Peace on the Street

The central mission of Peace on the Street is education. Our mission is to provide an integrated educational program based upon the psychological understandings articulated by the historic Buddha and developed, through the centuries, by his teachers. We provide meditation classes to train the mind. We extend this mental training to the physical through our martial arts program. It is our belief that mental and physical training should be sustained through proper work and economic well-being. To that end, we provide career training as part of our integrated program. In essence our mission is to provide a program that integrates mind (meditation), body (martial arts) and spirit (work).

We are particularly grateful to the Friends of Zen for sponsoring our organization. Currently we are an administrative division of the friends of Zen.
