The Peace School is a non-profit educational organization established in Chicago in 1972. Our mission is to help people of all ages practice peace in everyday life. By attaining peace in mind, body and spirit, we create the foundation for a broader peace in our families, schools, communities, nations and world. The Peace School’s unique blend of meditation, peace yoga, traditional martial art and peace breathing helps us achieve this.
In 1978 we founded Peace Day in Chicago and have cooperated with the U.N. International Day of Peace (IDP) since it was established in 1981. For many years we’ve provided Peace Day materials to every Chicago Public Schools so students can engage in peacebuilding activities on the IDP. Our annual Peace Day events celebrate the diversity of our city and world and call on people to take positive action for peace in daily life. In all we do we are dedicated to building world peace, one person at a time.
