Weaving a Culture of Peace proposes a new paradigm for peace, one where peace is considered as a presence of just and faithful relationships, and offers important insights for valuing, promoting, protecting, and preserving a culture of peace for all people of the world.
Weaving a Culture of Peace, by Jacqueline Haessly, Ph.D., proposes a new paradigm for peace, one where peace is considered as a presence of just and faithful relationships with one's self, with others within the family and the community, with all others within and among nations, with all of creation, and with a Spiritual Being/Higher Power/Wisdom Source who both gives life and gives life meaning. Part One examines past and current definitions and conceptions of peace, and offers a new paradigm for peace for the Twenty-first Century. Part Two examines personal and public values that ground a culture of peace. Part Three explores images and language usage that can promote a culture of peace, systems, structures, and policies that can protect a culture for peace, and education and actions that can help preserve a culture of peace for today and future generations. The book includes an introduction, an afterward, appendices, and an extensive bibliography.
