Sector 5: Peacebuilding & Relations

The Peacebuilding & Relations Sector focuses on establishing a global Culture of Peace by teaching principles of social justice and modeling compassion for all. The Virginia HUB affirmatively supports the beauty of racial diversity, the preservation of indigenous cultures, the need for universal gender equality, and the full acceptance of sexual orientation. This Sector also provides training in alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as Spiral Dynamics, Integral Theory, Sociocracy, and Polarity Theory. As an additional Peacebuilding resource, our good friends at The Shift Network have provided us with a link to their World Peace Library. The “heart” of the Peace Pentagon is dedicated to this critical Sector.

Aug 24, 2017 Independence Women’s Huddle & URI Cooperation Circle

First We Marched
Now We Huddle

On January 21, 2017, the world co-created the largest protest in human history. Millions of people around the world marched to reinforce inalienable human rights: freedom, justice, diversity, solidarity.

But the Women’s March was just the beginning. Now the real work starts, with a special focus in our own Community … and beyond.

To build on the momentum of the Women’s March, its organizers have armed us with the resources needed to gather together in our neighborhoods and define next steps for activism and resistance.

Please Join Us!

Three local groups have unified and answered the call of advocacy to coordinate future efforts that are now urgent given our current political climate.

Over 5,000 Huddles have registered through the Women’s March in the United States and beyond. Grayson County Sewing & Resistance Society is a local group concerned about the state of our nation. URI has over 800 Cooperation Circles around the globe to address the most pressing issues facing the world and local communities.

Nov 03, 2017 to Nov 05, 2017 Conscious Relationships Retreat: Creating Inner Peace During Stressful Times

This Retreat will guide you through discovering the “Revolutionary Agreements” and integrating them in very practical ways into your life.

Participants will enjoy the group-setting and the opportunity to see how these Agreements can bring greater inner peace into our lives, and how that peace can radiate out to contribute to outer peace in the world. Moreover, many are finding the Agreements to be very helpful in these stressful times.

These simple but profound Agreements are an instruction manual for your life journey – a direct route to the inner peace that best supports you and your relationships, whether at home, in your community, and in the world. Please join us, as we experience the beauty of the Oracle Campus and the joy of growing with fellow conscious participants.

Virginia
