Creating spaces for beauty

This week I travelled to Port Moresby to a forum where some of the wonderful people I work with in my ‘day job’ came together from all over PNG to showcase their programs.

We support a peace building program in the Highlands and in Bougainville and I am always inspired by what is possible when people are committed to living lives of peace in the midst of very real conflict. The men who run the programs are advocates and champions for women and I loved listening to them tell their stories of personal transformation and reconciliation.

When I visited the program the highlands I was struck by the natural beauty of the place and was told that they had very intentionally crafted a lush and tranquil setting for their peace workshops with fighters because ‘beauty creates peace’.

And it does. It stills and calms us and sets the stage for healing. I’m trying to take this thought into my home and workplace this week and create spaces for beauty…

Love you to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram,
