The Summer of Peace team would like to offer you the following recordings to help you deal with the recent shootings and other atrocities. We hope these recordings will help you move from shock and trauma to a place of compassionate and wise action. Together, we can explore how to move beyond gun violence or any violence for that matter.
Please share these recordings with your family, friends, schools and community centers.
Inner Peace is a Global Responsibility - Richard Miller. Richard links deep inner peace practices with helping people overcome trauma, including veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Moving Beyond Gun Violence Part 1 - Jamira Burley and William Kellibrew IV. Jamira’s brother was killed in his sleep and William witnessed his mother and brother killed. Jamira and William went through terrible trauma and emerged as powerful peacebuilders working to reduce gun violence.
Moving Beyond Gun Violence Part 2 - Dot Maver, Heart Phoenix and Jeffrey Weisberg. Dot, Heart and Jeffrey have decades of peacebuilding experience. Together, they created the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding - a community approach to reducing violence in Gainesville, Florida that can be replicated elsewhere.
Restorative Justice on the Rise - Molly Rowan Leach. Propelled by her mother’s imprisonment, Molly created Restorative Justice on the Rise - a telesummit series that highlights how restorative justice practices are helping communities heal after crimes and in the process creating alternatives to the prison systems.
We hope these recordings will be of service to you, your family and friends. Please know the Summer of Peace is available as a resource to you. It has an audio library of free recordings with interviews of over 180 peacebuilders from around the world, looking at peace from the inner to the international levels. http://summit.summerofpeace.net/
