Organization Description from the Sponsor:
Good begets good. It’s a belief that the Center for Living Peace™ heeds every day — the idea that one simple act of kindness can inspire another person to “pay it forward.” The result is a stronger sense of spirit and community for all. So enough talk — we have some good to do.

Kelly Thornton Smith, Newport Beach philanthropist, is the founder of the Center for Living Peace, Orange County.

The concept driving the development of the Center can be summed up in one simple phrase: “Good Happens.” It is a place where children, families, and adults of all ages can connect to self and their spirit, to others, and to the world. A place where each and every person can find their own special gifts and feel empowered to make a difference.

The Center for Living Peace provides a beautiful and inviting place for people to experience classes and programs dedicated to each of our four program pillars:

Our Living Peace Series is another important facet of the work of the Center. In partnership with the University of California, Irvine, the Center for Living Peace sponsors Living Peace, a series of conversations with international leaders committed to making the world a healthy, sustainable, and compassionate place.
