“The tasks made me reflect and learn. The information pack provided opportunities for extra reading and research and for us to develop our skills further. The facilitators were really good – very warm, friendly and respectful”

Nine Month Programme

From our extensive experience working with diverse groups, we developed a unique approach to peace that recognises:

  • our fundamental interrelatedness to each other and to the earth
  • the need to welcome the challenges and opportunities of diversity
  • conflict as a means to grow and change
  • collaboration and co-creation as necessary to integrate our differences for the common good
  • the systemic nature of rising global crises
  • the inner dimension of change making
