believes all people wish for peace, but very few really understand how
to create that state of peace. In her latest book, 'The Loving Heart:
Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace', she offers practical
instruction for both individuals and the larger world community
[Franklin, MI April 11, 2011] Combat in Afghanistan, war in Libya, fighting
between Israelis and Arabs – all these occur under the guise of
creating peace and freedom, but can true peace ever come about as the
result of endless armed conflict? Of course not; yet many believe it
can. Individuals often prefer to hand the responsibility for peace off
to groups such as the military or a government. But what can
we do personally - right where we stand now - to make a difference? Dr.
Laurie Pappas, author of 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from
Conflict to Peace' offers the only real path to creating peace, both on
a personal level and on a global scale. Not only does she offer real
answers, she also provides practical instruction on how to eliminate
anxiety and fear, and to create hope, happiness and ultimately the
state of peace.
"The conflict in our own minds," stated Dr. Pappas, "contributes to the
conflict in our global world because we’re all connected by earth and
spirit. Peace begins within. American democracy is the envy
of many in the Middle East and elsewhere; understandably, for American
democratic society is as good as is gets. But could we do
better? True freedom is found within the mind when we learn
to see each other through the eyes of forgiveness and
compassion. This is the message of the Dalai Llama, whose
voice has been desperately needed during his reign."
Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the
Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook
entitled 'The Loving Heart Companion'. Dr. Pappas has included over 30
years of observation and wisdom gained from personal experiences, as
well as working with students, clients, family members and colleagues.
“Peace,” continued Dr. Pappas, "is an elusive term. We talk
about it, think about it and pray about it, but it often seems to
escape us. I wrote these books to provide an understanding and a
practical pathway to the 'peaceful living' enigma. Not only
do these books offer user-friendly exercises to add practicality to the
concepts described, but also personal stories, which demonstrate the
effectiveness of utilizing such exercises. When the reader is finished
studying the books and doing the exercises, they will then possess a
'tool box' filled with effective instruments for peaceful, harmonious
living. At any time of need, they can access their tool box
and return to a state of peace."
Dr. Pappas offers phone and in-person spiritual and metaphysical
counseling, in addition to life coaching, classes, workshops, speaking
engagements and teleclasses. Her teleclass schedule for Spring 2011 is
