I received the following from the Shift Network--truly worth your time.
THIS WEEK ON SUMMER OF PEACE:
**TODAY** SATURDAY, June 21, 11:30am Pacific: World Peace Prayer - Igniting the Season of Prayer and Meditation with David Nicol, Fumi Johns Stewart, Chief Arvol Looking Horse & Avon Mattison
SUNDAY, June 22, 9:00am Pacific: Spirituality & Peace Sunday with Chief Arvol Looking Horse
Dear Dorothy Walters,
Tuesday’s “Beyond Right and Wrong” session was one of the most powerful interviews on how we can create peace in our relationships and the world! Please, please, please listen to and share the recording with your loved ones! A dear friend of mine heard the interview and is now helping his wife forgive her father for childhood trauma. (See below for more information about the session and free resources.)
It is such a profound opportunity we have to really learn how to embody and create peace in our lives and the world.
And now – this Saturday and Sunday – we can celebrate the solstice with Chief Arvol Looking Horse from the Lakota Nation by joining him and thousands of people in global meditations and prayers for peace and honoring of sacred sites. (The first meditation event will be Saturday at 11:30am Pacific - see below.)
We can do it, we must do it – be the peace we want to see in the world and take practical action.
Please join the meditations and prayers this weekend!
Read on below to catch up on what happened. But first!...

AND HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED IN THE LAST SoP SESSION:
Beyond Right and Wrong
This is by far one of the most powerful interviews that provides practical insights on how to create peace in our personal relationships and the world. Lekha Singh shared why she created the film Beyond Right and Wrong. It looks at how people reconciled and found forgiveness after horrible atrocities in Rwanda, Northern Ireland and Israel-Palestine. Lekha said the film inspires viewers to examine themselves and to take steps to address torn relationships in their own lives. Mitch Warner and the Arbinger Institute provide people who watch the film with a user guide with proven methods on how to heal wounds and create peace with others. This is a powerful “one-two” combination – inspiration with the film and how-to from Arbinger Institute. Ambassador McDonald then joined the conversation and said he has used the film and guide. He shared the story of how he helped create the International Day of Peace. He’s now working with Costa Rica to make the International Day of Peace a national holiday around the world!
POWERFUL RESOURCES FROM TUESDAY’S CALL
I strongly encourage you to watch Lekha’s film Beyond Right and Wrong. It’s available free online and when you watch it, $.50 is donated to a nonprofit organization - click here. After you watch the film, please go to The Reconciliation Project to get the user guide available from the Arbinger Institute - click here.
Also, Ambassador McDonald wants people to see the U.N. Resolution that he drafted for Costa Rica, calling for September 21st to be a global holiday for all member states in celebration of the International Day of Peace. Here is an article Ambassador McDonald wrote for us - click here.
