On a beautiful weekend in July a group of women of diverse ages, backgrounds and experiences came together in London for a life-changing event.

We all have our own definition of peace, be it political, international, personal or religious.  The Creators of Peace Circle enabled us to contemplate the word ‘peace’. Our minds became focussed. We debated what builds and destroys

peace. We told our stories and shared life experiences. We learned how to listen to ourselves and others without judgement. We discussed the qualities of a peace creator and the power of forgiveness and spent valuable time in silence.

Above all I made friends for life amongst people I only met for two days. The willingness and openness of all who took part to talk about themselves was something I had never come across. In this women’s Peace Circle an environment was created whereby personal walls came down on the first day. The love and support and kindness of my fellow group members is what will remain with me and I hope with them, rippling out into our worlds to bring the same love and support and kindness and above all peace, to all of those we touch.
