Sept. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Coincident with the United Nations International Day of Peace, Unity Books today released a new book on what is required to truly achieve peace on earth, featuring a diverse group of contemporary peacebuilders. Let It Begin With Me: 21 Voices of the New Peace Movement is a collection of interviews amplifying the annual initiative, now in its 29th year.

“September 21 is the day we come together with a common commitment to ‘let peace begin with me.’ That is why I’m excited to introduce this collaborative book, which offers 21 perspectives on the meaning of peace and how to live it in your personal life and your community,” said author Mindy Audlin.

Audlin conducted the interviews as part of The Leading Edge, a Unity Online Radio (www.unity.fm) series she hosted from 2007 to 2009. Her guests included scientists, business executives, spiritual teachers and even a military strategist. Highlights in the book include conversations with:

•   Edgar Mitchell, Apollo astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, who shares how viewing earth from space changed his perspective on life.
•   Howard Martin, an executive with the Institute of HeartMath, who discusses the science of inner peace and the real world implications of starting the peace process “from within.”
•   B.J. Dohrman, founder of CEO Space, who talks about how the business community can shift the paradigm from competitive capitalism to cooperative capitalism.
•   John Raatz, founder of the Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment, who examines how to create a new “media diet” consisting of messages that uplift humanity.
•   Thomas Barnett, author and former professor at the Naval War College, who urges religious groups to lead the way in working for positive change in a global economy.

The interviews are linked by a common theme:  Peace happens when individuals see themselves and others as expressions of the same divine Source. “The ‘aha’ moment for me from all these interviews was that each of us has the power to see with new eyes, change our way of being and bring new order to the world,” said Audlin.

Each interview is followed by questions and exercises for reflection, discussion and action. “The book can be used by individuals to deepen their commitment to spiritual social action or it can form the basis for a church or community study group,” said Audlin.

Audlin will celebrate the culmination of Peace Week by hosting a fundraising gala September 24 in Dallas, Texas. The event, entitled “From Purpose to Peace” will be live streamed. For information on joining the live stream, visit Let It Begin With Me.
