Pondering Peace in a World of Turmoil:
A Community Forum
“Pondering Peace In a world of Turmoil” is a 3-day conference to promote peace in our community through intercultural communication, contemplation, sage guidance, and artistic expression. This special event will gather community leaders, Pacifica Graduate Institute Faculty, students and alumni, local artists and renowned visionaries to encourage, inspire, and chart a transition or path toward peace during tumultuous and heart-wrenching times.
“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.”
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
“Each of us as citizens has a role to play in creating a better world for our children.”
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
