Profound Peace
A Visionary Society Project
Profound Peace is resolving conflict at the root level, through introspection and direct, personal, collaborative action. Whether in our personal life, locally or globally, we can step out of the cycle of violence and establish meaningful, collaborative and peaceful relationships.

Overview
Profound Peace is resolving conflict at the root level, through introspection and direct, personal, collaborative action. Whether in our personal life, locally or globally, we can step out of the cycle of violence and establish meaningful, collaborative and peaceful relationships.
 
 
Project Details
 
Profound Peace includes:
– Topics to learn about deep responses to conflict and specific conflicts.
– An annual public event for sharing deep responses to conflict, in public spaces and in the media.
– Requests to Prisons and Security Guards to start taking steps to change aggression into cooperation.
– Pledges that soldiers, police, judges and lawyers can take for basic humanity and helpfulness in their profession.
– The formation of a Peace Brigade for any conflict, in which participants take a pledge for deep understanding of opposing sides and, most of all, to create peace in themselves and their personal life.

Principles
Understand the grievances of the opposing side.
Understand the suffering of the opposing side.
