About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace Links Up with the Create Peace Project

12seconds for Peace is in the process of linking up with the Create Peace Project; an 'arts-for-peace-education non-profit organization' based in San Francisco, California. CPP is the brainchild of Ross Holzman, who is it's founder and executive director and who has asked 12seconds for Peace to contribute to and partner with CPP over the 'Capture Peace' video component of their new educational resource: an arts for peace curriculum.

This is the Creat Peace Project mission statement:

Create Peace Project is an arts-for-peace-education non-profit organization. Through our work with people of all ages, our mission is to foster self-awareness, strengthen communities, and spread peace through creativity on a global scale. We achieve this by facilitating collaborative arts workshops and promoting positive peace practices through our arts-for-peace projects.

It is this commitment to the arts, along with the fundamental commitment to the fostering and building of peace in the world, that makes 12seconds for Peace and the Create Peace Project such ideal partners.

You will see the results of this link-up over the coming months as 12seconds for Peace contributes and develops a presence in partnering with the CPP over their 'Capture Peace' educational resource. For now, here are two videos that will give you a good idea of what the CPP are all about:

12seconds for Peace - An Interview with Talent Spotlight Magazine, January 2011

It was with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I recently accepted the chance to do an interview for Talent Spotlight Magazine with the magazine's founder; Jessica Gilbert. Ranging across my work as a writer and artist and my involvement with Reiki and of course the motivations and creation of the global peace phenomenon '12seconds for Peace', Jessica's interview covers a lot of ground and I hope that you find it as interesting to read, as I did to do.

Talent Spotlight Magazine, launched in November 2010, is rapidly making it's mark as a beacon of progressive and dynamic arts coverage. If you are interested in the arts, then TSM is a great place to stay abreast of what is happening around the globe. You will find a plethora of artists covering many disciplines in this and previous issues and you can read the January issue of TSM by clicking the link here: Talent Spotlight Magazine.

Below is the promo video for the latest - January issue of TSM.

Much metta,
