NAPF PEACE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
I currently give workshops around the country on peace leadership, strategy, and tactics to students and citizens of all ages who want to become more effective at creating positive change. I also teach a seven-day Peace Leadership Summer Workshop in Santa Barbara. For more information about the workshop please visit the following site:
To build a foundation for understanding waging peace, which is vital to peace leadership, I am writing The Road to Peace book series. This is a five-book series that provides a framework for ending the wars between countries, our ongoing war with nature, and the war in our hearts. This book series is a resource for anyone who wants to understand how positive change happens on both the global and personal levels. The ideas in these books build upon each other, creating a body of work that challenges the myths of war and misconceptions of human nature. To reveal the solutions to our human problems, each book journeys deeper to unlock the secrets of peace, joy, and what it means to be human.
