 ZENSday: Free Meditation & Yoga!

Every Wednesday at the Peace Museum!

Meditation, understood properly, is a process to create a meditative state. Once this meditative state is achieved, where there is serenity, calmness and peace we are able to manifest the intrinsic goodness of our heart. This expression of our heart’s goodness makes peace more dynamic and life-affirming, and, in its wake, brings unity and harmony to this world. Kamlesh Patel

Part of the mission of the Peace Builder’s Experience is to recognize and celebrate Peace Heroes, which are “often an everyday person who accepts risk and succeeds in making the world a less violent and a more just place.” -Jerry Leggett, 21st Century Peace Literacy Foundation.

Ted Studebaker


Ted Studebaker


Click on the photo below to watch the video

This is the ABC News account of the story of Ted Studebaker, just after he was killed in Viet Nam in 1971. It was resurrected from partial film elements found in both the Brethren Historical Library and Archives in Elgin, IL and the Archives at Manchester College, North Manchester, IN and re-edited to replicate the original broadcast.

Ted Studebaker

Ted Studebaker (born September 29, 1945, outside of Dayton, Ohio) was a pacifist and conscientious objector who served as an agricultural worker during the Vietnam War and was executed by North Vietnam in 1971.

Studebaker was the 7th child of eight born on a farm in the small town of West Milton, Ohio. He was a devout member of the Church of the Brethren, and also excelled in sports and played football in high school as well as in college where he attended the small liberal arts school Manchester College in Indiana. He then attended Florida State University for two years pursuing his graduate degree in social work before he left for Vietnam. He also had a great love for music and was a guitarist.

While in Vietnam he volunteered with the Vietnam Christian service where he volunteered for two years working with a Montagnard hill tribe where he helped them with agricultural production. 

He was killed on April 26, 1971 by North Vietnamese when they first attacked the volunteers’ house with rockets and then invaded. The soldiers did not know who Studebaker was, they merely saw him as an American and therefore a threat and so he was executed. The lives of his wife and other volunteers were spared.
