Rooted in Peace An Inspiring Story of Finding Peace Within By: Greg Reitman

Rooted in Peace is a book for those who want to cultivate peace within themselves. Join filmmaker and author Greg Reitman as he shares the transformative power in taking notice of the world we live in, stopping the cycle of violence, and proactively seeking ways to find personal and social balance. Providing advice from environmentalists, spiritual teachers, and those who deeply understand the links between head and heart, this book shares inspiration for engaging with your own sense of inner peace. Featuring interviews with luminaries and activists such as Al Gore, Desmond Tutu, Deepak Chopra, Pete Seeger, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and many others, Rooted in Peace offers wisdom for your journey toward compassion and enlightenment.

ROOTED in PEACE challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings. Today we are at war within ourselves, with our environment, and with the world. Director and award-winning filmmaker Greg Reitman invites viewers on a film journey to take notice of the world we live in, proactively seek ways to find personal and ecological peace, and stop the cycle of violence.

The film relies not only on memoir, but also interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love, and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Noble Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, media mogul Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, green architect William McDonough, neuroscientist Dan Siegel and many others. Reitman learns from all of them, and heeds Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s words, that if the forest is to be green, every tree must be green; if there’s going to be Peace on earth, then everybody needs to experience that quality of Peace within themselves. And so in asking viewers to do the same, Reitman poses the basic question: How do we want to live? Reitman’s journey is an example of transformation — how one person can learn to make the necessary changes to enjoy a better life — and in so doing inspire others to want to improve their own lives, and society as a whole.

Quotes from this Video:

“It is a great virtue and a tremendous step in our evolution to be able to be in a room by our self and be happy. That is no small accomplishment, nor should it be diminished. It is an amazing thing – to be at peace with yourself.”

“The you who is okay even when you’re not okay is an important discovery in spirituality.”

“Part of the proof of having a deep experience of revelation is not that you never have a challenging experience or emotion, it’s that they all happen within this space of absolute okayness.”

In the mid-nineties, Isa began developing Depth Hypnosis as she entered into clinical practice. Her studies, both in academia and in the field, of cultural and linguistic anthropology, comparative religion, and transpersonal psychology formed the basis of her approach with clients and students. As the body of work that grew out of her clinical practice became larger, she began teaching others so that more people could benefit from the techniques she had developed. In order to accommodate the number of classes that grew out of this process, she co-founded the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, which is now a school for consciousness studies in Berkeley, California, serving hundreds of students each year. Isa teaches and speaks nationally and internationally, and she has published numerous articles, podcast episodes, and videos, and the book Return to the Great Mother. She maintains a private practice with institutions and individuals in Depth Hypnosis and Coming to Peace processes. Isa speaks five languages and has lived in eleven countries. She is the mother of two children and lives with her partner in San Francisco.

THE INNER PEACE EFFECT By Deane Thomas

OCTOBER 4, 2017

How can we possibly play an integral role in global peace when our own world seems to be in such disarray? On the surface it seems a bad news story is permanently happening, and this filters into our day-to-day mindset. Not to despair we are here to share a beautiful insight to how we are making a contribution to good news! Our mindset not only shapes our own internal patterns and state of mind but also reflects how we relate to the outside world.

Each of us has our own unique life journey and how we interact with Mother Earth and each other. When we look outside, in many ways we see little progress towards serious issues that affect the planet and her citizens. Today, we are able to make a far more positive contribution, by reaching peace within our self.

Peace within conveys a particular energy to the outside world. After all, we are all part of the collective consciousness. When we make positive choices in our own lives, this immediately is converted into an energy, which ripples outward. As the energy flows outward, within us, we become far more aware and conscious of all that is.

A shift in consciousness is happening across the globe, yet we very rarely hear about it. Modern day technologies allow us to connect with other like-minded individuals, bypassing mainstream media. This is a tool that is being utilized far more, by awakened souls, to convey their messages. Switching off the television, or not reading the news, is one sure way to hook into the higher consciousness. In reality, not listening to the noise, allows our mind to seek something far more powerful.

Inner peace is not something that is achieved overnight; it is a process that, in many ways is a game. The game is played between the mind and heart/soul which is literally all within our self. We begin to reach the very core of our life, and remove anything that is not our own truth. Simultaneously, we open up to the powerful energies within, to truly transform our life path. It is a free will choice, as always, the way in which we choose to live our lives.

With so many imbalances in the world today, and the lack of true solutions by the powers that be, it is in our own power to make a change in the balance. Each day we can contribute to ending global poverty and other serious issues, by making an action. Whether that be to take a walk in a park to call in the energies of Mother Nature, or to make simple changes in our living habits. Taking responsibility for our own contribution is an assertion, that will impact others lives. As more of us make these conscious choices and focus on inner peace, rather than global peace, we are sending a message.

Inner peace sets us free from the mainstream but does not prevent us from living a normal productive life. In fact, our lives become full of positive manifestations and self-abundant. Maintaining inner peace will be a daily task and one that will represent the best investment ever. Dedicating time and energy to ourselves is an investment and one we shall make sooner rather than later.

The changes necessary all begin with our actions and choices on a daily basis, ones that will bring amazing returns and rewards. What better way to create a positive impact in our lives, and that of others. Positive changes that do not rely on money or technology – just our own true self! Reward yourself and others around the world, and invest a little time and energy towards Inner Peace. It will be the best investment you have ever made – because Inner Peace is a priceless commodity!

About the author: Deane has created unique personal development programs for those who are awakening and wish to make a smooth transition to the new templates. He has a passion and in-depth understanding of past life memory, its interpretation and how to address this in current life. To understand who we are today, we need to get to grips of who we have been – through unraveling the truth within, we can create a new template for the way we live our lives – in truth!

Adyashanti & Mukti – Living from Peace

Published on Sep 21, 2017
In this special Open Gate Sangha broadcast, Adyashanti and Mukti introduce our new Peace Room Project and its intentions. Together, they explore their shared commitment to bring forth teachings on the lived experience of being an embodiment of peace in the world.

Video Excerpted from “Embodying the Nature of Peace”:

Quotes from this Video:

“The enlightened view shows us that each thing and each being is of infinite value. Each being and each thing is a manifestation of God, of the divine, and when we really see this — not just as an idea or a concept — it’s a way of falling in love with the world, with all of its imperfections.” –Adyashanti

“A wonderful contemplation that relates directly to peace is ‘How might I orient in my life to a sense of what I regard as meaningful and precious?’” –Mukti

“The Peace Room is about how we interact with all of life, and bringing the more enlightened way of being into the world.” –Adyashanti

“One of my focuses is really to help those who are listening into a sense of attunement to what is valuable, into a journey of greater consciousness and direct experience, into knowledge through our being of what is important, and how to recognize that, nurture that, and bring it forward.” –Mukti

This Moment Is the Perfect Teacher, Part 1

Can we actually block the process or the speed of the process of consciousness working in our lives?

When we make peace our primary concern, explains Eckhart, we begin to free ourselves from the “problematic world” and open to higher consciousness.
