Practicing Peace: Theology, Contemplation, and Action
How do we integrate head, heart and hands in our practice of peace in the everyday life of family, workplace, and community? This is a question which Michael Wood, an Anglican Priest, coach and facilitator, explores in his book, “Practicing Peace: Theology, Contemplation and Action”. Although Michael has written primarily from a Christian perspective, with churches and Christian leaders in mind, the conversation may be of interest to anyone who is thinking about how to take an integrated approach to peacemaking and nonviolent leadership in everyday life. Michael was a founding member of the Peace and Nonviolence Education Australasia Network www.peaceandnveducation.org and has led an online Contemplative Prayer community. He was Anglican Chaplain to the University of fifteen years and currently works as Community Chaplain with an Anglican Church in Melbourne.
