Is peace of mind something you seek? Amid the chaos we see in the world, do you think finding peace of mind is even possible? Can you imagine yourself incarcerated, homeless, or not sure of the next time you’ll be able to eat or take a shower? Under these circumstances would you be able to maintain your composure, your humanity, or your dignity?
The New York Peace Project
The ultimate goal of the New York Peace Project is to reduce or eliminate needless, human suffering, regardless of the circumstances we encounter in life. When someone understands that the only source of their suffering comes from within, from their own thinking, and that they don’t have to feed into every thought they have, the impact of this realization can be transformative. People realize they are not broken; they only think they are. Once this takes hold in a person’s life they begin to find the clarity to solve problems that previously appeared insurmountable.
We are attempting to bring this message of hope and transformation to all those who would never have the opportunity to hear this message for themselves. This includes people who are incarcerated, residing in homeless shelters, in locked psychiatric units, in residential substance abuse treatment programs, and residing in neighborhoods where people are often simply struggling to survive.
We are asking for your support so the work we are doing, on a volunteer basis, can continue. This volunteer work will evolve into the development of ongoing community-based groups that will be facilitated by graduates of our introductory workshops and mentoring program. This will ensure that the seeds we are planting in many different communities will take root, and the uplifting message of the New York Peace Project will be heard far and wide.
If you feel the importance of reaching those that are marginalized in our society and want to bring our program to the communities that need access to their own well-being and inner guidance the most, please visit our Go Fund Me page and give what you can.
