Traveling Peace Academy

The URI Traveling Peace Academy (TPA) brings skills training and effectiveness to the field of interfaith peace building. We are a global community not located in one country, city, or building. We develop interfaith, cross-cultural training sessions that are designed appropriately for local situations.

We have developed a process focused on building relationships and nourishing creative abilities, even in surroundings of protracted violent or non-violent conflict. Our unique training methodologies are informed by the Preamble, Purpose, and Principles of URI and by the practices of Moral Imagination, developed by renowned peace studies scholar Prof. John Paul Lederach of the University of Notre Dame and Eastern Mennonite University.
