We all have a quiet little secret: often, we’re just barely hanging on.
Barely hanging on to our sanity, barely hanging on to our cool, and barely hanging on to our well-being. We’re just trying to get to the end of the day (or our to-do list).
That’s because while modern life has gotten infinitely richer, new stressors tax us in ways that our ancestors never experienced. We’re peppered by 24/7 communication, tethered to ever-larger cycles of debt, burdened with excessive stuff, and live in a go-go culture of ever-escalating expectations.
We often work longer and harder with less security.
It can be hard to find real inner peace in the midst of all these competing forces.
That’s when we all need simple, powerful practices, especially ones harvested from the world’s wisdom traditions and validated by modern science that we can do throughout our day.
We need time-tested ways to shift our consciousness right now towards inner peace when the rapids of life get out of control.
Who better to guide us in the path than someone who has faced all these modern stressors and come out thriving?
Not so long ago, inner peace and compassion teacher Emily Hine was spiritually on purpose. Following the tragedy of 911, she took a leap of faith to leave her corporate job at Microsoft and focus her life’s work on increasing peace and compassion in the world.
Shortly thereafter, Emily was serendipitously invited to join a group that was hosting the Dalai Lama for a 5-day, massive compassion event with 150,000 people where she interviewed him on stage.
Next, she took a position as the Chief of Peace at The Shift Network. She was living her purpose... but all of that was about to change!
After earning a spot at the global table working for peace and compassion, Emily’s own inner peace was rocked with a cancer diagnosis that caused her to unearth all of the areas of her life where she was NOT at peace.
She was forced to face and heal, not only the cancer, but her workaholism, unresolved sexual traumas, and debilitating depression.
With a lot of soul searching, Emily’s journey inward and upward helped her heal from cancer without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. She slowed down her work pace and courageously faced the deep-seated emotional wounds that caused her depression. And through it all, she strengthened her connection to Source in such a way that she is unshakeable on her path to helping others heal and find their inner peace and compassion.
She discovered what had long been missing.
And now she’s sharing her life-lessons to help you on your own path to peace and joy.
In the At Peace With Yourself five-week training, Emily will share the pillars to healing physically and emotionally.
You’ll discover simple, no-nonsense practices to more easily and consistently navigate the painful moments in your life and access a sense of inner peace and joy, regardless of outside circumstances.
You’ll learn practices that will help you become more mindful — of every aspect of your life — starting with becoming conscious of what you’ve been unconscious about.
And, you’ll access simple ways to sustain your mindfulness and redirect yourself back to this state of greater awareness when life circumstances cause you to stray.
You’ll also discover the power of your heart to help you heal past wounds and create healthy, compassionate responses to the inevitable interpersonal conflicts that arise in your life — including sure-fire tools for identifying your hidden emotions so you won’t be hijacked by them and can be more empowered to make better choices for yourself.
Emily’s approach to emotional balancing will also help you discover how to manage your own energy and filter out harmful external energies — from other people, places and events — which can impact your wellbeing and inner peace.
The practices Emily will share with you during this powerful new training will not only help you get through trying times but can greatly enhance the quality of your life...
Facing life-shattering challenges — the loss of a loved one, relationship, career, home or health — we can experience stress and grief that feels unbearable.
Yet, by discovering how to consistently cultivate inner peace and readily tap into this calming and cleansing reservoir, you create a place of refuge and rejuvenation that you can continually return to when you need it...
In doing this, you are drawing from your own innate capacity for compassion, which, as Emily learned in her own journey, is your true sustainable source of happiness.
And, as you discover how to tap into inner peace and inner guidance more frequently, you’ll become more aware of your habits that may be blocking you from cultivating and maintaining your inner peace equilibrium. You’ll also become more aware of the external obstacles to your inner peace — those you’ve chosen (including your thoughts, food, media and people) and those in your environment.
