I've just been interviewed on BBC Radio Derby, about our Peace Camp event in the Judean Desert near Jerusalem and the Dead Sea in April.
It is a non-profit service project in the Ecome Camp in Israel / Palestine with the intention to listen and learn from one another, and to generate a spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood across cultures.
The aim of the Peace Camp is to create a safe space for us to learn together, work together, and help each other overcome our fears, prejudices, and that which holds us back from peace. We welcome Palestinians, Israelis and international participants to join us. We welcome Muslims, Jews, Christians, Druze, and those of all other faiths or none.
We gather to be with and learn from one another, in the name of peace.
For 6 days & nights in the desert, let us meet each other and the places in us that hurt and grieve, and celebrate.
I’m so excited to be getting the word out about this humbling and challenging work with my fellow One Spirit Interfaith Ministers, non-violent communication trainers, and healing therapists.
My role in the Peace Camp will be to hold ceremonies for Israeli, Palestinian, and international participants, alongside other non-violent communication trainers, and qualified therapists and counsellors.
I believe that outer peace begins with inner peace, and I hope that the Peace Camp in the West Bank, and the fundraiser to support it in Burton, are small steps that we can take to have a wider impact on the world.
I feel that the camp can help us all as individuals to lead more peaceful and harmonious lives, and bring that into the wider world. I love spending time with people from all backgrounds, races, and faiths, to create more harmony within ourselves and in our relationships with others.
This service project is not-for-profit, and donations are being sought to help subsidise places for local participants. We would welcome donations to support the bursary for local participants to attend the camp, if you would like to support this project, please click the 'donate for peace' button to donate.
