New 9-Week Live Video Training Starts
Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Access tools to cultivate inner peace and break free of reactive patterns by staying connected to your heart, your higher wisdom, and your loved ones.

Do you find it difficult to stay calm in the face of conflict — whether it’s within yourself or with others?

When confronted with challenges, do you tend to react out of upset, fear, or anger... saying or doing things that ultimately may not serve you or your relationships?

And when you act from a place of adversity, do you struggle to find self-forgiveness or forgiveness for others who’ve caused you harm?

We live in a world stricken with injustice, violence, and chaos — personal and collective — and we must all learn better ways to handle conflict, transform cruelty, and create harmony in ourselves and with our beloveds, our communities, and our world.

Certainly many of us feel called to help end global issues that separate and destroy us...

... yet, we’re not equipped to be activists for peace in the world until we’re able to access inner peace in our daily lives. And that’s the first step in more effectively handling conflict of any kind — with conscious, heart-led responses.

In this powerful new 9-week journey, you’ll explore tangible and personal ways to learn to live in peace.

You’ll discover how to find inner peace by creating harmony in your heart, and cultivating the essence of peace in all you do AND with all the people in your life.

You’ll experience tools and practical techniques you can use in the moment to bring more compassion, kindness, tolerance, and forgiveness into your life...

... so you can ease stress and diminish the potential damage inherent in the challenges you face.

You’ll practice Nonviolent Communication, mindfulness meditation, heart coherence, compassion-building skills... AND receive powerful wisdom on how to engage your capacity to authentically and unconditionally forgive — even when it seems like an impossible choice to make.

You’ll discover how your past actions have led you to your current circumstances... and how to become aware of your own filter bubbles so you can expand and connect to differing perspectives.

You’ll learn to create more authentic, positive, and effective cross-race relations...

And you’ll unlock a deeper sense of calm and resilience while engaging in easy-to-pick-up strategies to free yourself of negative emotions, all in a safe, supportive space.

Learn to Fully Embody Peace

How do you find inner peace when the world around you is fraught with unrest, inequality, and a fiercely divisive political and social climate?

Staying calm amidst challenges requires great skill in working with your internal emotions, subtle energies, and communication.

Amandine Roche and Philip M. Hellmich will guide you through simple practices to help you access the wisdom of your heart.

They’ll illuminate personal tools you can start using right away to cultivate peace inside yourself — to help you stay grounded and calm even when you’re triggered.

Over the course of nine weeks, you’ll be guided in step-by-step processes to heal personal and collective wounds, and communicate in a neutral, heart-centered way...

And, you’ll dive into the science of mindfulness.

Amandine and Philip will lead all the classes and share their insights while incorporating teachings from guest faculty.

This training will offer you an immersive experience in building skills with today’s top peace leaders including Sister Jenna, Richard Miller, Emily Hine, Azim Khamisa, Rita Marie Johnson, Dereca Blackmon, Joan Blades, John Gable, Roxy Manning, and Deborah Rozman.

The teachings will be divided into the three pillars of inner peace building:

  • Mindfulness, Inner Peace, and Resilience
  • Healing Personal and Collective Wounds
  • Communicating Peace

Each pillar will be supplemented with bonus recordings from other renowned faculty to provide additional wisdom.

The 90-minute classes will each be taught by a different guest faculty member — offering specific skills, insights, practices, and strategies for improving your skills in mindfulness, heart coherence, and inner resilience.

On this powerful path to inner peace, you’ll discover:

  • A deeper sense of peace, calm, and resilience in facing day-to-day challenges
  • Potent practices to leverage your heart’s intelligence... transforming negative emotions and accessing your higher wisdom
  • How to respond instead of react when triggered by people and events
  • How to apply mindfulness practices to cultivate a deep sense of calm — and transform how you deal with conflict
  • Ways to dissolve the walls around your own heart, so you can come to genuine forgiveness and healing around past wounds
  • Exercises you can use anytime to help you find your center amid conflict — in the moment
  • How to hold space for truths that diverge from your own... while fully embodying the power of your emotional and intellectual insight and wisdom
  • An authentic, compassionate connection with others using Nonviolent Communication techniques
  • How meditation can help you work with the negative “voice” in your head so you can embody deep and unchanging inner harmony
  • Harness your heart’s power and intelligence for more intuition and joy and less stress
  • Strategies for freeing yourself of negative emotions
  • How to enrich and strengthen your personal relationships with specific compassion practices based on ancient and modern wisdom
  • How to enter into loving relationships and service to others by healing your own wounds
  • How to cultivate listening and dialogue to co-create a culture of peace in your family, workplace, organization, or community
  • Ways to increase your capacity for more authentic, positive, and effective cross-race relations
  • Strategies to identify and heal old wounds in yourself and with loved ones, colleagues, and community members
  • How to stand in the fire of opposing views and hold space for others to do the same

In Find Your Inner Peace in Challenging Times, you’ll discover how to tune into your core of love so you can feel more peace and joy as you walk through the world.

Join these inspiring change-makers and discover the deep wisdom and experience-based knowledge you need to take yourself to the next level of living in peace.

The transformation that comes can liberate your heart, mind, and soul from negative patterns, resistance, and fear — enabling you to become a more radiant and healing light in the world!

Peace & Freedom From the Inside Out
Audio Training With James O’Dea

James O’Dea invites us to take responsibility for cultivating inner peace while working in the world from a place of deep integrity. As James says, “The peacebuilder must develop an impressive skillfulness in offering solutions, avoiding the blame game, and playing a mediating role between perspectives that are locked inside self-limiting definitions.”

At the same time, the Peace Ambassador does not take him/herself too seriously. “A world without laughter would not be a safe or peaceful world,” James says. For instance, “The fundamentalists are not having fun!”

In this session, you’ll:

  • Take careful inventory of your inner moral maps, belief systems, and psychological perspectives — and examine how they influence your relationship with the outer, and vice versa
  • Identify the obstacles that prevent you from expressing your own essential qualities, talents, and capacities
  • Learn personal peace practices that help you tap into your deepest essence and create a solid foundation for authentic inner peace

James O’Dea is the author of Soul Awakening Practice, The Conscious Activist: Where Activism Meets Mysticism, Cultivating Peace, and other acclaimed works. James is a well-known figure in international social healing who's conducted healing and reconciliation dialogues for 20 years.

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate.

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
