COVID-19 has changed how we do many things. With social distancing measures in place to combat the spread of the virus, organisers of gatherings that involved face-to-face meetings have had to rethink their strategy of operation. In Melbourne Judy Greenberg and Cheryl Wood, two experienced Creators of Peace (CoP) facilitators, took on a request to run a Peace Circle online for the very first time.
CoP is an international women’s initiative started in 1991, which challenges women everywhere to create peace at every level of society. Creators of Peace Circles are small community gatherings of women who work together through a series of discussion prompts designed to deepen their friendship and understanding of their peace-creating capabilities.
