Do you want more peace and ease in all aspects of your life – relationships, workplace and family?
Are you concerned about the ongoing conflicts in the Ukraine and Venezuela, long-standing tensions in the Middle East and North Korea, and daily tragic violence in every region?
It’s clear that our human family must learn better ways to handle conflict, transform cruelty and create harmony in our world. For us to create the global community that is possible, it’s imperative that we learn to live in peace in truly tangible ways.
This won’t be realized solely on the national and international levels though. It starts with each one of us in our daily lives as we learn to bring peace into the personal realm through discovering better ways to handle conflict in our homes, transform the cruelty in our minds and create harmony in our hearts.
For us to create the world that is possible, it is imperative that we each bring peace into our daily lives by cultivating its essence in all we do AND learning how to be engaged in the wider work of planetary peacebuilding. It is imperative that we learn to hold all levels of peace work, from the inner to the international, bridging from our internal experience of peace outward to the global tensions and conflicts.
In this special teleseminar event, six of the world’s most respected peacebuilders and thought leaders, led by renowned teacher and social healer James O’Dea, will explore the integration of experiencing and embodying peace while taking action to promote peace – in oneself, family, community and world at large.
They will illuminate the leading edge breakthroughs that can help you break free of the destructive conflicts in your inner world, your personal life and throughout the entire planetary community.
To build peace from the inner level to the international level requires great skill in working with your internal emotions, subtle energies, communications, and movement building. Join this expert panel and learn the best information quickly to take yourself to the next level of living in peace.
During the call, James O’Dea will also share about the Peace Ambassador Training, the premiere training for spiritually-based agents of peace, featuring luminaries like Arun Gandhi, Deepak Chopra, and more.
Never has the call been clearer: we must step into a new identity as Peace Ambassadors to represent a new humanity that is evolving towards peace on Earth.
Sign up for this special call so you don’t miss out on the latest wave of peace that can help all of us fulfill our boldest dreams!
