The Peace Center is proud to present a
broad range of peace programming. The basic
principles we study are profound, but not necessarily easy to embody and practice in our daily lives. It is
in the classroom or group discussion where we experience the practical application of peace ideas and
spiritual principles. The process of regular class attendance is how we begin to embody a true change in our
consciousness, as it becomes part of a regular spiritual practice.
No matter who you are or what the
current issues on your path, in classes you will find a new perspective - in a timeless message that is totally
relevant for today. Through lectures, discussions, and
workshops led by a qualified instructor, the student learns how to personalize the same spiritual principles about
peace, unity, and connectedness which the great masters throughout history have used to experience greater
wholeness! The support of shared insights and the opportunity to ask questions in a classroom setting
offer a learning environment not easily duplicated with solitary study. The discipline of regular attendance and
the weekly readings create a framework for asking the big questions about world peace, life in general, and our
place in it.

Is there tuition for classes?
Taking class requires a commitment of both time and money. The truth is, little can be achieved
without commitment. It creates an expectancy of change which is very valuable. Tuition is typically $125 for 8
weeks of classes - each class is between 1.5 and 2 hours each. Textbooks are extra. Detailed information is
provided in the syllabus the first meeting of the class.
