You may have heard that “peace” (or happiness) is an inside job. To a very large extent this is true, and there are methods and practices that can help us, and others, to do this job well! Peace can be cultivated through mindfulness & meditation, healthy communication, therapy, and spiritual/faith practices- to name a few.
These are among the many resources that you may utilize yourself while also promoting them in your school, workplace, or larger community. Such practices can lead to healthier and happier living and relating, and a greater capacity to “lead by example” in bringing about the more peaceful world we seek.
The value of “Being the Peace” in our own hearts, minds and actions is a core tenet to building peace in the world. From how we engage in our social and political activism, to encouraging a more peaceful and healthy approach to political discourse (among politicians and advocates alike), we aim to bring awareness and tools to this important peace building approach.
