Our Keynote speaker, Paula Green, Founder of the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding in Amherst, MA, has decades of experience in:

  • Developing and facilitating international conflict transformation programs in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East
  • Leading immersive and life-changing dialogues across polarizations and divisions
  • Guiding interventions for US campuses and communities seeking to increase diversity and foster social inclusion
  • Fostering community-based approaches to reconciliation and forgiveness
  • Nurturing women’s leadership in peacemaking
  • Offering training of trainers’ programs for peacebuilders and dialogue facilitators to enhance skills and best practices
  • Creating organizations and programs of lasting impact

“Guided by a deep and abiding commitment to peace and justice, I found my way through graduate degrees in the 1970’s in both intergroup relations and humanistic psychology, and from there to the then newly emerging field of international peacebuilding. In the 1980’s I honed my skills through serving on the boards of directors of numerous social change organizations and learned to be courageous and trustworthy in responding to emotions and conflict in my work as a psychotherapist. Through this history, a year of living in Asia, and the guidance of wise mentors, I developed as a peacebuilder.”
