Mission statement 

We, The Women of Peace acknowledge that our peace is the the key to the worlds peace. We gather as a force of commitment to a world with less violence, aggression, scarcity and struggle. We stand for a world United in love, compassion, abundance, generosity, service, and joy. We assembly to celebrate our power rooted in peace, we share tools of peaceful resilience, we open our hearts and our gifts to our sisters, we honor those women who are being forces of healing, peace, and harmony on this earth. We plant seeds of intention and action to be sacred leaders in our own right. 

Vision

We, The Women if Peace, learn to cultivate peace within and from this inner peace, we walk in peace, accepting only love and peace into our lives and assisting the transmutation of anything other than peace to peace. We believe that as peace we become the soil of healing and love to the world. The better we become at being peaceful the more we trust ourselves, we trust we speak from love, we trust we respond with truth and conviction, we trust what we deserve and do not settle or step back, we trust we can give from a place of abundance, we trust our voice is needed and is to be taken seriously, we trust we can make a bigger difference in this world.

As women our peace has a different quality than men. It is not stagnant, or still, nor does it have a baby blue quality to it. Instead the peace of the feminine, a quality of peace desperately needed on the planet, is dynamic and self soothing and harmonizing. The feminine representation of peace is vibrant, colorful, rich, nourishing, alive and in itself a breathing force of nature. The Women of Peace gather with intention to bring more this feminine peace we are now learning to cultivate within ourselves out to the world, restoring balance and contributing to a new landscape where all people can live safer, happier, and more free.
