For all of us who long for more peace and harmony in our lives and our world, some days, the challenges we face feel daunting.

In these times, it’s common to feel overwhelmed by the inner conflicts within ourselves – not to mention the pain generated by clashes with family members, friends, co-workers... and even strangers. And when we hear about bullying in schools, the senseless violence in our neighborhoods and the bloodshed in war-torn nations, it’s so easy to feel helpless and fall into despair.

It can be difficult to know where to turn to find the inspiration and guidance we need to heal the conflicts in our own hearts, in our relationships and in our larger world.

This is where The Summer of Peace comes in.

This monumental series features insights and practical skills from the world’s leading peacebuilders – so you’ll be empowered to become an effective agent of peace who can co-create a life and a world where peace – instead of conflict – is the new baseline.

  • You’ll discover more personal ease, joy and well-being with practices to help you connect more profoundly to the deep peace within yourself.
  • You’ll experience deeper, fuller and more harmonious relationships with your family, friends, co-workers and community members.
  • You’ll be inspired and uplifted when you hear the success stories from some of the most desperate areas on the planet.
  • And you’ll discover powerful tools to help accelerate the shift to a world of peace!

Join the top peacebuilders – people like Desmond Tutu and Eckhart Tolle – and organizations who have come together with the intention of helping you bring more peace to all areas of your life and our planet.

With the Summer of Peace, we are galvanizing an emerging global movement to create a culture of peace by showcasing peacebuilding efforts – from the inner to the international levels and across every sector of society. You will be inspired to participate in peace efforts in ways that are meaningful for you.

The Summer of Peace Programs Include:

11 Days of Global Unity. This 10th Anniversary celebration of peace, justice and environmental stewardship and the U.N. International Day of Peace features Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Eckhart Tolle, Amy Goodman and many other luminaries.

The Spirituality and Peace Meditation Series features profound spiritual teachers from many traditions who led guided meditations focused on the science of “subtle activism” – meditation and prayer to affect changes in the world. Organized by The Gaiafield Project, the teachers were selected because of their deep spiritual practices and ability to transmit the energies of their lineages. This series weaves together the spiritual essence of the world’s religions into a culminating event – BeThePeace on the U.N. International Day of Peace.

The Embodying Peace in Daily Life Series will provide practical insights and skills for creating and sustaining peace in many facets of life – deep inner peace, intimate relationships, parenting, business and front-line peacebuilding work. The series also will have a special Peace Through Music celebration, exploring how the powerful tool of music is inspiring social change and helping people find inner peace. PeaceLink Live also will look at “mainstreaming consciousness” through personal yoga and meditation practices of people in Hollywood, education and professional sports. Bridging the inner to the international, this series includes brilliant teachers from India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, North America and beyond.

Next Generation Solutions is an international celebration of young people who are embodying peace while proactively addressing challenging issues of the world. You’ll get a glimpse into the vast amount of energy and brilliance being generated by a wave of young activists who are creating a new generation of solutions. Hosted by Yuka Saionji from Japan, Barbara Arredondo from Mexico and Ben Hart from the United States (Shift Network), this global series will touch hearts, inspire hope and provide practical insights and tools we all can apply in our lives.

The summit also features tools, resources and events that can help you become an empowered activator for peace.

Your participation in the Summer of Peace is an act of courage and commitment that will move us closer to a global tipping point... that moment when enough people are focused on peace that the balance “tips” – and we become a world of peace.
