Peace Innovation Institute

 

What is the Peace Innovation Institute? When we look at available solutions to world peace and their results, we see that there is plenty of room for innovation. We are establishing a Research Department, a think tank among our certified Peace DonorsSM who want to contribute original research to a repository of solutions to world peace. We call it The Peace Innovation Institute.

 

It Starts with a Peace Retreat

 

mountain path

 

The research at the Institute will be elicited in the same manner for all, through a day-long guided meditation retreat, online or in person (depending on enrollment - and probably NOT hiking in the Alps!). Journey inward and walk the inner landscape, and emerge with a peace mission that is uniquely based on your integrated life experience, knowledge, culture, and inner resources. Only you can articulate it and put it into a format that can be shared with others. The world needs your treasured gift of peace--are you willing to take the journey inward to unearth it? The retreat is organic, inspired process that is facilitated by Margo Ruark and Lawrence Toliver.

 

From the Retreat Comes a Thesis that is about Your Unique Approach to Peace

 

 

Keep calm

 

Following the retreat, a thesis is generated following our guidelines, and the thesis will be presented before a panel of experienced Peace DonorsSM at our Peace Colloquium!!It is our high vision that qualified faculty will have the opportunity to establish local PCI Schools for Peace and conduct peace education classes along with ongoing meditation groups.

Peace Colloquium

 

 

The Peace Innovation Institute is also initiating a sustainable Colloquium for Peace. A Colloquium is a conference at which scholars or other experts present papers on, analyze, and discuss a specific topic, in this case creative solutions to world peace.Every presenter at the Colloquium will be a member of a lively think tank whose objective will be to initiate and sustain schools and other institutions for peace all over the world.

community

 

Our purpose at the Colloquium will be to generate curriculum for use within the schools. One example might be to create culture specific Workshops for Peace that are open to the thinking public. Another might be how to organize a Peace Day festival. Or establishing Holy Day and Every Day Peace DonorSM meditations and practices suited to the cultures and traditions of the societies in which they, the presenters themselves, operate. Another might be how to write a peace blog. Or taking a play or piece of choreography about peace and developing age-appropriate modules for elementary, middle and high school children as they learn to express themselves through drama and movement and related elements of the theater. We have an interesting line-up of faculty if the interest in supporting the Institute exists!
