Put an end to war in yourself.
Repent for the harm you have done.
Instead of demanding change, ask for understanding.
Don't try to address external needs first.
Always decide to use humble love.
Look at evil with the eyes of a mother
Find a way that changes assumptions, that all sides can agree with, that works at the heart level.

As a participant you’ll receive monthly updates on the progress of this Peace Brigade. You can participate as much or as little as you like:
– Meeting with your ‘opponents’ (in person or virtual).
– Insights, Reflection, Pledge.
– City-wide learning and action.

Help get this Project started in your community. Supporting helps build the critical mass for change. Supporting a Project, in any area, is becoming – starting to become – Visionary citizen.
Supporters receive a monthly message with insights, challenges and action opportunities. You may deactivate your Support at any time.

Insights to grasp
“Freedom from conflict comes with choiceless awareness of the content of conflict.” J. Krishnamurti

Guide
We’re looking for a Guide for this Proposal. A stipend for volunteers ($100 - $250) is available. Application.


 
To learn more, visit the Quest Peace.
Quests are a way to grasp any topic, from Mystery to Perspectives to Reflect to Action

A great insight matters little unless and until we bring it into the world
Action is the final and necessary step in Quest. What kind of action? It doesn’t matter much, as long as it is offered publicly and in a way that breaks through pleasantries, addresses the root issue, and creates a climate of affection and reflection.
• Any social problem can be resolved at the root level.
• Invitations work by creating awareness. The more people we invite, the more momentum there is.
• It is always possible to reach the heart of the protagonist.

Gatherings
Exploring a Quest on your own is good, but doing it together with friends and community members is better.
Schedule a Gathering.

Exploring a Quest on your own is good, but doing it together with friends and community members is better! Facilitating Quests is easy and no one needs to be an expert. The Quest Path is intuitive. Just take the steps that interest you. To begin, decide on the Gathering type.
Quest Meeting
Hold a meeting open to Visionary society members and the public, with the purpose of following any Quest Path, reaching the heart of a basic social or personal mystery. See more.
Public Action
A great insight matters little unless and until we bring it into the world. Public Action is bringing the insights of a Quest to the public. It works by engagement – engaging the public, helpfully but with clarity, in matters of significance. See more.
Celebration of the Good
Can we envision a new kind of entertainment, one that engages people in active celebration of beauty, truth and good? See more.
