The Universal Peace Covenant was created in 1996-7 by over two dozen spiritual teachers whose ancestral roots span the world. The timeless wisdom in the 577-word document serves as an instrument defining how to think peacefully and live peaceably in a world that is constantly changing. Read the Covenant with people around the world New Years Eve each year.

Spiritual Community Gatherings

At libraries and schools, in cafes and temples, people gather to discuss what makes for peace.  The Interfaith Community of Metaphysics (ICOM) provides space for people to slow down, come together, be in mind, and connect. Read an article from Java Journal about one such gathering in St. Louis, Missouri in 2014, just weeks after the shooting in Ferguson.

Peace Studies

Education for the Third Millennium

The School of Metaphysics is a 501(c)(3) educational and service institution with 12 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.

The Invitation

The Invitation is a play that brings together 8 Nobel Peace Laureates, and answers the question, “How do we create peace in our world?”  See the performance schedule, meet the laureates, and find out how to bring The Invitation to a city near you.

Universal Peace Covenant

Inspired during the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 1993, the Universal Peace Covenant was created by School of Metaphysics teachers and leaders so that people everywhere have a living, dynamic image of peace.

Lessons in Peacemaking

From universal harmonics to global delegations, our Peacemaking Lessons offer first-hand experiences with living peaceably and thinking peacefully.


“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.”
