Dear Peace Builder Friends,

In response to current events and groundswell energy, the Board of the Life Story Library Foundation invites you to participate in an in-person discussion of grassroots peace building at a special Global Coherence Peace Summit. The select gathering of leaders will take place March 6-7, 2017 at the Brookstone Social Center, 1630 East 6400 South in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This gathering brings together a diverse group of business, secular and spiritual leaders to:

  • Increase awareness of heart intelligence in developing personal and global coherence;
  • Share stories and the wisdom of our experience to connect and bridge divides;
  • Open a self-organizing exploration of new and meaningful ideas for peace building; and
  • Guide the product and services development of the Life Story Library.

QUESTIONS: What fresh insights and tools can we use with everyday people worldwide to more effectively facilitate positive and peaceful change? How can we energize the collective power of compelling human stories for the greater good?
