International Youth Fellowship

The First Global Peace on The Move in the Caribbean, Jamaica

When: 17 - 30 April 2016
Where: Jamaica
Application deadline: 10 Feb 2016
Eligibility deadline: 10 Mar 2016
How to apply:

The Caribbean is well known for their warm and beautiful islands, joyful people, reggae music and a mix of cultures that is what brought us to this part of the continent. They already know how to live in peace, connected to the earth, sky and the sea. PR wants to bring them another type of peace to be found inside themselves, an inner peace that will blossom in outer peace for their region. We will share with the Caribbean a simple tool: meditation.

Global Peace on the Move (GPM) is a set of international meditation retreats performed in Thailand, but for the first time, we are moving it to the Caribbean. Don't lose this opportunity, apply now!
The fellowship offers a 14 days intensive training program providing participants with deeper insight in the relationship between inner peace and sustainable world peace and enhancing their ability to create peace within their family, professional and social environment.

Conflict resolution and the role of the basic human self-disciplines
