Peace & Leadership Day

Sunday, August 1st

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
This is the day when we become creative-empaths. We learn about peace and leadership, participate in empathy workshops, and receive training as changemakers.
We will discuss what heaven means, join the forces of our imagination, and collaboratively produce a dozen murals about our perceptions of heaven. These works will become building blocks for a fully immersive virtual reality experience.
We believe that https://vrheaven.org/ will benefit millions by providing them hope and inspiration to implement this vision in the world.
