Hope Story Circle with Azim Khamisa - September 24, 2022

September 25, 2022
Azim Khamisa is living a spiritual journey following a tragedy of losing his son to gun violence; watch this NBC Nightly News Video to learn about it. His message about peace, purpose and leadership through forgiveness was heartfelt and powerful. The important news that he shares is that violent behavior is learned, and empathic and compassionate behavior is also learned. Through the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, begun in honor of his late son, he has touched hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom are young students, before they make decisions that may lead to violence. Tony, the man who was only 14 when he shot and killed Tariq, spent decades in prison and now volunteers for the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, speaking with Azim about the power of forgiveness.

Carol is a dancer, choreographer, dance teacher and director living in New York City. She brought a multi-layered story of how her three C’s — Community, Connection and Center — guide her in her current teaching paths that take her in three directions. She teaches adults with special needs, she teaches professional dancers, and she teaches high-school age kids, in three different forums each week. From her own personal history in performing, as a competitive gymnast as a child to a professional dancer as an adult, she has found that being heart-driven brings her back to these three C’s with one additional C — Consistency. Listen to this story, and feel your heart open wide. Check the calendar of Events at www.peacealliance.org - join us at our next Hope Story Circle and share your emerging stories!

Hope Story Circle with Ari Cowan - August 27, 2022

Hope Story Circle with Ari Cowan - August 27, 2022

August 27, 2022

Ari Cowan brought a multi-layered story to share, that began with his learning the practice of meditation at age 13 from his mother, who was a Yogi, and then being on a path to be an Air Force pilot at age 15. That path was not taken, and he continued in his life to be guided by meditation. A significant event was when he created the PAR model of violent behavior modification, and ran a pilot of the model at Clallam Bay Correctional facility in Washington State. He had low expectations given the circumstances under which the pilot was being run, hoping for a 2.5-5% reduction in violence. The results were an astounding 100%! Come and listen to this remarkable story, including ways to meditate for the good of all people, and the skills to execute a power swap, a key component to shifting the script of violence, which he sees as a health issue.

Hope Story Circle with Jerilyn Stapleton - August 13, 2022

August 17, 2022
Jerilyn Stapleton is a long-time friend and colleague in the Peace Alliance. She was on her way to Chicago for a National NOW conference, and had several challenges in traveling, not the least of which was inadvertently leaving her drivers license at home. Flying out of Burbank, CA, she easily used her SAG Film Society card as identification. Flying out of Chicago, however, she encountered obstacles. It’s a story of being seen, being recognized, and how much our society relies on these small pieces of paper to make each of us a real person. Thankfully, she was able to complete her travels, having met new friends along the way.
