community Trust. This volunteer role will allow him to provide grants to important equality and engagement initiatives in the Hillingdon Borough. His position will serve to ensure grants are provided to improve the quality of life in this region. In working with the Middlesex FA, Mr. Jassal has helped drive provision of coaching and refereeing courses locally while also encouraging young people to get into volunteering. He hopes to become an ambassador promoting volunteering to the masses. This commitment to volunteering has resulted in Mr. Jassal being awarded many honours for making a valuable contribution. His project work has impacted many lives positively and had an influence on his own children, who understand the values associated with volunteering. Both Mr. Jassal’s sons are football coaches. His eldest son was a volunteer at the Olympic Park; at a care home for the elderly and at the West Middlesex Hospital. His youngest son recently completed his referee’s accreditation and is an FA referee. Serving as volunteers has aided his childrens’ development and positively shaped their learning and behavior, gearing them up for adulthood.

Mr. Jassal has become revered for his commitment to volunteering and helping people. He personifies the importance of supporting one’s community through volunteer initiatives, and he pushes to share these experiences with the next generation. Working selflessly with others throughout his community in an effort to foster a better nation drives Mr. Jassal to continue serving as a volunteer, build and maintain grassroots movements, and promote the values that he genuinely cares about.

Asian Cricket AwardsOutside of football, Mr. Jassal has supported many charities through fundraising and awareness campaigns. These include British Airways Flying Start, a partnership with Comic Relief, where he has helped mentor young apprentices to organise fundraising football tournaments and encouraged colleague engagement through delivering road-shows. He recently supported a national campaign to increase Asian bone marrow donors on the stem-cell register. Recruitment drives organised by the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, Delete Blood Cancer, Jaskomal and Rik Basra Foundations and Sunny Bains, father of Gaurav Bains, lead to a 1200% increase in Asian donors on the bone marrow register.

International Peace Day took place on September 21st; Mr. Jassal supported the organisation’s global football campaign ‘One Day One Goal’ helping to raise much needed awareness of promoting peace across the world by using the power of football to bring nations and communities together. His strong network at grassroots allowed many football matches to be dedicated to peace day.

Having been a volunteer for more than ten years, Mr. Jassal is still as excited about volunteering today as he was all those years ago. If it’s to do with grass roots or charity, Mr. Jassal is the first to lend his support. He is widely respected and acknowledged amongst his peers at the charities and trusts for his passion and dedication. He is also a champion for Include Me Too, a charitable organization that is focused on raising awareness of disability within the BME community, and providing support.

Mr. Jassal is currently developing a project involving hundreds of community coaches aiming to deliver social education and development to the under-privileged in third world countries. Delivery targets include developing and empowering youth leaders to help inspire others and provide sustainability.

Mr. Jassal has been awarded a number of honours, including the British Empire Medal, selection to be the Olympic Torchbearer in 2012, and the title of FA Volunteer of the Year in 2012 for Middlesex County and region of London. He was also named British Airways Flying Start Volunteer of the Year 2012, and a recipient of the British Airways Community Award in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Mr. Jassal is passionate about his community, volunteering, inclusion, education and development, having spent ten years championing best practices. He uses sport as the vehicle to deliver education and development, which empowers young people to become role models and leaders within their own community. They can then go on to inspire others.

Dr. Ariel found the cause of suffering and developed a cure to help end suffering on Earth

MALIBU, CA, August 25, 2013, Aurora Juliana Ariel, Founder, Chairwoman, and CEO of the Institute of AdvancedDr. Aurora Juliana Ariel, PhD Healing, TheQuest University, and AEOS, has been recognized by Worldwide Who’s Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in the Human Potential Movement through years of pioneering work in the field of psychology resulting in landmark discoveries and tools to heal and ailing humanity.

