Welcome to Centerpeace Project.


In communities around the world, where women, men and children have been subjected to violence, where they have lost their loved ones, their home, or their dignity, a kind of trauma happens. This type of trauma creates either victims of violence, bystanders or perpetrators of violence and hate.Trauma is also passed down from generation to generation and violence and hatred continue to plague the people and the land. But there is a powerful way to stop these patterns of violence. To give people the opportunity to heal the trauma, to learn to forgive, to develop inner peace and to fuel one’s energy into creating a more peaceful and sustainable future is the work of the Centerpeace Project.Contact us and become part of the solution!

The Centerpeace team targets a threshold community around the globe and makes connections with the right individuals interested in bringing the project to their community. Once the agreement has been made, the team travels to the targeted sites for a duration of six weeks to set up the program.

Team members work closely with the elders, teachers, healers, volunteers, and community members of these communities alongside Western trained therapists, educators, volunteers and healers together under one roof. During the six weeks, the team hires and trains the local staff to run each satellite site.

Once the program is up and running Centerpeace team leaves the site and the staff and local community members take over.


The children and young adults will be taught the necessary tools for:

  • Effective interpersonal communication
  • Conflict management and resolution
  • Empathy building

The healing center at each site will provide services to the children, young adults and their families. Services include…

  • Trauma Counseling
  • Mediation
  • Yoga and meditation classes
  • Healing Circles
  • Prayer, chanting, drumming and other native rituals

The nutritionist at each site will teach the children and their families about healthy foods, nutrition, diet and exercise.

The garden at each site will grow and provide locally grown organic fruits and vegetables to the children.


Technology plays a key role in the formation, running, connecting and creating revenue for the centers. Our different centers around the globe will be virtually linked. Young adults will be in continuous communication via the web to share and discuss their projects and community work. All art work and projects pertaining to healing and peace building will be highlighted and show cased online. Selected children’s art work and group projects will be available for sale online.


The centers are set up to work with volunteers who come to teach or participate in the programs year round. Register to become a volunteer!
