Last Year’s Training

  • Took place in six languages simultaneously: English, Indonesian, Filipino, Korean, and Russian.
  • Participants came from ten countries: Indonesia, West Papua, Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, Philippines,  Aotearoa/NZ, Australia, Chechnya, UK, and the US.
  • Everyone went home with better tools, inspired and equipped to reinvigorate peace and nonviolence movements at home; practice the basic principles of peace and  permaculture at home and communities.
  • Follow-up has continued through internet consultations

What people are saying…

I am grateful for the life-changing International Peace Training I experienced in Indonesia; for the many opportunities I had to grow as a person, immersed in the Power of Goodness stories; accompanying young children and learning with them, and for the hands-on exposure to permaculture.

I am confident I can consciously implement the changes necessary for peace in my life; thus keeping me connected to those life-giving experiences…I needed to co-create courage with those around me.
-Courageous Claudia, Australia

I have now attended this AVP training twice. However, the experience I got was very different each time. In the first training, I got many valuable stories from everyone’s experience. In the second training, there were people who were the same, but there were also new people and they all came with new experiences which all enriched me. There is so much good work in me that I have to show.
