THE ART & SPIRIT OF CONSCIOUS CO-DWELLING™
Sow Peace International was founded by Dr. Rhoberta Shaler to offer the experiences, insights and expertise she brings to transforming relationships through her many programs based on her concept of Conscious Co-Dwelling™. Intergenix™, Via Placida, Midas Thinking, & Prosperity on Purpose are some of the many programs she has developed to help different groups of people enrich their lives individually and together by seeing through and working through relationships problems and forging new bonds and agreements with themselves, those at home and at work. She says,
“When people think of world peace it is a lofty concept which they are in favor of but have no connection to creating. I believe that peace in THE world begins with peace in MY world and expands from there, one relationship at a time.
The process begins with a conscious desire and commitment to creating peace within myself. That means taking the time to understand who I am right now in my life, and then, aligning my actions and words with my vision, values, beliefs and purpose in the moment. I do my inner work first, reflecting on my life and resolving issues, so that I am free of the past and able to focus on my unique contribution to the world in every way.
Part of that process is healing relationships and releasing ourselves from our inherited, adapted and adopted patterns. These are the things we wrote about in the book I co-authored with G. Charles Andersen, Soul Solitude™: Taking Time for Our Souls to Catch Up. We must free ourselves from the things that create relationship problems because they are, what I have coined, “intertoxic.” We don’t need to label people. We simply need to understand that, at the current time–and maybe over a lot of years, too–we are experiencing intertoxicity. My work with individuals, couples and families, is to help them release the intertoxic nature of their past family relationships and to create new bonds and agreements that encourage love, joy, trust and peace.
In one of our programs, for example, the great joy of the Intergenix™ Weekend, The Women’s Intergenerational Experience, for me is to watch women transform their relationship with themselves, their mothers, daughters and siblings. Both watching and joining in the celebrations that are filled with visible relief, joy and possibilities is the greatest indication I can have that our desire to sow peace is much greater than our desire to maintain and sustain the pain of isolation, separation and mistrust. I hope all women will join in and experience this for themselves.”
Sow Peace International has three divisions:
- Individual, couple, family & group sessions, classes and/or mediation
- Seminars onsite and on the telephone
- the work of our affiliated non-profit charity association in Canada
Join us and make it possible for worthwhile projects, such as the Youth Enterprise Network International that we support in Uganda, to proceed. This project currently helps orphaned young men to acquire the skills, and the sense of community, to return to an agriculturally more prosperous way of life. Dr. Shaler is the Chief Business Adviser to this project.
