Overview

This Caritas Path to Peace shows us the way forward. It serves as a Waymarker on the path toward human caring and peace on earth. It is an inspired work which ushers in the collective evolution of humankind, toward a new consciousness, which unites and transcends time and space and previous ways of thinking about our life and relationship with our self, each other and Mother Earth. It heightens our awakening of the great change needed at this hour for sustaining humanity at this very point in human history.
Ancient wisdom from our ancestors, current wisdom from our enlightened leaders and wisdom seekers around the globe are proclaiming the time is now. The time is now, the hour is now for the great shift which we have been waiting for, moving us toward a moral community of caring and peace. We are reminded that we hold the vision to create a world free of war and violence; we as men, women, physicians, nurses and all health care workers and caretakers worldwide, are compassionate caregivers of creation of all of life; we hold visions of love and peace and miracles in our midst. We are here to serve and to co-create a new reality to protect and help reverse the fragility of our humanity and Planet Earth.
The Caritas Path to Peace will help you create a new world for peace by utilizing the 10 steps of the Caritas Process of Jean Watson's Caring Science Institute. These 10 steps have been used for many years to train nurses in hospitals to be caring, loving, compassionate caregivers. This book is revolutionary in that it uses techniques that have been used successfully with thousands of patients in hospitals to heal, to create personal and world peace.
This book will give you the skills you need to be a Caritas peacemaker at home and in the world. It is a guidebook to take each of our lives as peaceful beings to a deeper level. First, this book invites you to become a Caritas peacemaker, second, it serves as a new paradigm workbook to help you follow through and do it. Using techniques from nursing care, psychology, healing, conflict resolution and wisdom traditions, this book will teach you how to make your life a peaceful life, at home, at work and hopefully in the world. With exercises, guided imagery, guidelines, and assignments, you can walk your own path to peace, beginning with yourself and moving on to the relationships in your life. Using the tools of Caritas, we will remake our lives and we construct a new reality.
