I have been teaching the practice of Council, a group communication process of deep listening, to Arabs and Jews in Israel and Palestine for the past seven years. I am now helping start an Arab/Jewish youth program.
Why I want peace:
Peace in the Middle east is a critical need for the peace of the World. If peace is achieved there, then anything is possible!

Dear Leon, i' m glad i saw your picture turning round on the top! So i came here to read your interesting profile. The world (especially such a region as the middle east) needs people like you. Wonderful, that you develop an Arab Jewish youth program. I am sure that is one of the most effective ways to let peace grow.
Have you heard of www.virtuesproject.com ? Already in 1991 it was initiated by a couple (psychotherapists) and another person from Canada. It was a reaction to the growing violence around them. This project offers very concrete tools for letting the individual personality / charcter blossom. There are very easy going exercises and games, that can be practised in families, schools and any groups (also companies). I only came in contact with it some weeks ago, and last weekend i took part in a two days seminary, as i want to use these tools for projects in schools and lateron (for spreading it) to integrate it in training programs for teachers.
Thank you, Leon, for being and sharing here!
Sunny greetings from an awakening morning in Cologne!
