Pushing for Peace is a global network of peace practitioners, aka peace games ambassadors, working in under resourced communities to foster peace & joy.

Our Peace Games children’s program simplifies Tai Chi, playing with ideas like active listening, empathy and conflict resolution.

The Peace Partnership Project is both cerebral and physical, and explores the concepts behind each Peace Game. Participants learn how to achieve higher states of being, and share their feelings & thoughts in a circle of trust,.

Both programs stimulate Qi flow, build emotional intelligence & fight violence.

Our adults program combines verbal communication with the fundamentals of Tai Chi & Qigong. We use The Empathy Set, 2 decks of vocabulary cards that allow students to express their feelings and emotional needs with positivity, support & acceptance. 

Release physical & emotional stress and strengthen your connection to yourself & others in this 120 minute group course.