When you can see these blocks, you can embark on the journey of creating new habits and consciously choosing the things and people in your life that allow you to deepen your experience of peace — that place inside that feels like “home” and allows for the full expression of who you really are.
And, if anyone’s told you that working on your own inner peace is selfish, it’s anything but! It’s actually the most selfless thing you can do, because when you create your own “peace zone,” you also become a better conveyor of peace — in your relationships, community, workplace and the world.
Here’s more of what you’ll discover on your journey with Emily:
Emily wholeheartedly brings the insights gained on her own heroine’s journey (a self-guided approach to healing stage II cancer without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation) to her mindfulness, peace and compassion teachings.
What Emily offers is real — she’s lived it. No secondhand knowledge here. At a crucial time in her life, turning inward (and upward!) was her only hope...
And she’ll share her hard-earned wisdom, and support you to tap into more inner peace — even during a time in your life when that may seem impossible.
Emily’s training and background in the global peace and compassion arena include her work with Seeds of Compassion, a global event with the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Compassion Teacher Training at Stanford, and as a faculty and facilitator with The Shift Network Peace Education Programs.
This important work has provided her with well-schooled insights into the cultivation of peace and compassion on a global scale, yet, her own life journey gave her the opportunity to focus much more deeply on where peace originates — within one’s own heart.
In the At Peace With Yourself training, Emily will use humor, authenticity and her admirable boots-on-the-ground approach to help you discover how to address the painful stories and difficult experiences in your life.
Advanced seekers will benefit from her paradigm shifts that will inspire you to strengthen and broaden your practice for the benefit of all beings. Beginners will find Emily’s no-nonsense approach easy to follow. And all levels will find her practices heart-opening, consciousness-expanding and, most likely, downright indispensable.
As you know, the school of life presents you with ample opportunities to test your ability to maintain your inner peace, so having Emily’s proven approaches — which can draw you quickly into your own personal “peace zone” — are of great value no matter your level of spiritual mastery.
These unique-to-you approaches will be your go-to practices to support you in anchoring new habits and thought processes to cultivate more inner peace, compassion and self-empowerment.
This is a course in which you’ll feel as though finally someone is going to sit down with me and really help me anchor and embody this!
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
In this 5-week transformational intensive, Emily will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies that you’ll need to successfully develop consistent habits that will bring you closer to your path of being at peace with yourself, help you to integrate humor into your life and to practice and acknowledge our common humanity.
Each weekly, LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to sustain your awakened path to inner peace.
At our deepest level, inner peace is who we are, our soul essence. It’s always there. Our job is to actively remember it’s there, tap into it and remove the obstacles that prevent us from experiencing it. In this pillar, we will learn specific mindfulness techniques that increase self-awareness and ultimately lead us to accessing more inner peace.
This week, you’ll discover:
Are you consistently triggered by a person or events in your life, causing you emotional upheaval and chaos? What repetitive thoughts do you have that are creating draining emotions and keeping you from living a harmonious life? Who or what haven’t you forgiven that might free up your energy for more joy? As human beings, it’s inevitable that we’ve experienced difficult times resulting in stored emotions that inhibit our tranquility. While we don’t always have control of external circumstances, we can use mindfulness and the power of our heart to heal past wounds and create healthy responses to the inevitable interpersonal conflicts that arise.
This week, you’ll discover:
As human beings, we’re comprised of energy and share a collective consciousness — a universal field of energy. Therefore, we’re susceptible to the energy all around us, including energy from other people, places and events. In this module, we’ll discover tools for managing our own energy and filtering out harmful external energies that can impact our wellbeing and inner peace. We’ll also learn how to manage our life force and energy field so that we are a vessel of peace for ourselves and those around us.
This week you’ll discover:
What is universal consciousness and how do we tap into it? Science and spirituality are coming together around the understanding that there is a universal consciousness and that our individual consciousness is a manifestation of it. As we learn to tap into our individual soul essence, we also learn how to tap into the larger field of universal consciousness. This is a real game-changer, because as we realize we are no longer alone and that there is infinite wisdom, love and guidance available to us, we are lead to our own unique relationship with and expression of our divine light or soul.
