Located in one of the most violent areas of the world, the village of San José de Apartadó has taken a radical stand in its commitment to create a peace community. They do not tolerate weapons or violence in their village and they refuse to cooperate with any of the warring factions. Since its inception in 1996, 200 members of this community have been killed. The peace village has become a role model for other peace initiatives in Colombia through its determination and courage to refuse to comply with violence. Tamera has had a close relationship with this peace village for years, including many visits, collaborations and education times at both locations, the last of which was the Grace Pilgrimage in Bogotá followed by a gathering of the Global Campus in Mulatos, a model university and village built in the middle of the jungle in Colombia. This summer ten members of the community will join the Global Campus, beginning the next step of cooperation between the projects and a continuation of the profound love story of the emerging planetary community. This six week study time will provide practical and experiential education about four basic areas of life: energy, water, nutrition and love, in addition to the basic study of real life models. This will show us the transformation and changes needed in our thinking and lifestyle to ignite the system-change from the matrix of separation and violence to the matrix of trust, solidarity and care for all that lives.
