Sector 5: Peacebuilding & Relations

The Peacebuilding & Relations Sector focuses on establishing a global Culture of Peace by teaching principles of social justice and modeling compassion for all. The Virginia HUB affirmatively supports the beauty of racial diversity, the preservation of indigenous cultures, the need for universal gender equality, and the full acceptance of sexual orientation. This Sector also provides training in alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as Spiral Dynamics, Integral Theory, Sociocracy, and Polarity Theory. As an additional Peacebuilding resource, our good friends at The Shift Network have provided us with a link to their World Peace Library. The “heart” of the Peace Pentagon is dedicated to this critical Sector.

Empowered Women Jun 09, 2017 to Jun 11, 2017 Women's Empowerment Workshop

All women are reflections of the Divine Feminine (though sometimes we need to be reminded of this fact). Early man honored women for their ability to create life and give birth. Indeed, early humans paid homage to the “Great Mother” – our first monotheistic deity. Over time, however, society began to dismiss and even suppress the Sacred Feminine, causing women to lose touch with their direct connection to the Divine. Now, it is time to relearn, reclaim, and rejoice in the history, mythology, power, and presence of the Goddess!
