Get Involved…Individuals

“Every thought, every word, and every action that adds to the positive and the wholesome is a contribution to peace.  Each and every one of us is capable of making such a contribution.”

– Aung San Suu Kyi

We hope that you will choose to become involved in the Art of Peace by attending some of our events. But we also invite you to use the days around September 21st (UN International Day of Peace) as days to discover ways that you can develop and deepen your own personal commitment to peace.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Nurture your own inner peace – perhaps through meditation, mindfulness, prayer, spending time nature;

  • Peace through service – spend time helping others;

  • Peace through conscious consumption – use your purchasing power to “vote” for the kind of world you want;

  • Peace through gratitude – focus on counting your blessings;

  • Peace through forgiveness – of yourself and others;

  • Peace through environmentalism – recognize your interconnection with all life on the planet;

  • Peace through honoring and respecting legacy:

    • we are here because of the efforts of countless generations that came before us;

    • what we do today will be the legacy we leave for the countless generations still to come.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”
