Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragment. We are proud to say that this powerful documentary is moving along, and finally gathering speed!

A generous donation by the Institute of Noetic Sciences has made it possible to shoot interviews with 85% of our guests, and welcome on board Chance Gardner, our amazing editor, art director, animator and web designer - Thank you IONS! Thank you Chance!

Our guests include: Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dean Radin, James O'Dea, Marilyn Schlitz, Hans-Peter Durr, Gregg Braden, Arun Gandhi, Rupert Sheldrake, Elisabet Sahtouris, Roger Nelson, Edgar Mitchell, Lynne McTaggart and Rolin McCraty.

One-minute clips of many of these interviews are available on the individual guest pages, and more will be uploaded as we progress with the film, so please, keep checking back!

We have been privileged to shoot at premium locations such as IONS in Petaluma, the HeartMath Institute in Boulder Creek, California, the Esalen Institute in Big Sur and the Self-Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles. We are truly grateful for the support and assistance of these reputable organizations. Achieving a state of 'heart-coherence' is the basis of the science of peace, and shooting this film on location is one of the quickest ways there!

After many months of careful deliberation about the most effective way to market and distribute the film, we approached The Visioneering Group. TVG marketed What the Bleep, Peaceful Warrior and Leonardo DiCaprio's new film, 11th Hour, and have agreed to take on the marketing and help with distributing The Science of Peace.

We will be releasing the 90-minute film in selected theatres in 2008. A grass roots campaign to screen the film to peace- and consciousness-related groups and organizations will kick off worldwide sales of the DVD.

We are currently seeking funding to complete the film. The business plan is available on request. All donors of $1,000 or more will be listed in the end credits. Please visit our How you can help page for more information on how you can be a part of this mission.

If you would like your organization to be added to our list of peace organizations, please send an e-mail to Your organization will be notified with details for conducting a screening of the film, and/or distribute DVDs.

The time has come for this important information to be distributed to the world. Please help us by forwarding this e-mail to your mailing list. We thank you for your support.
