Peaceful World Conversations



Peaceful World Conversations began in San Francisco by social entrepreneur Sami Sunchild. She began hosting World Conversations in the '90s for guests at the Red Victorian, her historic Haight-Ashbury bed & breakfast. Sami Sunchild structured her Peaceful World Foundation as a nonprofit foundation, tapping the network of innkeepers, cafĂ© owners, social entrepreneurs, conversation hosts, writers, and others to contribute their experience as volunteer mentors to fledgling hospitality entrepreneurs. She priced the Peaceful World hospitality trainings and motivational art so that they appealed and were accessible to a broad audience. Four decades later, Peaceful World Foundation is breaking ground in the heart of San Francisco with the launch of its hosted conversations and educational programs.

"Conversations focus on discovering our human similarities and differences, personal experiences in our lives, our travels, perhaps what we learned from them, and want to share with others." -Sami Sunchild



Ingredients to a Conversation:
   ○  Differences - New Points of View
   ○  Similarities - Shared Feelings, Experiences
   ○  Speaking - From Life Experience, Not Theory
   ○  Listening - Really Listening
   ○  Understanding - Empathy, Not Persuasion
   ○  Brevity - Keep it Short and to the Point 


 
"As part of a movement to restore the lost art of conversation, Peaceful World Conversations bring people together to talk about topics that matter in their own lives and in the world as a whole."
Sami Sunchild, Conversation Space
