Welcome!

I created this website to share my work on the all-important and urgent issue of peace and invite you to join me and many others in the promotion of peace at all levels—intrapersonal, interpersonal, intergroup, international, and global. 

Peace has always been—and continues to be—the most cherished quest of humanity and in our times, its realization seems to be increasingly remote. Conflict, violence, terrorism, and war rule supreme, and most of humanity’s scientific, financial, and social resources are wasted in their pursuits.

Current views on peace are based on the primacy and inevitability of human conflict and violence. At best, they focus on prevention of violence, but seldom on creation of peace. We need to have a fundamentally different understanding of the nature of peace and the requisites for its realization. And to do so, we require the courage to question current notions about peace and to consider new ideas about it. 

My more than fifty years of research and work on peace is based on the thesis that peace is a spiritual state with psychological, social, political, economic, and moral expressions. Spirituality and peace are totally interconnected and inseparable states of being. Thus, in the context of prevailing materialistic worldviews, we observe the prevalence of conflict and the absence of peace in all departments of humn life.  

In this website you can access texts and references to a number of my books, articles, essays, reports, CDs, and DVDs on the themes of peace, spirituality, and psychology, among others.  

Peace!
