The Peace Seed: Personal and Global Peace through Storytelling
Reviewed By: Anne Holmes
Reading it, I was reminded of the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. If you are not familiar with that prayer, it begins,
- Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon:
where there is doubt, faith ;
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy…
In The Peace Seed Del Boccio shares the story of mythologist Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and encourages you to become an instrument of peace through writing your own heroic story. She explains how telling and sharing your story becomes a way to bridge the human divide and in your own unique way, bring peace to the world. Pretty powerful stuff.
As you read, Del Boccio reminds you that you have within you an innate seed of greatness. Just as the mightiest tree grows from the smallest seed, big changes begin with one tiny seed — YOU!
There is more to this journey than the book. You are invited to experience additional activities via a link to a special online journal environment and the Peace Seed website. These activities call you to BE peace through human connection.
