Part 1: June 16th at Third Street Center, 520 S. Third Street, Carbondale
Growing a culture of peacemakers may be an essential step in our way forward out of the fear, separation and isolation created by the pandemic with its multitude of side-effects and the socio-political schism that has set its claws into our families and communities.

Join Barbe Chambliss for an interactive session exploring stories of women peacemakers that Barbe chronicled in her book Women Peacemakers: What We Can Learn from Them.

You will learn that there are roles of peacemaking that are non-traditional, that are commonly overlooked by our ideas about what peacemaking looks like.

It isn’t enough to talk about peace.
One must believe in it.
And it isn’t enough to believe in it.
One must work at it. – Eleanor Roosevelt.

This evening’s program will prepare you to join in a day long exploration of your role as a conscious peacemaker supported by nature – water, tree and rock – on the 7th Elder, Canyon Creek, Colorado on Saturday, June 18th 9:30 am to 4:40 pm.
Hosts for the day are Barbe Chambliss author, Sonja Linman, steward of the land at 7th Elder.

About the land where we’ll be gathering: 7th Elder on Canyon Creek, hosted by Sonja Linman.
Situated upon three acres of land in Canyon Creek, Glenwood Springs, 7th Elder, is a sacred place to “Serve Our Servants.”
7th Elder is home to the Linman family, where they tend spaces for learning, meditation, gathering and celebration. And, where they honor the land as our oldest ancestor; from before humanity, from within all times of the indigenous Nuche people, and into our shared lives together. Explorable spaces including a Study Library, Sharing Space, Yoga Circle, Peace Garden, Labyrinthe Paths and Wide Open Fields invite you to bring sturdy shoes and an open heart.

Barbe Chambliss Bio:
Barbe Chambliss is a psychotherapist and mediator who currently resides in Paonia, CO. In the midst of interviewing women peacemakers around the world, she volunteered to work in Croatia with children who had barely survived the Bosnian War. This experience changed everything for her in her personal and professional life. Now her purpose is to wake up the conscious peacemaker in as many people as possible.

In past years Barbe directed the volunteer Center for Conflict Resolution in Aspen, Colorado. She has taught mediation to over 500 children and adults in rural Colorado schools. She cureently facilitates Restorative Justice Circles in her community.

The culmination of her interviews with ordinary women who were doing acts of peacemaking in communities around the globe was synthecized into the book Women Peacemakers: What You Can Learn from Them published in 2000. Barbe now uses the book as a tool for teaching school children about the art of peacemaking and mentoring them in applying the skills to their lives at home and at school.

About our host and sponsor: The Center for Human Flourishing invites individuals and communities to engage in opportunities for growth that ignite the full potential of the human spirit.
