SSI Peace Class now Online
|Full Name||A few local volunteers|
This is new, and we thought it'd be good to share - an idea of how to use this time of Staying-at-Home:
To learn to use tools that build inner resilience and personal peace. We need these, right?
And it'd be a good use of extra time, yes? Learn to use tools now that can actually last a lifetime.
A few of us have been running the Salt Spring Island Peace Class, or Peace Education Program as it’s known internationally, at the Library. It's in its fifth year and one of the early graduates now hosts it. It's a powerful video series about Peace Education - tools for living strong like Choice, Inner Strength and Personal Peace.
And now the program is available as an app-based course. That means it works on any of our mobile devices.
The course is known as PEAK – Peace Education and Knowledge, and was created by the international author and speaker Prem Rawat. In a recent 12-month period, over a billion individuals around the globe listened to Prem at live events or on radio or tv interviews, and many more via recorded media.
What people find is that this PEAK program turns conventional wisdom on its head. Really! It offers perspectives on how to develop a true sense of ourselves, tap our inner strengths and build inner resilience that can last a lifetime.
The core messages are so universal - it’s like we’re being reminded of what we already intuitively know but have forgotten. The material is nonsectarian, non-spiritual and people from 14 to 104 appreciate it.
With this new self-study app you can go at your own pace. Personally, individually. No cost. Nothing to join. In fact, nobody even needs to know! You don’t even need to take notes – you get to record your thoughts/reflections in your own confidential, interactive journal.
There’s a preview with a 1-minute excerpt from Chapter 1 here:

There are nine chapters - more than six hours of video in all. They create a rich, coherent and sometimes humorous journey to deeper self-understanding and self-knowledge. From clarity to gratitude, peace to hope, each chapter is a video-packed exploration of familiar ideas from a new angle. The videos are often less than 6-minutes long, but they encourage us to rethink, reconsider, and rediscover what makes us unique.
And it’s more than just words. After the last chapter, there is an option to continue the journey and learn more about practical techniques for turning inside (spellcheck made this ‘tuning inside' which is also accurate) and uncovering the peace that’s already within us.
So again, anyone can enjoy PEAK at no charge. What you need is a mobile device, the latest version of the TimelessToday app, and a free user account. To get started, do this:
1 - Download the free TimelessToday app (which contains the PEAK course) from Google Play or the Apple App Store
2 - Or search for TimelessToday
3 - Install it and set up your free user account
4 - When you open the app, click on the drop-down menu and scroll all the way down until you see "PEAK"
5 - Go there and follow along.
