The Center for Technology, Innovation and Community Engagement at Columbia University and The Tibet Center present
LIVING PEACE: SPIRITUAL APPROACHES TO ACHIEVING INNER PEACE
Columbia University , June 2, 9, 16, 23
The Tibet Center , June 5, 18, 19, 26
LIVING PEACE is a series of seminars and workshops where teachers and leaders of different faith backgrounds will present their respective techniques for realizing inner peace.
We believe that if each individual accomplishes inner peace, we can then take small steps towards achieving global peace. Cultivating a sense of peace internally, at every level of our social structure-within the community, within the family, within the self-is essential for the achievement of world peace.
Living Peace seeks to offer the New York City community practical exposure to different ways of achieving and maintaining inner peace, and promoting awareness of the importance of this state.
