An extraordinary gathering of healers and storytellers is taking place on the Israel /Palestine border this April with the specific intention to cultivate peace.

I would like your support to be a part of it, so that I can write a new healing story.


PEACE CAMP BACKGROUND:
The 6 day gathering has 23 international healers meeting with 23 local Israeli's and 23 Palestinian's to dive deep into the theme of "Facing Loss, Death, Anger, Fear & Life Together".  
(Peace Camp Website link)

It will not be a summer camp, but rather a deep act of service to humanity, through the personal willingness of all involved to enter these murky waters in search of peace.

We will offer group healing and process work, non-violent communication circles, systemic and family constellation work, body-mind-spirit meditations, interfaith services morning and night…and my contribution... Bedtime Stories That Heal.

MY SERVICE OFFERING: 
I'd like to share  my healing stories..."The Boy Who Searched For Silence" as I believe the ability to "Fall Inwards" into silence is essential for all adults to begin to find peace.
NEW STORY CREATION
I will be praying deeply to receive a new story* . One that emerges from the community of this gathering and reflects  unity and healing, beyond the grief and suffering. A story of change and hope, that will serve the children of the world. (*This is how I create bedtime stories that heal)

MY BACKGROUND
At heart, I am a healer with a deep love of connection and community. I  strive to express my healership in all that I do, and really hope to attend this Peace Camp.

I have a portfolio of work that includes
- founding  The Conscious Bedtime Story Club  with 12 healing stories.
- Inspiring over 2500 poems as a PoemCatcher .
- 8 years professional training as a Spiritual healer  in Brennan Healing Science and Non-dual Kabbalistic Healing.

I also bring my willingness to be vulnerable, to learn and to be changed by the wisdom of the Israli's and Palestinian's.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?
$300 secures my place on peace camp ( I have paid this)
$300 secures a place for a local community member to attend.
$1500 covers my airfare from USA to TelAviv (airmiles may help)
Hence my Financial Target of $1800.


IF I RAISE MORE THAN I ASK FOR
Funds will go to
a) enabling more local participants (they have to leave their home and work to attend for 6 days)
b) translation of books into local languages
c) printing of books for gifts to participants

TARGET DATE
Funds for this are needed 28th February to book flights.

THANKYOU
for reading this far...
for considering donating...
for calling forward this new story.

I want to be challenged and out of my comfortzone while being deeply centered in my love of people. I think this week will do that! 

Lots of love

Special thanks to Goldie Shawel from the Evolve Conscious Parenting Community for her suggestion of Kids4peace.org. I wrote to them yesterday and I'm delighted to be invited to Jerusalem to lead a workshop for children and parents. This "Silence " thing is very catchy! http://www.k4pjerusalem.org/
