With every true friendship we build more firmly the foundations on which the peace of the whole world rests – Gandhi
Welcome to the website of Spirit of Peace.
We hope you will enjoy this site and be inspired to become involved with our work to build inclusive communities of trust, locally and globally.
Spirit of Peace is a rapidly developing UK based charity, with a heartfelt vision to foster greater peace, understanding and equality in our global society.
Contributing to the creation of a culture of nonviolence in our fractured world it is influenced by the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr Martin Luther King and others.
We work with renowned international peace partners, the main thrust of our work currently being in the UK and the Middle East.
Our work is people and heart-centred recognising that, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”. This is a challenging prospect, but every step we take towards peace is significant, however large or small.
Many people on experiencing our work and events describe these as ’transformational’ and ‘life-changing’.
Our work is founded on heart-centred and holistic approaches to peace building and intercultural dialogue and includes:
- Contributing to the creation of a culture of peace and nonviolence
- Fostering social cohesion through multicultural and multi-faith workshops, retreats and gatherings
- Developing and disseminating principles and tools of peace building through our Pathways To Peace programme
- Providing a forum for individuals and organisations to use their gifts and skills to foster multicultural understanding, peace and social cohesion.
The context of Spirit of Peace is the growing global awareness of the interdependence and interrelationship of all life. You will find more about this in subsequent pages.
We are grateful to the following partners who have currently and previously generously supported our work.
