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.
Each workshop features video excerpts of renowned author
Prem Rawat’s inspiring presentations on one of ten themes: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
Facilitated reflection time, participant discussions, workbook activities, and reading materials vary the workshops, making them fun and adaptable.
The role of the facilitator requires no professional qualifications. TPRF is available to provide any support needed to make the program a success for host organizations and participants alike.
Individuals or organizations can apply to TPRF for a free license to offer the course to interested groups.

News About the 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
