oceanic-peace-revolution-fellowshipThe Oceanic Peace Revolution Fellowship, entitled “Peace In + Peace Out = Sustainable World Peace”, will bring together a group of young people from all Oceanian countries who are interested in learning and exploring self-development as a primary means to make this world a better place to live. This retreat aims to promote a culture of peace, peace education, conflict prevention and youth empowerment through the primary means of self-development and meditation.

We live in a world which is often chaotic, stressful and where many people live their lives in situations which are out of their control. By developing personal skills, people can learn to be less reactive to emotions, stress, and challenging external environments and instead become proactive towards real and meaningful world change.

The recent events and the rising of social and environmental occurrences across most Oceanian countries have highlighted the emergence of a new generation of leaders that yearn for change. The purpose of this fellowship is to engage young open-minded leaders and support their growth as change-makers to effectively contribute to the region’s sustainable and inclusive development. The retreat will include interactive activities, meditation sessions, lectures, and discussions, providing the participants with new skills for non-violent interaction and peace education. The aim of these activities is to promote individuals in the evolvement towards awareness and responsible handling of their personal, situational power. Encompassing heartfelt, caring consideration of others, and the aware capability to ensure that no suffering is fostered, the individual is supported to embody the qualities of meditation.

This fellowship will be the first of its kind in the Oceanian countries to bridge the gap between inner peace and social empowerment, leading to transformational and peaceful activism.
