Are you a young African peace leader? Are you ready to make the world a better place? Peace Revolution would like to invite you to participate in the 4th Amandla Youth Fellowship for East and Southern Africans in Kigali, Rwanda.
Every revolution starts with rebels, and this one is no exception. Peace Rebels are individuals who question the concept of happiness that comes from external sources, such as possessing more items, travelling to more countries, getting new job titles, being with that particular person and others. Realizing that this kind of happiness is impermanent, moreover it often causes illusion, frustration, sadness, and danger.
“Peace Rebels” start searching for a true happiness inside leading by example and joining 42 days of Peace Revolution's self-development program. They are willing and courageous enough to swim against the tide of popular opinion and understand why non-conformity, although difficult at times, can produce change. They are true rebels because they know that world peace through inner peace is possible.
While on the program, Peace Rebels are encouraged to step outside the box, challenge conventional wisdom, and make a difference in the world around them. After completing the program, Peace Rebels are eligible to apply for the International Youth Training in Thailand to deepen their meditation practice and develop more mindfulness.
What would you do when you discover a tool that guides you to discover who you truly are? A tool that grounds you to embrace happiness and peace from deep within you? Peace Agents are Peace Rebels who have undergone intensive 14-day training in Thailand and now possess the knowledge of what peace really is, why we need it, and how to obtain it.
They and are ready to be an ambassador of peace, being the example and champion of peace in their communities. Their tasks are to cultivate peace within themselves and share it to others under the Peace-In Peace-Out (PIPO) process through Online Meditation and PIPO-on-demand. Some Peace Agents will be chosen to represent the Peace Revolution project as country coordinators and regional coordinators.
