Inner Peace Retreat
5-7 Dec, 2014
Centrum Savita, Niedersfeld, Germany

The Inner Peace Retreat at Centrum Savita aims to facilitate positive transformation in personal and moral development. Participants will learn basic “Inner Peace Time” techniques. Supporting for cultivating goodness and virtue within each participant, they will also be encouraged to become future, active, agents-of-change. The retreat includes interactive activities, meditation & yoga sessions, lectures and discussions providing the participants with new skills for non-violentresistance, peace education, enhanced creativity and stress-management. It is based on the practice of culturing Peace Inside, the cultivation of optimism in life, and the acts of selfdiscipline. Participants will have a chance to explore meditation as a practice which can develop tools to deal with challenges within peace-building and youth work. Through the campaign, you have an opportunity to develop yourself personally, and you are also encouraged to put your passion for peace into practice by engaging your local communities.

Retreat Objectives

  • Provide the participants with the tools to inner peace and leadership skills through mindfulness, self-discipline and compassion that helps strengthen their activism and place them in meaningful work.
  • To explore the idea that self-development and inner change is a core foundation of world change.
  • To empower young people along with the moral and personal development to implement Peace In Peace Out activities around their communities.

Meditation Instructor:

Venerable Ruben Visalo (Mollij), also referred as Luang Phi Ruben, was born on June 24th, 1981 in Belgium. He studied a master’s degree in industrial engineering (biochemistry). After he started practicing meditation in 2006, he gained an increased interest in the field of meditation and personal development, and felt the need to share this wisdom with others. It was not much later that he decided to ordain as a Theravada Buddhist monk at the Dhammakaya temple in Thailand in 2008. After being involved in several projects regarding meditation, he has been invited to join Peace Revolution as a meditation instructor, and has since had a chance to share the ancient wisdom and practice of meditation in different fellowship programs both in Thailand and Europe to people from around the world in English, Dutch and French.

About Peace Revolution:

Peace Revolution is an online platform that strives to bring peace to the world by supporting individuals to find inner peace and sharing that peace with their families, friends and communities. By improving our creativity, interpersonal communication, clarity of mind, awareness, and problem solving skills, we build lasting personal strength as well as cross-cultural partnerships. Ultimately, through individual change and cooperation with others, peace will inevitably expand outwards from within to revolutionize and transform the world. The Peace Revolution project is a super highway leading to inner transformation, genuine peace, and lasting happiness. The great challenge lies in a coordinated, diligent, persevering effort designed to change the thinking and consequently the emotions and the actions to bring positive change within and around. Peace Revolution intends to initiate and foster an “evolution of consciousness” through the practice of the science and art of meditation, “Inner Peace Time”, as the principal means to developing better relationships with family, friends, and the community around us.

WPI envisions sustainable change happening when each and every one of us works towards their own self-development. Thus, we have created free and accessible tools for the empowerment and wellbeing of individuals worldwide, regardless of age, race, religion, cultural background.
