Inner Peace - World Peace
Our group is called Inner Peace - World Peace. We met on Saturday mornings for almost 12 years (4-12-2002 to 1-9-2014) in First United Church of Oak Park, Illinois. Over the course of the years, 128 people sat in for at least one session. Some who attended the group were members of the church but the group was open to anyone interested in nonviolence and it had been quite an assortment of people. The premise of the group is that "Peace begins with me."
Our mission: Inner Peace - World Peace advocates for nonviolence by means of spiritual disciplines, group meetings, education and activism. We believe there is a necessary connection between inner transformation and finding effective alternatives to violence in the world. We had welcomed dialog with others.
