Envisioning and Uplifting Peace

A FREE Zoom Event

“Believe in truth. The spirit generated by truth is stronger than the force of circumstances.” ~ Albert Schweitzer 

In preparation for our Coming Home retreat on the conflicted border in Ireland, Emily Blefeld and Dan Cohen are hosting a Free Zoom call on July 2nd from 2-4pm Eastern to nourish the alchemy of peace and transformation within your own heart. Together, we will weave a shared vision of possibility for the world we want future generations to inherit. 

To yearn for peace is easy. But to devote oneself to the day that humanity co-exists peacefully, to pursue such a day resolutely, and to mold one’s words, actions, and relationships accordingly is not so easy. It requires a willingness to remain faithful to the vision throughout our lives. It demands we create peace each day despite whatever calamities happened yesterday and whatever fears darken tomorrow’s horizon.  

The principle of quantum potentiality suggests that whatever we perceive as occurring in the external world is correspondingly happening within us. If we observe the war in Gaza or in Ukraine or in Congo, these wars are within us as well. And if we yearn for peace, the potential for peace is within us. 

As the technologies of the Internet, Zoom, and international travel have brought people from far-flung communities together, we have come to appreciate that the land of the Earth is one land and that every human is a child of that land. Everyone has the right to a home and a place to feel their roots in embodied safety. 

Our ancestors, who reside in our cellular memory, including those who endured unimaginable suffering, can take their place in our journey towards wholeness. Through the alchemy of transformation, the wars they endured can finally be over, freeing the living from the need to avenge their losses or atone for their excesses. 

This event is a safe space for self-discovery, healing, and personal growth. It's an opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded individuals who are on a similar journey towards wholeness.
