At the Peaceful Project, we are aware that the leaders of tomorrow are the youth of today. With our experience, knowledge, expertise and wisdom, we provide opportunities, methods, and tools for individuals to access the brilliance that resides within.
When people feel good about themselves internally, when they have the confidence within to express their brilliance, they will do what is best and create amazing journeys for themselves.
We guide them to find their own inner wisdom and truth and effectively express that in their lives. Our programs give individuals an experience of the often unexpected power of peace in their lives.
The Peaceful Project’s mission is to empower individuals through dynamic and experiential programs that foster peaceful relationships based on personal responsibility, collaboration, leadership, and empowerment.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
The Peaceful Project was founded in 2004 to assist in bringing more peace to the global community at large. What is paramount to us is bringing lasting, positive and peaceful change. Our unique approach and our distinctive programs allow us to be extremely effective in removing perceived barriers around conflict and to provide practical tools that empower individuals to engage responsibly, identifying core values and connecting to a vision of the future that they truly desire.
OUR FOUNDATIONAL CONCEPTS
We celebrate difference - We model empathy in a simple and successful manner that encourages individuals to share more about themselves as well as how their challenges may affect them and their behavior. This model creates an environment where individuals are able to see that when we are challenged, when it comes to how we feel, we are far more alike than we are different.
We understand feelings - We believe that feelings are valuable and allow us to be more open and vulnerable with ourselves and with each other. In our programs, we help individuals acknowledge their feelings and assist them in moving through them rather than blaming others for how they feel.
We look within - Our programs model and teach a practical and applicable tool that provides a method for individuals to access their innate goodness even in the most challenging circumstances. This builds self-esteem and self-confidence.
We create peace for self and others - We provide individuals with the practical tools to resolve conflicts in a peaceful and respectful way. We practice these tools both individually and as a group so that we can all experience the power of peace in life.
OUR CORE VALUES
Respect - We respect each other and embrace the diverse perspectives of all individuals.
Listening - We build trust by being a listener rather than an adviser.
Collaboration - We are more effective when we work together.
Curiosity - We demonstrate and encourage curiosity to open ourselves to possibility.
Creativity - We use creativity to solve problems and seek solutions.
Confidence - Through open hearted vulnerability we share ourselves to build confidence.
Trustworthy - We build trust by operating from all the above.
