Peace Education Program – An Introduction
Peace Education Program
The Peace Education Program is an innovative series of video-based workshops that help people discover their own inner strength and personal peace. The program gives participants the opportunity to focus and reflect on their own humanity, and their inner resources such as choice, hope, and dignity. Rather than describing or defining personal peace, the program empowers individuals to reach their own understanding. Everyone can benefit, and the program has proven effective in a variety of settings including community centers, youth groups, schools, veterans groups, wellbeing centers, drug rehabilitation facilities, corrections, and many more.
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) provides access to the workshop materials to organizations and volunteers free of charge, making the course readily available to diverse populations in more than 70 countries and in over 30 languages.
Each workshop features video excerpts of renowned author Prem Rawat’s inspiring presentations on one of ten themes: peace, appreciation, inner strength, self-awareness, clarity, understanding, dignity, choice, hope, and contentment. Facilitated reflection time, participant discussions, workbook activities, and reading materials vary the classes, making them fun and adaptable.
The role of the facilitator requires no specific qualifications. TPRF is available to provide any support needed to make the course a success for host organizations and participants alike.
Any individual or organization can apply to TPRF for a free license to offer the course to interested groups.
