Peace Education Program

The Peace Education Program is an innovative series of video-based workshops that help people discover their own inner strength and personal peace.

The program gives participants the opportunity to focus and reflect on their own humanity, and their inner resources such as choice, hope, and dignity. Rather than describing or defining personal peace, the program empowers individuals to reach their own understanding. Everyone can benefit. The program has proven effective in a variety of settings including community centers, youth groups, schools, adult education programs, veterans’ groups, healthcare settings, senior centers, homeless shelters, drug rehabilitation facilities, and correctional facilities.

The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) provides access to the course materials to organizations and volunteers free of charge, making the Peace Education Program readily available to diverse populations in more than 80 countries and in 40 languages.

News About the Peace Education Program

Reducing Police Stress in Mexico with Peace Education Program 

Reducing Police Stress in Mexico with Peace Education Program 

“Historically, the police have tended to work separately from the people. The culture of the Peace Education Program helps with the challenge of that approach because it seeks to first transform this element – me, the policeman – being at peace with myself.” – Valentín Contreras, Police Training Director

What People Say About the Program:

In Schools

“Bringing peace education to five hundred schools in Antioquia is sending a message: there is a new possibility. Those children that stopped dreaming about the future are now building the future.”

— Dr. Néstor David Restrepo Bonnett, Secretary of Education Department of Antioquia, Colombia

In Corrections

“The participants all leave better than before. Some who were known to have coping and behavioral challenges have made 180-degree turnarounds.” 

— Terrence Mathews, Counselor at Metro West Detention Center, Miami, FL, U.S.A.
