''Violent behavior is rooted in the brain. The only way to prevent violent behavior is to restore balanced brain functioning. The Brain-Based Approach to Peace restores balanced neurological functioning on the individual and global scale.''
—John Hagelin, President, Global Union of Scientists for Peace
Why a new approach?
Conventional approaches to reducing violence and social conflict are costly and, ultimately, ineffective because they do not address the underlying cause: acute societal stress—including political, ethnic, and religious tensions in critical hotspots around the globe.
Stress negatively impacts the brain, impairing reasoning and fueling impulsive, violent, antisocial behavior.
The Global Peace Initiative has identified powerful, scientifically proven meditation-based ''technologies of consciousness'' that neutralize individual and societal stress, restore balanced brain functioning, and markedly reduce crime and social conflict.
The Global Peace Initiative is now implementing this ''Brain-Based Approach to Peace'' on a national scale in the United States and on a global scale in India.
