PUBLIC VIRTUAL PEACE EDUCATION PROGRAMME
In September 2020 we held a Peace Partners webinar to introduce the Peace Education Programme – the ground-breaking course initiated by The Prem Rawat Foundation. The webinar was held with the intention of inviting members of the public to the 10-week course hosted virtually by Peace Partners. Thank you to everyone who attended and thank you especially to anyone who invited friends, family or colleagues. You can watch the short introduction to TPRF’s programme here: Helping People Discover Personal Peace.
The weeks zoom by and we are delighted to let you know that the course has been successfully hosted by Peace Partners via Zoom, and is due to finish soon. We’d like to thank the team responsible for their time and passion in setting up, practicing and running the course. We understand that team members are enjoying it as much as the participants! “It’s really powerful”, “We need reminding” are two of the reactions that have come from the course. The simplicity and humour in the content has also been remarked on! Thank you to everyone who applied to attend the course. Please keep in touch to find out when more are being planned.
If you’re interested in hosting a course yourself go to: Peace Education Programme - Offer the Workshops. TPRF is available to provide any support needed to make the course a success for host organisations and participants alike. You can also contact the team at Peace Partners for specific assistance or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a personal reflection from Peta Stampfer, who is helping host the current course:
"What a truly inspiring and heart-warming experience it was to be part of a recent virtual PEP. I acted as Facilitator for the 10 week programme and was surprised and delighted by the warmth and intimate feeling that it was possible to create in an online environment. Watching the video clips of Prem Rawat’s talks and the clever, humorous, animated stories focusing on a different theme each week, all added to make inspiring and engaging workshops. It was nice to get to know the participants over the weeks, and having the opportunity for all of us to share our thoughts and observations made the whole experience one of sharing understanding and inspiration."
As we commemorate the final days of this historic black history month, Peace Partners invites you to share an exciting opportunity with the young poet in your life:
Join young writers from across the country in this fun-filled and inspired writing competition. The deadline for submissions is quickly approaching, and will be read by an esteemed panel of talented artists (including poet and founder of Young People Insight, longtime-Peace Partners collaborator Shaniqua Benjamin!). Best of luck to you all!
