Creating Enlightened Society: Imagining Peace www.imaginingpeace.com
Imagining Peace was an experiential event that aims for an integrated response to violence—a response that includes broader sociopolitical influences on our homes, schools, neighborhoods, and individual states of mind. A truly complex social problem requires a truly complex response that includes the whole range of our human experience. Join us for an event that brings together the political and the spiritual.

Join Buddhist spiritual leader, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, meditation teachers Adam Lobel and Fleet Maull, the Honorable Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, the Honorable Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County Board President, and others as we discuss what peace means to us as individuals and within society.

The weekend will feature panels with regional youth who have been impacted by violence, and community and civic leaders who are working on the challenge of reducing violence. Also included will be mindfulness practice, small group discussions, student film screenings, and skits by the Goodman Theatre Company.

Participants will have the opportunity to express their own voices and to hear from others. The weekend will conclude with people collaborating to offer recommendations that can contribute to the work of preventing violence in our communities.

The Imagining Peace Conference will happen Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28 in Chicago, IL
