New Beginnings: Peace School 2009/10

Peace school 2009/10 is fast approaching. The dates and venues for this coming year have now been set and booked, and places are beginning to be booked up. If you are looking for a space in which to explore how issues of peace and justice fit into your life; if you crave being part of a community of people asking similar questions; if you want to gain more knowledge, understanding and skills as a peacemaker, then this year’s Peace School might be exactly what you are looking for.

Peace School runs for a year, beginning with a week long summer school and followed by four weekend residentials through the year. In between those times there is an online forum and blog to continue our discussions, and some group and individual exercises to help you develop your thinking about yourself as a shalom activist. The dates and venues for 2009/10 are –

There is no set fee for Peace School, but on our website we layout our costs and ask you to keep in mind how much it costs to run the programme while you decide how much you can afford to pay. If you can’t manage to pay the averaged out cost, then we invite you to pay what you can afford. If the averaged out cost seems reasonable to you, then (and this is the hard part) we would invite you to consider paying more.
