Peace Brain Education for Your Community“I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.” President Dwight Eisenhower
The core of our society is community. We are being called to create community, to know our neighbors, to become empowered to build connections with each other that are needed to maintain a peaceful world. It may not be simple or easy - but Peace demands unity and actions that support inter-related and inter-active communities.
Your Organization, Group or NeighborhoodIt is so important to promote Peace in our neighborhoods and communities. Consider planting a Peace Pole or creating a Peace Wall in your neighborhood or at your place of work. Then, teach peace curricula around that. Our community workshops can take many forms.
Teaching peace concepts, tools, and games to children can give them a framework from which to think, speak, and act, and to create a new world using a peaceful mindset. Adults classes are also useful to bring these peace principles into the workplace, relationships, and one's inner self. The classes cover peace principles such as unity, cooperation, and justice, and virtues such as honesty, generosity, respect, service, trustworthiness, and more.
An example of our programs: Tourism For Peace worked with PAPY (Performing Arts Program for Youth) in Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 to assist the youth in creating, writing, and performing a Play on Peace. The troop of over 20 youth, ages 10 to 24, experienced three of our Peace Workshops, and then chose which specific topics they wished to portray in dramatic format - and wrote their own play! PAPY performed excerpts of this Peace Play at the Trail of Dreams World Peace Walk event that was held in April 2009. PAPY Director was Ms. Hilda Willis. If your youth group would also like to create a Peace Play, or explore concepts of Peace, please let us know!
Dr. Lash can work with your neighborhood to create classes that work best for its organizations and families. Let us customize a Peace Brain Education package for you and your community!
