"Peace is an environment in which we help each other become the very best we can be."

What is Finding Peace Through Spiritual Practice?
Interfaith Amigos, otherwise known as Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon, and Imam Jamal Rahman have created practices to help you find deeper spiritual grounding and sustainable peace. The Interfaith Amigos know how hard it can be to find peace when so much discord seems to rule the day, but they prove and teach that peace can prevail in all circumstances.
What was the inspiration for this peace initiative based on practice?
The Interfaith Amigos began working together after the tragedy of 9/11. They provide a unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences all over the world and offer an example of peace and unity among religions. They have created a four-week interactive online course to help you find deeper spiritual grounding and sustainable peace. Who better to lead us into peace than a Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim. They know how hard it can be to find peace in the midst of discord, but they prove and teach that peace can prevail in all circumstances.
What types of practices are being offered.
This program draws from the wisdom of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Interfaith Amigos teach specific spiritual practices designed to cultivate the kind of inner peace that will sustain you as you work for peace locally, globally, and interpersonally.
Each Amigo leads a week-long module that includes written materials, reading and writing opportunities, a 20-minute video teaching, and three spiritual practices led by all three Amigos every week. During the fourth week of the course, the Interfaith Amigos teach together in their inter-spiritual style. Participants can also meet with each other on a Student Forum to share insights and reflect on the practices in real time.
