The GHFP hosts and facilitates three Peace Circles each year. The programme is offered free of charge, sponsored by the GHFP and Creators of Peace volunteers.
What would it mean to be a creator of peace in our life, family, community, and nation?
The Creators of Peace (CofP) women’s initiative was launched in 1991 by the Hon Anna Abdallah Msekwa of Tanzania, a respected politician and leader of her country’s women’s organizations. The intention is, in the words of Msekwa, “to create peace wherever we are, in our hearts, our homes, our workplace and our community.” Since then, CofP has been offering Peace Circles, bringing together women from all backgrounds, ages and cultures who seek empowerment, inspiration and hope in our current global climate. It is now a global network of people working in different continents through Peace Circles, workshops, personal encounters, community building activities and international conferences.
The GHFP is collaborating with CofP in the UK to facilitate Peace Circles, where all voices are respectfully heard, establishing shared values which will allow the group to explore diverse perspectives on topics such as:
– What is peace?
– Circles of concern and hope
– What builds and destroys peace?
– Qualities and strategies of a peacemaker
– Inner Peace
– Inner Listening
– Listening to others
– The power of forgiveness
– Putting peace into action
