People to People Dialogue for Peace & Prosperity
On
AUGUST 8, 9, 10, 11
At
ASIA PLATEAU
CONFERENCE CENTRE OF MORAL RE-ARMAMENT (MRA)
PANCHGANI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA

"When I dream alone, it is just a dream. 
When we dream together, it is the beginning of reality."
                                                                                          .. Brazilian Proverb

Why do we need to a people to people dialogue, when heads of Government and other officials from Pakistan and India are meeting to find solutions to Indo-Pak conflict?

While, agreements between India & Pakistan, like the Indus Water Treaty have had many positive effects, many other past meetings like Tashkent, Shimla, Lahore and others, have not been able to remove the seeds of deep hatred and suspicion between the two countries for over 50 years.

The conflicts have cost more than a million lives and billions of rupees on both sides. This scarce resource could have been used for food, shelter, water and education for impoverished people, constituting the majority in both the countries.

About the Dialogue

The conference is aimed at bringing together seriously committed people, like yourself, in a very inspiring setting. We will seek the guidance of the universe in silence to help us heal the divide between our nations.

We will also use tools like Scenario Planning Process of conflict resolution and Open Space Technology to structure the proceedings, while at the same time giving space for Inner guidance and spontaneous meetings.

This conference is the outcome of a deep longing for healing and peace in the sub-continent. We wholeheartedly invite you to join us in this inspired endeavour.

A people to people dialogue is intended to create an inspired and practical atmosphere, in which creative alternative can be developed from a deeper space, for the collective good without worrying about political posturing. Politicians' hands can be strengthened if trust and a shared vision are created, where people can see the benefit of give and take. This might enable politicians to reach a resolution. Moreover, some ideas for action can be presented to them, while they also attempt to resolve the conflict in a manner, which is acceptable to the majority of the people of both the nations.
