  • {Do you seek greater inner peace?} 

    Our Topic This Evening Will

    provide you an opportunity to let go of tension, upset, and judgements so that you can experience greater peace.

    Many of us have accepted living with tensions in our bodies, with upsets spoiling our mood at unexpected times, with judgments sneaking in. 

    Come join us as we practice living our lives more peacefully. 

    Peace is not being passive, submissive or indifferent. Peace is an active consciousness that we can learn to enter into, enriching our individual lives, our social situations and the world at large. 

    During this evening, we will practice discovering the peace that is always present within us -- no matter what else is going on inside us or outside us in the world.   As we practice recognizing our inner core of peace, we become increasingly able to choose to live in that consciousness of inner peace, even at difficult times of our lives. 

    We will look at where we unconsciously practice "against-ness", and learn to let go of that feeling of against-ness, to better work with reality and with the people who surround us. As we let go of "against-ness", we also let go of the upset feelings, prejudices, judgments, tenseness, etc. 

    This meeting is sponsored by the Institute of Individual and World Peace (www.iiwp.org)

    To Prepare ....

    1) When do you feel "against-ness"? 


    2) What are the physical signs of your against-ness? (e.g., tightness in throat)  

    3) What emotional signs or mental beliefs could be signs of against-ness?

    4) How could you be more effective if you were in peace even when bad things happened?

    Our Leaders This Afternoon

    David Jenkins aspires to live his life more and more in peace. He considers himself a student of living the four principles of peace in his life. This is his highest priority. He is overjoyed to have been involved with the Peacemaker Project for several years. It expands peace in a quiet, loving way, one person at a time.

    Emily Page delights in finding joy with others and as an inner process one moment at a time.She's been assisting with Boston Area PeaceMaker Meetings because the simple tools shared go so deep, work so fast and foster such harmony between participants, one session after another. 

    Philosophy: The philosophy grounding this work is the realization that peace must start with the individual. One can not fight for peace. If we are going to be a conduit for peace, we must start with ourselves and be in peace. Peace is defined as the absence of againstness. If we can be in peace without being against ourselves or others or situations and encourage others to do the same, then we can be a conduit for peace. 

    Facilitators Motivation: We aspire to live our lives more and more in peace. This intention is our highest priority. Participating in these meetings is one way to learn to live our lives more and more in peace. Encouraging others to do the same is strengthening for us all.