This week, you’ll discover:
During our final week, you’ll see your life through a different lens. You’ll use the new practices you’ve discovered — for living a more authentic, conscious and peaceful life — to tap into your higher guidance and create your own personal inner peace map that you can take forward and apply in your daily life. You’ll also learn from each other, as course participants actively share their newly acquired inner peace practices.
This week, you’ll discover:
In addition to Emily’s transformative 5-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions with leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions complement the course — and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
What would you be like if you had no ego-identity? Sister Jenna guides us to the innate sense of peace that exists in our soul essence, beyond identification with the various roles that we play in this life such as gender, title and so many more.
Sister Jenna is a spiritual leader, author, radio talk show host, renowned speaker and founder and director of the Meditation Museum I & II in metropolitan Washington, DC and director of the Washington, DC branch of the Brahma Kumaris, a worldwide organization with over 8,500 branches in 120 countries.

There is a common belief that global peace first starts with inner peace. This theme has been described by saints and sages throughout the centuries. In this session, Michael Singer shares practical and profound insights on how you can achieve true inner peace.
Michael A. Singer is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself. In 1971, while pursuing his doctoral work in economics, he experienced a deep inner awakening and went into seclusion to focus on yoga and meditation. In 1975, he founded Temple of the Universe, a yoga and meditation center where people of any religion or set of beliefs can come together to experience inner peace. Through the years, Singer has made major contributions in the areas of business, the arts, education, healthcare and environmental protection.
Saints and sages of all religions have said that world peace starts with inner peace. However, more and more human beings are pursuing happiness on the hedonic treadmill of consumption and our collective impact is wreaking havoc on the planet. We must make more conscious choices about our way of life. In this compelling video, Philip Hellmich, The Shift Network’s Director of Peace, shares why our inner journey is essential for our own personal well-being and critical to the health of the planet and survival of humanity.
Philip Hellmich is Director of Peace at The Shift Network, director of The Summer of Peace and chief architect of the World Peace Library. Summer of Peace is a groundbreaking series of events that bring together some of the world’s foremost peacebuilders and social architects, while serving to illuminate practical actions. Philip is a lead co-producer of the Yoga Day Summit, a celebration of the International Day of Yoga. Philip has dedicated most of his life to global and local peacebuilding initiatives, including 14 years with Search for Common Ground. He also served for four years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone. A published writer, Philip is author of God and Conflict: A Search for Peace in a Time of Crisis. He serves as adviser to The Global Peace Initiative of Women.
There’s a place inside each of us that we can return to again and again when we want to feel calm amidst the chaos of the external world. This place is our birthright, our center, our essence of pure peace. During this guided meditation, Emily uses simple breathing and visualization practices to lead you back home to your very foundation of inner peace.
There is always a marked difference between someone who has mastered the concepts and someone who has taken the journey. But when you meet someone who has a full command of the very latest thinking in a number of disciplines matched with profound life experiences, commitment and practice you are lucky indeed. Emily Hine is such a person. She can show the way to be At Peace With Yourself because she has been at the leading edge of the science and practice of peace and compassion work for many years and because she has been taken to the very edge of challenges in her own life. Take this opportunity to journey deep into your own inner journey to peace with a teacher who really knows how to get you there. I assure you these words come from authenticity and truth and for sincere caring that we be led by true teachers.
— James O’Dea, Former President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Former Director of Amnesty International
Emily has overcome significant life-threatening health challenges. It is this experience and others that imbue her with compassion for herself and others and it is through this journey that she has found her inner peace.

I cannot recommend her more highly for teaching the online course At Peace With Yourself.

Emily is a real life, real time, mindfulness guru. She’s been through the fire, and alchemized the most soothing, grounded demeanor. Not to imply she’s dull or anything. Rather, she’s funny as sh&t!

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
