Watch “Choosing Peace”
Colombia was embroiled in the chaos of civil war for more than 5 decades, with some 220,000 lives lost and millions more traumatized. This documentary highlights how the Peace Education Program is helping people recover.
Learn how you or your organization can use the Peace Education Program to change lives:
The Peace Education Program consists of several 10-session courses that explore the experience of personal peace, each helping participants discover their own inner resources to live more fulfilling lives. The sessions focus on 10 different themes: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-Awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
The core material for each theme is a selection of video excerpts from Prem Rawat’s talks. Sessions also include facilitated reflection time, participant discussion, and workbook learning. The interactive, multimedia workshops are non-religious and non-sectarian, and have been proven to benefit diverse groups of people in over 80 countries.
The Prem Rawat Foundation makes the Peace Education Program available to individuals and organizations at no charge.
