Communities of Peace was formed in 1995. Since that time, the program has been seeded in ten US communities, and projects have extended into six other countries. Thanks to the hundreds of people who have helped us, and who continue to help us, make a difference. Our volunteers include: teachers, hospital administrators and staff, doctors and nurses, school superintendents, politicians, city officials, military chaplains and officers, members of our State Department, Ambassadors and their embassy staffers. And of course, school age children across the world.
We have worked with thousands of children and many hundreds of adults to expand their experience of what is possible for them. We’ve initiated programs in the health, educational, environmental, interfaith and emergency planning areas. Our projects have included secretaries of state, many political officials, and even members of royalty.
Some projects have been presented at the United Nations and in the US congress. All of them have been personally demonstrated in ways that have brought value to the communities.
The Communities of Peace mission is grounded in making a difference. We believe this starts with helping expand people’s inner experience of who they are and what is possible for them. We also believe that it is equally important to create and support projects in the community that involve these experiences. That’s why you’ll see us create a variety of initiatives that support community involvement.
We'll be offering a new section of our "Holding the Light" 12-session online class soon. This is formed around a small group of six people. The goal is identifying with the "Light Being" that one is while clearing the restrictions that keep each one from experiencing and expressing this level. The cost is $500 for the series. Contact us at email@example.com if you're interested.
Communities of Peace is creating a movement to honor Mother Nature, in
collaboration with indigenous people from the “sacred mountain” of Sierra
Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. We believe that the understanding of our personal connection with Nature is
very important, and that your love and positive intentions will help to make a
difference at this key time.
The significance of this particular Nature area is covered in the BBC documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRgTtrQOiR0
One way of joining this collaboration is through our MOM quilt. Another is sending
your positive intention to make a specific difference to us, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Our goal (the Mission) is to bring forward the values and energy of the Mother into our world today. It’s what the world needs now – unconditional love, deep caring for all, nurturing, understanding and harmony. You’re also welcome to participate if you’re not a mother per se. We understand that the Mothering energy can be had by all; happen in many ways.
We invite you to create your own MOM quilt and join us as we add sections from creators across the land.
Our flagship project since it began when we dedicated a peace pole for the Pentagon in September 2000. It has always been focused on peace --- created by and for our children. It is now over 1/3 mile long, containing yard-square sections from thousands of children in 32 countries. Check out our video!
We know there is growing concern about climate change that is often described as “eco-grief” or “eco-trauma”. Where there is grief there is love. To help our world, we have created various workshops designed to help you experience a deeper connection with Mother Nature that will assist in healing and opening your heart. This enables you to express more of the love that You are, and to bring this love forward. Future workshops will be announced here and in our emails.
We’ve donated and dedicated peace poles at Rady Park in Warrenton, Virginia, to the mayor of Washington, DC when the city was declared a Community of Peace, at the Pentagon (where it
stands today in the prayer room), and sent one on a US military plane to the Afghan government. Hundreds of local children participated.
Imagine that someone has told you that you're beaming. What image comes to mind? Now, imagine sending a beam of white light to others, and to situations. One can call this the Christ Light, which is true. But, if that doesn’t feel comfortable to you, just picture it as white light, coming from you. Do it every time you think of it, especially when people, times and situations seem difficult. We are exploring the power of beaming. Sometimes, this is through meditation. Sometimes, it's in concert with other community members. Always, we find it results in a positive experience. If you are interested in knowing more about our evolving work with beaming, or our meditations, please email us at email@example.com and indicate “meditation”.
In Warrenton, VA, we've worked with an estimated 250 children from both public and private schools, Boys and Girls Club, scouts, homeschoolers, and the Homeless Shelter. We've taken them to embassies, the State Department, the Pentagon, and sponsored one as a delegate to a United Nations international program.
We’ve sponsored international programs between local children and children in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, and Kenya.
Gerry Eitner will be holding both First and Second degree Reiki classes during the month of April in Warrenton. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information if you're interested.
