Let us create the First Peace together, now

Purpose of the first Peace Circle 

In order to create the world we long for, it is imperative to find new ways - of coming together, of listening more deeply, of finding solutions and of thinking and perceiving.

All of humanity is being called to attention by our earth planet and an evolving state of consciousness that is shifting our collective awareness. It is the purpose of this Lalita First Peace Circle to assist in the evolution of human consciousness toward peace on earth.

We, each of us, have the capacity to make the state of peace a reality now. A reality that will touch every part of our world, and becomes stronger and stronger as it spreads as a culture to all lands.

To awaken this capacity, we must together explore the nature of this state we call peace. What conditions allow it to grow and thrive? What conditions cause this state to diminish and be forgotten?

The First Peace, the peace that starts within oneself is described by Black Elk, an Oglala Sioux spiritual leader in the 18th Century, as follows:

“The First Peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the Universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the Universe dwells Wakan Tanka, the Great Spirit, and that this center is everywhere, and it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and others are but reflections of this. 

Joining a First Peace Circle is a way of forming part of a people’s movement wherein each member of the circle will be contributing to creating a culture of consciousness of peace in the world. There are many of these movements, and the People’s Movement of First Peace sponsored by the Ehama Instititute’s World Foundation for the Discipline of Peace is but one of them. First Peace Circles have unique elements to contribute to these movements toward making peace a reality now.


Learning journey

The Lalita First Peace Circle is being called forth by three Circle Leaders: Angèle CamusMarta Cisneros, and Almendra Staffa-Healey. Circle Leaders are trained SeedPlanters who chose to call a group of people together and will serve as the facilitators for the circle learning journey of First Peace.?

We invite you to deepen with us through these 10 sessions, where, in addition to an introductory session and a closing one, we will work in eight directions:

  • Activating the connection with all that is.
  • Connecting with stillness and listening.
  • Transcending automatic responses and taking charge of our life.
  • Reclaiming the power of being on our true path.
  • Honoring balance with self and planet.
  • Opening ourselves to dream the desired reality.
  • Making our impact on reality beautiful.
  • Caring for and correctly directing our energy.

First Peace Circle values are important to agree upon with Circle members. People from all traditions and backgrounds are invited to join. We suggest this beginning list of values: listening in respect, honoring differences, speaking from the heart, keeping personal statements or feelings that have been spoken within the Circle and maintaining clear open communication among Circle participants.


We will be keeping open the spirit of ‘the first people had questions’ which will allow us to explore deeply with each other and avoid the trap of needing to have the right answer. 

“The first people had questions, and they were free;
the second people had answers and they became enslaved.”
Ancient Earth Wisdom

The first part of this wisdom “the first people had questions, and they were free” is the foundation of a way of being that engaged the mind and heart to be open and seeking rather than closed and positional. 

Unfortunately, in our human affairs, we have had many experiences with the second part of the above saying, “the second people had answers and they became enslaved” which we most often find at the heart of conflict and war. 

The invitation for First Peace Circles is to allow your questions, individually and collectively, to guide you in deep exploration and to find your own inspiration, your own beauty and your own resonance in this process. 

Each Circle will come to resonance in themselves through exploration while this ‘spirit’ of openness and inquiry allows each one the space to deepen and to open

The Lalita First Peace Circle will be held in English. We welcome speakers of other languages knowing that the common language of instruction and conversation will be English, with support for Spanish speakers.

First Peace Circle Leaders

All three are Certified First Peace Circle Leader, Ehama Institute. Discipline of Peace..

Angèle Camus 

I firmly believe that each of us possesses the inherent power to shape the lives we envision, not only for ourselves but also for those around us.

My life's journey has been dedicated to various forms of art across different countries, encompassing the nurturing of children and, for the past 15 years, actively contributing to sustaining a family dream — Lalita Devi Escuela de Vida, where part of our peace circles will unfold.

In my artistic endeavors, I've explored diverse mediums, finding inspiration in the intricacies of human expression and the beauty of cultural diversity. These experiences have fueled my commitment to fostering understanding and connection, transcending borders and bridging hearts.

Join us on this transformative voyage, where the brushstrokes of peace meet the canvas of our shared existence.

Marta Cisneros 

I deeply believe in the potential of human beings, in the power of growth and transformation. In our capacity to access to our inner peace and our true self.

I help and support people around the world to make it possible, with almost 2,500 hours of experience as a leadership coach and group facilitator. I´m a Co-active Coach (ICF-PCC) and Leadership Expert (CTI Leadership Program. Evocative Leadership Mastery (Ehama Intitute) graduate).

As a meditation and yoga instructor since 2008, contemplative practices have been an integral part of my life, providing me with the opportunity to guide others through contemplation retreats, including those held in monasteries.

Almendra Staffa-Healey 

I believe in and truly love people. I believe that getting new results comes from gradually developing new perspectives, new interpretations, new ways of doing and being to achieve new ways of behaving. I believe in the loving challenge.

As a coach (ICF-ACC), experiential learning educator, intercultural trainer and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) facilitator I have been working for over 25 years helping people across cultures make changes and transitions based on self-knowledge and from a place of self-esteem and confidence. 

My life has been a voyage of discovery, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I have been blessed to learn and understand many paths that have led me to become a life-giving artist of consciousness. My life work is to accompany and help others achieve self-understanding and in community, achieve ultimate balance./

El Centro de Retiros "Lalita Devi".

En el corazón de Sierra de Gata, provincia de Cáceres se encuentra el "Centro de Retiros Lalita Devi". En un valle fértil a los píes de la montaña Jálama, entre bosques de roble, castaños y un pequeño río que sustenta la vida, iniciamos nuestra andadura hace ya 38 años. Fuimos, de alguna forma como muchos otros. pioneros en nuestra búsqueda de un estilo de vida diferente, más natural, más sencillo y más sostenible. Con una mirada hacia dentro y una gran necesidad de sanar la mente y alma nació el proyecto de Lalita. Y así. acompañados por nuestra familia, amigos y un sin fin de buscadores y viajero que poco a poco fueron dejando su huella en el lugar y nuestros corazones, se construyo lo que ahora es "Lalita Devi Escuela de Vida", el espacio de retiro, naturaleza e introspección que queremos compartir contigo.

Estamos situados dentro de un valle de 18 hectáreas de campo donde puedes darte baños en pozas naturales, pasear en el amanecer por sus bosques o disfrutar de noches inolvidables bajo las estrellas.

La comida de Lalita es vegetariana, con una gran variedad de productos ecológicos y platos inspirados en la cocina internacional, que se preparan día a día con productos frescos, regionales  y de calidad.

Preguntas frecuentes:

Nuestro dieta base es Ovo-lacto Vegetariana, elaboramos un menú variado con cereales y legumbres biológicos y fruta y verdura fresca. El menú consiste en ensalada un plato principal con su guarnición correspondiente y una crema o sopa como mínimo.
