WFWP Australia has local chapters in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. State level chapters embrace women of all ages, faiths, cultures and nationalities. We work in partnership with other WFWP Chapters worldwide and local stakeholders to contribute to the following major activities:
Peace Building Seminar Series - VIC
These four seminars are held annually in Clayton, VIC. Each seminar builds on the previous one, and explores the moral, spiritual and methodological principles that can foster peace building. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the philosophical principles that brought Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon (WFWP Founder) and her husband to create a new model for peace building and found WFWP.
Melbourne Pasifika Festival and Charity Walk- VIC
Join us for our annual Pasifika Festival and Charity Walk, which raises funds to support our humanitarian service projects in the Pacific Islands.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy a fun day with food stalls, arts and crafts, and entertainment and fun activities organised by local Islands communities.
Empowering Women, Strengthening Families, Connecting Communities
Faith Stories - VIC
Faith Stories is a cultural perspective of women in their faith. Our intent is to facilitate community connection by providing a panel of multicultural women faith leaders, who can share a deeper understanding of their faith and culture, resulting in a breakdown of barriers and unfounded stereotypes that hinder community cohesion.
Mindfulness Retreat - VIC
Our yearly Mindfulness Retreats offer an amazing opportunity to learn how to meditate, and receive guidance from Venerable Bhikkhuni Bodhicitta, a renowned meditation teacher with over 25 years of experience.
This years theme was: Your Peace of Mind - an opportunity to rest, relax, regenerate and start afresh.
(These events are open to both beginners and advanced meditators.)
These events are held in partnership between the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) and the International Centre for Inner Peace and Happiness (Nisala Arana), and it is supported by: Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU).
