CHECK OUT THE PEACE CLASS!
The Peace Education Program is provided as a 10-week series of classes. Each session lasts from 45 minutes to one hour.
Any existing group or organisation can apply to facilitate a Peace Class. They are running in 81 countries, translated into 35+ languages. A few volunteers on Salt Spring heard about it and got together to offer one here. Attendance is open.
ON SALT SPRING ISLAND, WE BEGIN WITH A SAMPLE CLASS. All are welcome to attend so you can check it out to see if the rest of the series is something you'd be interested in.
The 2020 sessions take place in the big meeting room off the entrance lobby at the SALT SPRING PUBLIC LIBRARY. Feel free to attend one or more classes.
Note the scheduling variations - Saturdays at 3:30 and Sundays at 5:30.

CLASSES CURRENTLY CANCELLED. FOR A PERSONAL, AT-HOME VERSION, VISIT
Each class consists of videos and written material, and explores a particular theme like Inner Strength, Choice, Self Awareness, Clarity, and the possibility of Personal Peace. The content is completely non-religious and non-sectarian and is suitable for teens to seniors. Much of the material is excerpted from worldwide presentations given by Mr Prem Rawat who is an author and a speaker who has been internationally recognised as an Ambassador of Peace. The message is delivered with lots of humour, wisdom and practical insight that, in 2018, was heard by over 16% of the world's population.
There is no expectation to join group discussion nor is there any expectation to have on-going contact or involvement of any kind. This is about your own personal exploration.
The peace class material will be of interest to anyone wanting to know themselves better. You are welcome to check out the page called What People Say to get a sense of the class from the views expressed by previous participants. Sample videos that are used in the class to open discussion, note-taking or private reflection are here.
There is no cost, as previous graduates "pay it forward" with donations to allow future participants to register for free.
