Peace StudiesEducation for the Third Millennium
The School of Metaphysics is a 501(c)(3) educational and service institution with 17 locations across the central United States. Peace studies are an integral part of our course of study in that they expand one’s sense of compassion, responsibility, and connection with all others.
“For millennia we have contemplated, reasoned, and practiced the idea of peace. Yet the capacity to sustain peace eludes us. To transcend the limits of our own thinking we must acknowledge that peace is more than the cessation of conflict. For peace to move across the face of the earth we must realize, as the great philosophers and leaders before us, that all people desire peace.”
-The Universal Peace Covenant

Each tile is enthused with a thought of peace and laid by hand. When completed, those who visit the dome will be in the presence of over 10,000 thoughts of peace created by people of all ages, backgrounds, and countries across the world.