#1 best selling author, Creator of TheQuest, and award-winning author of the Earth 2012-33 series, Dr. Ariel earned a Ph.D. in psychology from Greenwich University with 4.0 GPA, a M.A. in psychology through the University of Santa Monica, graduating with honors, a B.A. in Psychology through Honolulu University, and holds over 38 certificates in advanced healing modalities. She has released 34 music, books, and audio CDs since 2008 through her multimedia production company, AEOS: 7 books (co-author of 2 others), 11 life transforming audio CDs and 16 music CDs, with much more to come.

ariel, aurora juliana logo2After years of dedicated research and work to find the cause of suffering and a cure, Dr. Ariel founded the Institute of Advanced Healing, a non-profit organization in 2000. Her research directly in the human psyche culminated in her discovery that the unconscious holds the key to understanding humanity’s true potential. One of her landmark discoveries was finding that subconscious programs are the cause of all adverse conditions, blocking an individual’s full potential from being realized. By systematically isolating each subconscious component, applying TheQuest healing technology, Dr. Ariel found she was able to reprogram patterns so people could live healthier happier lives. The effects are life changing. She has successfully worked with youth at risk, addicts, abusers and the abused, people with serious illnesses, including mental conditions, PTSD, and trauma, and a host of dysfunctional personality traits and life conditions with tremendous results. After years of miraculous results from this work, she is dedicated to bringing out the principles and practice of TheQuest worldwide. Her dream is that her life’s work can change lives throughout the planet. Once individuals are restored to their innate identity, they are free to fulfill their highest potential. As Dr. Ariel puts it, “When you heal your life, you change your destiny.”

Institute of Advanced HealingShe developed TheQuest Self Healing System (book, audio CD and healing journal) as an essential element in rehabilitation models for abused women, youth at risk, addicts, prisoners, veterans with PTSD, and individuals with brain chemistry disorders (mental illness). She believes the stigma of mental illness will be gone in 10 years, once people understand brain chemistry imbalances can be healed by the advances she (and other) pioneering doctors have made in the field of Neuroscience.

Numerous cutting edge programs are also available to the public, including her Total Life Transformation, Miracle Weight Loss, Addiction Release, After Rehab, Brain Chemistry Balance, Relationship Healing, and Women’s Empowerment programs. Understanding how quickly lives can be restored and potentials actualized when applying TheQuest self-healing technology, she released her groundbreaking book, TheQuest: Heal Your Life, Change Your Destiny worldwide Christmas 2009. She then began offering the Ebook FREE forever via her websites, so that it could reach everyone in need of healing regardless of their financial situation.

Dr. Ariel also developed 7 level courses through TheQuest University, IOAH’s sister division for the layperson as well as health care professionals. She is now creating a Virtual School with ‘live classrooms’ available to students around the world. Graduates of TheQuest Life Coach and Counselor Certification Course will be supported to serve their communities worldwide with chapters in their respective areas similar to the model chapter Dr. Ariel created in Aspen, Colorado in 2005, providing counseling, coaching, support groups, classes, community outreach and services.

The Institute of Advanced Healing is currently seeking funding to set up its international headquarters to host many of her cutting edge programs, advanced Health Center, launch TheQuest University’s virtual school and the first pilot programs to showcase how TheQuest rehabilitation models can change many conditions once thought incurable.

Born into a lineage of entrepreneurs, Dr. Ariel attributes her success to her inner drive and passion to help others, which ignited in her teens when her mother became severely ill. She has headed her own companies since her twenties including a seafood distribution company with products in all major supermarket chains (Safeway, Foodland, Buttreys and Star) spanning 5 states in the Northwest at 24, sharing her father’s global vision and pioneering spirit. A pioneer in shrimp farming, he also became one of the top distributors of seafood in the world with companies in 5 countries. Her grandfather was a doctor and stockbroker in Beverly Hills, California. She also takes after both her grandmothers who loved their gardens, culinary arts, and their families.

A dedicated mother of four and grandmother of three, Aurora’s youthfulness, health, vitality, and passion for life comes from applying the Optimum Health and Lifestyle Programs she provides for others. “TheQuest,” she says, “has been a continual ally, helping her through the most difficult challenges.” She has been the proving ground for her life’s work, the results of which gave her a love for helping transform the lives of others. She enjoys spending her free time in nature, hiking, bicycling, skiing, snorkeling with dolphins and turtles amidst beautiful coral gardens, whale watching, traveling to exotic locations, exploring ancient sites, enjoying other cultures, cultural events, concerts and films, and healthy international cuisine.

Dr. Ariel has garnered a reputation of distinction over the course of an illustrious career, earning the following awards and accolades for her outstanding achievements:

Number One Bestselling Author (2012)

Visionary Award for her First Book, “Earth 2012-33: The Ultimate Quest, How to Find Peace in a World of Chaos.” (2009)
