You Can Spread Peace in All Relationships


We write about successful relationships from our own experience and from our talks and interviews with other happy couples. At the same time we feel the practices that we share can be applied to all relationships and that this is a path toward spreading peace in the world.

This is not something that happens overnight, and certainly it is more challenging with strangers and those who we have trouble identifying with. Nevertheless, we believe it is the way forward, and the best starting point is our closest relationships: partnerships, friendships, extended family.

Talk on Entheogens

Jacqueline Lopez has organized another EntheoMedicine Talk and Networking Event this coming Friday, April 27, 2018.
Robert Forte is a renowned, authoritative and experienced entheogenic pioneer. He brings to life the background behind the current revival of science-based research on psychedelics and growing public awareness.
Forte will explore the entheogenic capacity for healing body and mind, and the role these substances can play in creativity. The talk will also reveal past and future ways these substances can enhance our individual freedom and diminish the power of growing authoritarian governments.

Love And Making Relationships Work "On the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11, I had a discussion on my radio program with Austin yoga teacher, Jonathan Troen, about the anxiety and anger all around us that was palpable on that day, as well as throughout this election cycle. “Peacefulness starts from inside of us and then spreads. It’s contagious, just like anxiety,” said Troen. The solution, he told us, is to find a way to create tranquility within ourselves, such as through practices like meditation, yoga, or Tai-chi, in order to create peacefulness in the world. Coming from a place of stillness within helps us to make better decisions about how to overcome any obstacles in our environment and our interactions."

15 Simple Ways to Spread Happiness and Kindness Around You "A very simple way to spread more happiness in your own little world is through kindness. It’s often an easy and quick thing you can do as you move through your daily life. But we sometimes forget about it. Or don’t remember how it can help us all. Three things that I like to keep in mind and that help me to try to be a kinder person are these:"

4 Ways to Spread Peace in Your World "No matter how comfortable our lives might be materially, we can still suffer internally, unhappily living out our lives depending on the tide of our circumstances. Peace and happiness isn’t about having everything we want, but being deeply moved by the gratitude for being able to experience life. One of the best ways to spread peace in the world is to recognize your own capacity to bring peace into the little things you do every day. For, as Annie Dillard so beautifully says, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”"
