About

Hi, I’m Ben,

Thank you for finding your way here!

I’m a meditation and mindfulness teacher, stillness coach, nature lover, a curious and heart centered human being with a vision – the Peacekeeper Project.

I know deep in my heart (and so do you) that a peaceful and connected world will be a result of peaceful and connected people.

My mission (and that of the Peacekeeper Project) is to help create a more peaceful and connected world by helping people just like you quiet your busy mind, so you can live from your Heart.

We’re living at a time when the ability to quiet the mind is needed now more than ever!

 

With so many things competing for our attention we’re over-stimulated, stressed, and most importantly we’re becoming disconnected from our heart and the people and things that are truly important.

But it doesn’t have to be like this!

The Peacekeeper Project provides education and training for reconnecting to the power of your heart, so you can navigate the stress and distraction of this fast-paced modern world grounded in peace, clarity and deep connection.

You’re part of something greater than yourself!

Personal transformation based on a greater vision of humanity at large.

We’re all deeply connected.

But you already know this.

You feel it!

When you transform your life by igniting the flame in your heart, this will radiate out into the world through the lives of the people you interact with.

The Peacekeeper Project was founded on the principle that if we want to create more peace in the world we must know what peace is.

 

Because the idea is not enough!

To make a difference we must know peace from the inside.

The idea of peace and the experience of it are two very different things. The first is just that, a nice idea. While knowing peace on the inside is based on direct experience that has the potential to change the world – and transform you along the way.

When your mind is full of non-stop chatter, emotions, stories and dramas, you’re continually filtering your life experiences, creating stress and anxiety, while projecting your inner conflicts outward onto other people and things, creating a “you vs me” mentality.

Inner conflict leads to outer conflict.

But a peaceful and connected world will be a result of peaceful and connected people.

When you reconnect to the stillness and peace inside yourself your actions and words are transformed, and will come from a space of peace… Not just the idea of what you “think” you should do.

Your actions and words become grounded in the peace, clarity and wisdom of your heart, while creating ripples through the lives of the people around you.

 

This is how you and I will help make the world a more peaceful and connect place.

“We can never make peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves”

 

~ Dalai Lama

What is a Peacekeeper?

We often think of a peacekeeper as someone outside of our self… Someone “out there” we give the job to of maintaining peace in the world.

This is flawed!

Conflict and turmoil in the world is a reflection of the conflict and turmoil in ourselves.

We can’t expect someone else to take care of the peace in the world if we’re unwilling to take care of it inside ourselves… It’s time for us to step up and take responsibility for our actions and the impact they have in the world around us.

Because we’re part of something far greater than ourselves!

 

The Essence of a Peacekeeper is PEACE.

When you become sensitive to the peace in your heart, you become a Peacekeeper. As a result you’ll naturally think bigger than yourself, because you feel a deep sense of connection to others and all things.

The peace inside you will radiate out through your presence, words, actions and interactions… ultimately having an impact on family, friends, community and humanity

A Peacekeeper is someone who holds a higher light for humanity.

Defining a Peacekeeper?

A Peacekeeper is someone who:

  • Seeks peace from the inside rather than just an idea.
  • Seeks understanding and truth rather than conflict and trying to prove a pre-held belief.
  • Realizes they’re part of something greater than themselves (humanity) and desire to make a positive impact in the lives of others.
  • Realizes their outward actions are a result of their inner state of mind, and so strive to maintain the integrity of their words and actions.

 

Imagine

Living from your heart, with a deep sense of stillness and peace – regardless of what life throws at you.

You can learn to do this!

What if by doing that you made in impact in the lives of others?

You will!

When you ground peace inside yourself, you not only gain freedom from the conflict and turmoil inside yourself, but you also stop adding to the conflict and turmoil in the world.

With peace anchored into your heart, every interaction you have will be an opportunity to share that peace.

Peace in your heart is a win win for everyone!

This is what it means to be a Peacekeeper.

 

Join me on a short journey into your heart.

You’re in a dark room.
So dark you can’t see anything.

You light a single candle.
It brings some light to the room.
It’s still dark but now you can see.

You light another candle…
And another.

You keep lighting candles around the room.
Every small flame adds a little more light.

Standing there in the room now flooded with light, you feel it all around you.
But you could never separate the light to distinguish one candle’s light from another.

The light filling the room is one!

Like each flame anchoring light into the room, you anchor peace and light into the world through your heart, for the rest of humanity.

And, just like the candles in the room, you’re not alone!
You’re part of something greater than yourself.

A peaceful world is a joint effort.
A combined aspiration of the heart.

Quiet your mind.
Remember stillness.
The nurturing and unwavering source of Life.
Your heart knows it well.

Hear the call!

Ignite the flame of your heart.
Anchor peace here and now.

The world needs your heart to shine.

A peaceful world is a joint effort.
A combined aspiration of the heart.
