About Zaltho / Our Goals

The Zaltho Foundation, a spiritually based non-profit committed to ending violence by promoting mindfulness and positive change within individuals, was founded by Claude AnShin Thomas in 1994.


It was through the inspiration, the engagement, and the skill of Zachary Allen Thomas that the Zaltho Foundation began to have, and maintain, an online presence. For his years of dedicated service we remain forever thankful.

In Gratitude: Claude AnShin Thomas, Spiritual Advisor and The Board of Directors, The Zaltho Foundation, Inc.
