Peace Science

Is there a science to peace? 
Is there a formula we can follow?
Is world peace actually possible?

Yes, Yes, and Yes, absolutely. 

Volumes have been written about the topic and science of peace. 
Here at Peace Accelerators we like to keep things simple. 
This page is an easy collection of many of our favorite links to videos, talks, studies, research, and data that we find extremely beneficial for all humans to know.
This way we can all accelerate peace together.

Ricard is a longtime participant in an ongoing research study led by Richard J. Davidson that monitors a subject's brain waves during various forms of meditation including compassion meditation. Davidson is director of the Waisman Lab for Brain Imaging and Behavior (WLBIB) and the William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry.

So what is it?
What does it look like? 
and how do we use it? 

Well, for starters, in order to achieve 'world (or global) peace' and explain 'peace science' we need to first define the word. 


The word and concept: Peace

Merriam Webster has has 5 definitions for the english word Peace. 
To absorb the word & concept deeper we should also consider understanding the word's history (etymology). 

As stated in other parts of this website when Peace Accelerators refers to the word peace we are promoting all of it's definitions
 but we place our primary focus and effort as an organization on "the absence or cessation of war or hostility."
To quote one of our favorite minds, Johan Galtung may have said it best on the subject:


"By peace we mean the capacity to transform conflicts with empathy, without violence, and creatively a never ending process."
