SingPeace! Earth Pilgrimage for Peace & Global Harmony, the Whidbey Institute and Aldermarsh are honored to host the BePeace Course and its founder, Rita Marie Johnson, offering a full-service retreat that includes accommodations and meals. Give yourself the gift of taking a "time out" from a too-busy life, to truly imbibe "BePeace".
BePeace is a 32-hour experiential course that teaches individuals of all ages easy-to-learn techniques to master the power of heart wisdom through scientifically proven methods, a practice which combines HeartMath, a biofeedback method for “feeling peace,” and Nonviolent Communication, for “speaking peace.” BePeace brings together the essence of each in a powerful, synergistic approach for increased effectiveness and creative, peaceful living. We are delighted that BePeace Foundations Course creator, Rita Marie Johnson, will be the instructor for the first of these courses offered in the Northwest region.
SingPeace! offers the "celebratory component" with singer/songwriters, Sharon Abreu and Mike Hurwicz.
BePeace creator, Rita Marie Johnson, has received acclaim as an international peacemaker. Founder of the Academy for Peace and the Rasur Foundation, in Costa Rica, Rita Marie has recently returned to the United States after 17 years. Since her return in 2009, Rita Marie has initiated BePeace in eleven states and in Canada, Europe and Central America. Rita Marie teaches at the United Nations University for Peace, is on the Advisory Board of the National Peace Academy, and she was a keynote speaker at the 2009 Student Peace Alliance Department of Peace Conference in Washington, D.C.
