Dreaming Your Dream of Peace

July 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Peace, peace retreat

“Dreaming Your Dream of Peace” is a unique, engaging group process program, that explores and deepens participants’ personal understanding of peace. Through contemplation, group sharing, and examining questions, participants come to know their personal peace journey and consider the basic building blocks of personal and world peace. The program is also unique in that a component of the session allows participants to create a physical “vision” of peace, utilizing various supplied media (such as play dough, construction paper, crayons, markers, etc.) and to share that “vision” with the group. The session concludes with a collective commitment to peace, internally and in the world. Guided by Chuck Michaels and Jaymie Litsey.


Chuck Michaels is the coordinator of Pax Christi Baltimore, a chapter of Pax Christi USA. The Baltimore chapter was started in 1985 and still conducts annual events, presents programs on peacemaking, and connects with like-minded local groups in demonstrations, vigils and rallies. Chuck has been on the National Council of Pax Christi USA, a position he held for six years. He is also an attorney and graduated from University of Maryland Law School. He is a member of the Catholic Community at Relay, a parish in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Jaymie Litsey is a management consultant with a background in strategic communications and change management. She conducts and designs various leadership workshops and training for her clients utilizing these skills. She has a master’s in Fine Arts from University of California, Davis. She is also a member of Pax Christi Baltimore and Catholic Community at Relay.
