Peace Story: finding peace in prison

In 1993 Sean took the life of another human being. He spent 21 years in prison for murder. Whilst in prison, he started to look for answers. How could he have allowed himself to get to the point where he believed it was okay to commit this crime? He began with God. When he was introduced to the Peace Education Program he realized he was looking for peace in all the wrong areas. He was looking everywhere but inside of himself. Prem Rawat’s teachings told him that real peace was inside. After he was released from prison, the lessons of peace in the program were so powerful that he started to work as a facilitator of the Peace Education Program.
