About the Author
Philip M. Hellmich is Director of Peace at The Shift Network, an International organization mobilizing educational tools and cultivating alliances worldwide. He is Managing Director of TSN’s “Summer of Peace”, a monumental series of events throughout 2012 that bring together some of the world’s foremost Peacebuilders and Social Architects while serving to illuminate the urgency of our times in taking both personal and planetary actions towards peace. Philip has more than 25 years of experience in peacebuilding and conflict transformation, including 14 years with Search for Common Ground. He also served for four years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone where he lived and worked in small remote bush villages. A published writer, Philip is author of a forthcoming book God and Conflict: A Search for Peace in a Time of Crisis with a Foreword by Lama Surya Das. He serves as adviser to The Global Peace Initiative of Women. Philip’s framing passion coincides with the above question: How is inner peace a global responsibility, and vice versa? A long-time meditation practitioner, Philip enjoys studying and teaching about the parallels between inner and outer peacebuilding. Please visit Philip on the web: www.godandconflict.com

After reading his book, I have a much greater appreciation and understanding of what it means to be a peacebuilder. Having dabbled in a little bit of personal travel to various countries in South America, as well as Vietnam and Cambodia, I can easily see the truth in Philip's words about the economic disparity between the United States and other countries; and the careless effects that our entertainment industry can have on the rest of the world. I never quite understood what physical peacebuilding entailed besides providing clean water, medical care, and educational assistance to war-torn and poverty-stricken countries. Through this book, I've learned that peacebuilding can also, or rather should be a long-term cultural approach that promotes the acceptance, understanding, and reintegration of opposing parties based on the common needs of the society.
While most people may not have had international experience and/or exposure to peacebuilding projects around the world, Philip's main point is clear in that true peacebuilding starts inside your own consciousness before it can be cultivated and spread throughout our families, friends, communities, and the rest of the world. That is a state that we can all strive to achieve whether in the suburbs of America or the small villages of Africa.
I want to thank Philip for sharing his story with us through his book. He has lived and I believe continues to live an inspiring life with a passion for peace. It takes a great amount of courage not only to live that kind of life, but to openly share the ups and downs of his personal spiritual journey with others as well. I hope people will enjoy reading "God and Conflict" and learning about Philip's journey as much as I have.
In his search for peace and understanding, Phillip also takes us on a personal quest into consciousness and the Spirit Realm, and we find many answers there. I'm grateful that he so generously and openly shares his exposure to this invisible though provable realm, with the same attention to detail as you find in the physical landscape.
God and Conflict, is a bridge to peace building. It is innovative, inspiring, and healing. I will revisit it from time to time to absorb it's wisdom. This is a book to take into the future with us. Philip Hellmich is a voice to be heard in these troubled times.
