Peace Education Program – An Introduction
Peace Education Program
The purpose of the Peace Education Program (PEP) is to help participants discover their own inner resources—innate tools for living such as inner strength, choice, and hope—and the possibility of personal peace.
This is an innovative educational program, facilitated by volunteers, with a curriculum that consists of 10 videos, each focusing on a particular theme. These customized, interactive workshops are non-religious and non-sectarian. The content of each theme is based on excerpts from Prem Rawat’s international talks. The themes are: Peace, Appreciation, Inner Strength, Self-Awareness, Clarity, Understanding, Dignity, Choice, Hope, and Contentment.
You are invited to explore these resources and learn more about TPRF’s Peace Education Program. For further information on initiating a PEP workshop in your area, or other information, please send a request to TPRF, selecting “Peace Education Programs” as your subject.
