Join us July 22 & 23 for our 
Seventh Annual Peace Conference
What?
Since its inception in 2011, the Peace Conference at Rolling Ridge has become an important platform for healthy dialogue and inspirational hope. Diverse speakers over the years have addressed issues of peace-making, Earth tending, and inter-faith reverence. In a confusing political and social climate, now more than ever, people need a safe space as we seek understanding, harmony, and change.

This year, Rolling Ridge will address the topic of peace in the political process at our 7th annual Peace Conference, entitled "Speaking Out, Listening Deep: Spiritual Grounding for Political Action." During the Saturday afternoon plenary, Dr. Robert Jonas, Director of The Empty Bell, will focus on the inner work that needs to be done so that we may be faithful to our call to speak out against political, social, and racial injustices. Sunday afternoon workshops will feature training in mobilization and spiritual practices, with experienced faith leaders offering their insights. A closing interfaith prayer for peace will round out the conference and send people home inspired and equipped to work for peace.
 
For the past 6 years, the Rolling Ridge Peace Conference was held on Monday evening with dinner and a plenary Because of the national energy generated by the current presidential administration, we felt it was imperative to expand this year's event to a full weekend with a larger selection of inspirational and practical resources to equip people for political action.
