Summer Camp Registration is Now Open for June 2017-Apply Soon as we will reach our limit soon!

Learn to Meditate

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances. (http://www.how-to-meditate.org)

TIPS Students' New Session Begins April 1

Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions

The winter 2017 session of the TIPS program wrapping up at the Dayton International Peace Museum.  The number of students has doubled since last Spring's inaugural debut of the group with students from over 15 Dayton area middle and high schools. New teens are always welcome to join!

The group meets on Saturday from 5-7:30pm at the Museum and ends every session with a 'family style' feast of good food and conversation.  Teen members are working with mentors on a challenging leadership training program in Kingian nonviolence.   In a recent meeting, Rick Polhamus, Ohio member of the Christian Peacemaker Teams,  shared stories of action and accompaniment in war zones that stretched each one's imaginative understanding of  the power of active nonviolence under the most challenging of circumstances. 

Recently, TIPS members provided leadership for World House Day and the Martin Luther King Day March.  Watch for the presence of TIPS members as they organize, speak and perform at other area events, create public art and share their discoveries through online postings and museum exhibits.  With focus , deep thought and humor, these teens take seriously Gandhi’s call for us to “Be the change we want to see in the world.”

The Voyage of the Phoenix-HURRY ENDS SOON!


The Voyage of the Phoenix-HURRY ENDS SOON!


 

Hurry Exhibit Ends Soon!

The first “Voyage of the Phoenix” is the story of how one family on a carefree pleasure cruise became socially conscious activists. Created by Wilmington College Students, the exhibit is a story of transformation. During their trip around the world the Reynolds family became aware and opposed to racial inequality, global inequality, and nuclear testing. Barbara Reynolds eventually founded the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College. This is an exhibit you’ll want to see and remember.

The Voyage of the Phoenix is on exhibit now in the central exhibit space at the Museum

 

The exhibit focuses on the 1958 peaceful protest by the family sailing into the Pacific nuclear testing zone to protest the use of nuclear weapons and the unknown dangers of radiation on people and the environment. The exhibit features original artifacts, photographs, and manuscripts from the trip.

 


The Ship

The Phoenix of Hiroshima was a 50-foot, 30-ton yacht that circumnavigated the globe and was later involved in several famous protest voyages.

Between its launch in 1954 and its sinking in 2010, the Phoenix carried a family around the world, was used to make protest voyages against nuclear weapons, was declared a Japanese national shrine, and ended up offered free on Craigslist, gutted and stripped of masts, phoenix figurehead and every identifying mark but the words "Phoenix of Hiroshima."
