Do you want to give a try to meditation and start a true change from within? Your training starts with the 42 Days online self-development program on our interactive platform providing you the basic theory and practice; develop the tool for inner peace and learn about the concept of PIPO - INNER PEACE + OUTER PEACE = SUSTAINABLE WORLD PEACE. Through the Online Special OPS you have the means to share true peace to friends, family and collage at large.

The Peace Revolution Pacific Youth Peace Training will bring together 30 young people from all over Pacific region who are interested in learning and exploring self-development as a primary means to create real world change.

 

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.

 

This retreat aims to promote a culture of peace, peace education, conflict prevention and youth empowerment through the primary means of meditation and self-development.

 

This training will be the first ever of its kind in the Pacific Islands region to bridge the gap between inner peace and social empowerment, which will lead to transformational and peaceful activism.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. What is the self-development program?

The free online self-development program is a 42-day challenge teaching the skills and techniques involved in the development of inner peace. It provides guided meditation videos and daily reflections to support personal development and the practice of mindfulness. You can start the first episode here.

2. What am I supposed to write in the proposal question in the application?

A Mini PIPO proposal is a space for you to submit your possible commitment towards World Peace Initiative Foundation. As you may have read, we call PIPO to the series of meditation events a peace agent (someone that has attended the International Fellowship in Thailand, or the Pacific Youth Peace Training in Fiji) organizes in his/her country once he or she has returned home. Here we are interested in knowing what do you think about if, whether you would be able to do that, which kind of contacts you have, possible venues, estimated amount of people, how you would plan to do that, etc. So, this is a space for you to also add or tell us about different ideas you have to keep engaged with the organization regardless the possibility of organizing PIPO, for example linking your organization with ours, helping us in a specific area of your expertise, organizing periodic online meditation sessions, etc.

3. I am over 30, can I still apply for the training?

 

Everyone is welcome to join the training. We are looking for young peace activists interested in self-development, who want to learn how to develop their own inner peace in order to engage more effectively in their peace work. However, to be eligible for the partial sponsoring of airfare, candidates must be between 20-32 years old.

 

4. I do not live in above mentioned countries, but still part of Pacific region, can I still apply?

Please consider looking out our international fellowships which take place in Thailand and other regional fellowship and camps in various part of world.

After completing your 42 days of the online self-development program, and complete the Special OPS required, World Peace Initiative Foundation selection committee will make an interview appointment based on your performance, available fund as well as group combination in the fellowship.
