Peace Education Program – An Introduction
Peace Education Program
The Peace Education Program (PEP) consists of 10 sessions, each focusing on a particular theme. These customized, interactive workshops are non-religious and non-sectarian. The content of each theme is based on excerpts from Prem Rawat’s international talks. The themes are: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-Awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
There are currently 2 stand-alone programs, and you can choose which course to start with. They are not sequential. Here are the unique aspects of each program:
PEP 1: Each DVD / session is 1 hour in length. It includes short and longer videos and five animated shorts. There are two Reflection times included in each session, which can be used at the facilitator’s discretion.
PEP 2: Each session is approximately 35 minutes in length, and there are two sessions on each DVD. PEP 2 is suitable for audiences of all ages, including young people. This program is ideal for people who have difficulty concentrating for longer periods of time, such as the ill, elderly, and those in a rehabilitation center. There are two designated reflection times per session. PEP 2 also includes some media interviews with Prem Rawat.
PEP 3: PEP 3 is in development; the date of the rollout is not yet confirmed. There will be an announcement on this page as soon as it is available. Please check back here periodically for updates.
