Inside Peace – September 2018 in Ottawa

Français

 

 

INSIDE PEACE, the MOVIE,
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 29 2018, 7 pm

Free entrance. Click on the picture above to view the film's trailer.

With great pleasure, Peace Is Possible Ottawa/Gatineau invites you to a free viewing of the multiple award-winning documentary film ‘Inside Peace’, which is being presented at the University of Ottawa by Cinema Academica, as part of the Ottawa Peace Festival 2018

The showing will be followed by a discussion on issues raised by the film. Our guest, hip-hop artist Raphaël Desil (aka Moun Fou), will join us to share his experience of rehabilitation.

The documentary illuminates the transition that takes place within prisoners’ lives after attending a 10-week Peace Education course given at the Dominguez State Jail, San Antonio, Texas. The course seems to have a profound effect on individuals by encouraging them to de-escalate and take responsibility for their own personal situations & lives. 

The prisoners in the film share their insights into the social and emotional forces that sent them onto the wrong path and offer the uplifting message that everybody has the possibility to change their lives around, no matter how difficult their situation. ‘Inside Peace’ follows several of them after their release and shows the challenges ex-inmates face in their efforts to reintegrate into society.

This non-religious/non-sectarian Peace Education Program is being successfully implemented on a global scale at correctional facilities and other suitable venues in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. Peace Education courses have now been held in 81 countries and 37 different languages. At the end of 2017, over 7000 people in correctional facilities were participating in them.

Please take a moment to review the attached poster.

Stephen de Lorimier runs marathons to make a difference

Français

Stephen en action

Stephen de Lorimier is an architect and long-distance runner from Montreal in Quebec, Canada. Below he shares his perspective on running marathons to raise money for The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF).

At 62 years of age, I am grateful to have a good job and to be in good health. I love exercising, and I used to swim a lot before taking up running about six years ago. Last winter I had the idea to turn my races into a fundraising project for TPRF.

Stephen RunningIt’s a challenge for me to spread the word so people know they can contribute and support TPRF in this way. I announced my project on Facebook and communicated to my friends through messages and emails. I very much appreciate everyone who donates!

Here is the link where people can show their support on my TPRF fundraising page.

Do you have a creative idea for how you’d like to have fun raising money for TPRF? Visit this page for more information about how you can make your idea a reality.

Ottawa – Gatineau : St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser for the Kifubon Project

Français

Harp Benefit-Concert

Dear Friends,

This is an invitation to attend a benefit concert on the evening of Saturday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) to support the Kifubon book-giving project.

Over the last few months, a group of Canadian volunteers have been distributing free copies of Prem Rawat’s ‘Splitting the Arrow’ to Correctional Institutes and other worthy recipients across Canada.

Members of the Peace is Possible Ottawa/Gatineau team received fifty of these books from the Japanese publisher Bunya, most of which went to the federal penitentiary in Cowansville, Quebec, where they were gratefully received by prisoners.

Our St. Patrick’s Day benefit, which is being held to raise funds so we can continue helping this very worthwhile effort, will feature Irish music, storytelling and a chance to catch up with each other over refreshments. 

We hope that you will support this event. And bring your friends!
