Academy for Peace Costa Rica
or the practice of BePeace please
feel free to email us.

The bulk of the Academy for Peace’s training efforts are aimed at teaching the BePeace practice to Costa Rican teachers, student mediators, and parents of students from participating schools. This training is not open to the general public.

In view of the growing demand from individuals, community groups, private schools and churches for training in the practice of BePeace, we are working to expand our training capabilities for private individuals and groups through the work of Rasur Foundation International, who's focus is to bring this practice to the world.

If you would like information on how to participate in any of these events or set up a training for your own area, please contact us at
