New Teaching and Learning for Peace Foundation

The Teaching and Learning for Peace Foundation was formed in July of 2003 as a non-profit association based in Adelaide, South Australia. Its specific mission is to document, support, develop and present peace-building possibilities based upon storytelling processes to communities both locally and internationally, connecting via the Internet with the purpose of bringing adults and children together to share in the peace-building process.

Our work directly attends to the improvement of the emotional, mental, physical and social and most importantly, the spiritual well being of both adults and children in all communities. Peace-building processes involve communities directly attending to healing the dis-ease created by a lack of peace, at all levels in people’s lives. The intrinsic elements of peace-building stories are utilised by the foundation in the healing and rebuilding activities undertaken. We attend to these needs both pro-actively and reactively.

The Teaching and Learning for Peace Foundation seeks to support any adults and children in communities, both locally and internationally, who are interested in focussing their attention upon telling and sharing stories of hope and peace. These stories have happy endings in which everybody wins. We also promote the telling of good news stories. In today’s world our newspapers and televisions often share stories that are not good news or peace-building stories. Therefore to counterbalance the negativity and hopelessness we can feel we could begin telling and sharing peace-building stories and create those magical healing and transformative spaces such stories can develop. Hopefully peace-building stories will remind us that peace is possible, help us create a universal peace consciousness that will guide us as we work together to create a peaceful world for all the children and the generations to follow.
