Thank you for your interest in The Interfaith Peacebuilding and Community Revitalization (IPCR) group at the PCDN ning platform.
I hope to be a good moderator, so I allowed some time to look at your profile at PCDN, and view some of your blog posts and discussions. When I arrived at the discussion post titled “Ph.D Program in Peacebuilding” (posted March 19, 2010), and read into that post, I decided that it would be most helpful for you to be in The IPCR Initiative group. I believe that whatever commentary you would like to make on discussions already posted at The IPCR Initiative group, or any posts you would like to make in that context, would be a valuable contribution, and add to the educational value of the group. So I am most happy to approve your request to join the group.
In addition to these thoughts, I would like to add that some of the descriptions in your “Ph.D Program…” post reminded me of a course description titled “Spirituality and Peacebuilding” (offered Spring, 2008 at George Mason University Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (Fairfax, Virginia, USA). The link is through the Center for the Contemplative Mind in Society, which listed course syllabi on a number of subjects. The link is http://www.contemplativemind.org/programs/academic/syllabi/Nan.pdf -- or search for spirituality and peacebuilding susan allen nan—the third listing “Sample Syllabi…”
I hope you will feel most welcome to contact me with any questions, comments, resource recommendations, etc.
Thank you very much for your remarks. Your profile is quite impressive- you are doing such a wonderful work. I have been to Chiang Mai in 2005 for a all-womans' training organised by IFOR and i fell in love with the people, the culture, the scenery and everything there else instantly! It sure is worth visiting again!
