Product Description

From War to Peace is a rich and experiential meditation that pays homage to all who have died in calamities around the world. It will be a journey that you will never forget.

The goal of this meditation is to help you gradually come to understand the power of your ancestral and emotional foot print, and to transform its traumatic generational transmission and celebrate the ancestral wisdom. As you embrace your emotional history, you will learn to overcome its deeply imbedded limitations and their greatest potentials.

The discoveries you make while exploring your history today have the potential to free you to begin a new, liberated and meaningful life grounded in compassion. Compassion for self, for those we love, for others and for the universe.

About the Author

For more than two decades, Dr. Ani Kalayjian has been on a journey of healing through mindfulness, forgiveness, and meaning-making. She has devoted her life to studying the impact of trauma, and to helping others heal so that they can reach a state of wholeness by transforming ancestral trauma. "The terror from the sights and sounds of bombs, the loss of homes, possessions, routines, and stability; the experience of seeing their parents crying, fearful, and in anguish -- all these will likely last a lifetime for the Iraqi children," Kalayjian said of the current war on CNN. "And the effects of this war will continue for many generations."

Kalayjian's parents were survivors of the 1915 Ottoman Turkish Genocide of the Armenians that wiped out two-thirds of the Armenian people. She grew up experiencing the effects of trauma through her parents' suffering, and that trauma became hers.

Kalayjian's parents were always in pain, even after moving to the United States. It was not until after she started her research on the effects of trauma that she discovered what her grandparents endured during the genocide. Although Dr. Kalayjian's parents tried to 'spare' the family by maintaining silence, she still felt their pain.

As a child growing up in Syria she didn't know what was wrong or how to process it. Ultimately, she did so through her work. She became a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, psychology professor at Fordham University, international researcher, traumatologist, and community organizer, and founded over 5 non-governmental not-for-profit organizations. Her purpose is to helping survivors of natural and human-made disasters, helping their journey of rehabilitation and then empowering them and assisting them to find the lessons learned and discover a new meaning.

Dr. Ani Kalayjian received a Masters degree from Long Island University and Doctor of Education degree from Teachers College, Columbia University. Her 7-step Biopsychosocial and Eco-Spiritual Model has been used in over twenty-five countries to transform trauma into healing, through mindfulness, forgiveness, and meaning-making. She is the author of an internationally acclaimed book on Disaster & Mass Trauma, and the chief Editor of an international book on Forgiveness & Reconciliation: Psychological Pathways to Conflict Ttransformation and Peace Building (Springer Publishing, 2009), and Chief Editor of II Volumes on Emotional Healing Around the World: Rituals and Practices for Resilience and Meaning-Making (ABC-CLIO, 2009).

Dr. Kalayjian founded MeaningfulWorld, which is a consortium of several NGO s dedicated to fostering a meaningful, peaceful, and just world in which every individual enjoys physical, mental, ecological and spiritual health. A sense of meaning, peace, and justice, although unique to each individual, is achieved through a transformative journey that integrates knowledge and experience with a sense of responsibility and reflection.


This is a gracious and powerful vision which will help anyone relate to the difficulties of this world with deeper purpose and meaning. --Andrew Harvey, Author of The Hope a Guide to Sacred Activism
