Peace Education Program – An Introduction
Peace Education Program
The Peace Education Program consists of several 10-session courses that explore the meaning of personal peace, each helping participants discover their own inner resources to live more fulfilling lives. The sessions focus on 10 different themes: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-Awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
The core material for each theme is a selection of video excerpts from Prem Rawat’s talks. Sessions also include facilitated reflection time, participant discussion, and workbook learning. The interactive, multimedia workshops are non-religious and non-sectarian, and have been proven to benefit diverse groups of people in over 80 countries.
In addition to the resources on this website, the Help Desk is available to answer any questions you may have about the program: firstname.lastname@example.org
