Peace Circles are the core component of the Creators of Peace programme.
The eight-week online Peace Circles course explores 10 themes centred around creating peace that includes listening to others, the power of forgiveness, and inner peace. Each weekly session serves as a ‘gathering point’ and is designed to connect from week to week, so participants need to commit to all the sessions per course. The course is unique in that it also offers an opportunity for each participant to share their own story, which allows for self-empowerment and development of ones own peacemaking skills.
Peace Circle’s are facilitated in the style of a ‘talking circle’, where all voices are heard respectfully, and a safe space is established at the beginning of each session to allow individuals to explore diverse perspectives. Peace Circles are free of charge as they are subsidized by donations, grants and volunteers. At the end of a Peace Circle we encourage contributions from participants as a way to ‘pay it forward’ so we can continue to offer all women the opportunity to participate in exploring their role as a peace creator.
Please note that due to the connected nature of Peace Circles you will need to commit to attending all seven sessions in a course.
