Global Peace Partners, Inc.
Promoting Peace, Inspiring Hope, Delivering Healing
When viewing this page, please take a moment to understand that Global Peace Partners does not share the typical corporate structure. Everyone of our team understands Servant Leadership. The Corporate Pyramid is turned upside down and our relationship to each other is described in a circle. Each of our team has demonstrated this by maxing their lives out for others at great sacrifice to themselves personally.
Global Peace Partners (GPP) is re-defining global thinking in the 21st century, and we are redefining it to meet the challenges of the global economy in forward thinking processes. We bring to matters the instinctively global perspective and deep market knowledge, insights of academic, medical, philanthropic and charity as a challenge, not as a charity. We are a new breed of charity as such, we teach, we engage and we reinforce the message. Locally we are “boots on the ground” site responders in a movement to engage greater diplomatic, at-times commence, and understandings in a healthy determined world. Healthy is the new fluency. Our task is to connect the values.
Our expanding networks worldwide we indeed have a distinctive global way of thinking, working and behaving – “Aero Dynamic Fluency" – across borders, issues and practices. We show up when you need us most, when a crises is medical, we are experienced and we’re unstoppable in keeping up with the latest medical advances. Aero Dynamic Fluency is the bridge to a creative peace in a passionately global world seeking healthy peace of mind, body, ethos; the spirit of resilience.

Dr. Richard Sapienza PhD
Richard Sapienza is the owner of Visibly Green, a Greenfield Ohio company specializing in green energy technology and as a business and employment cooperative that represents a new approach to providing support to the creation of new businesses. Visibly Green enables budding entrepreneurs to experiment with their business ideas while benefiting from a secure income. Once the business is established, the entrepreneur is not forced to leave and set up independently, but can stay and become a full member of the co-operative. The micro-enterprises thus combine to form one multi-activity enterprise whose members provide a mutually supportive environment for each other.
Dr. Sapienza as scientist and leader created an organization structured to (a) conduct successful R&D programs, and (b) rapidly develop new processes and products for the government, industry, and commerce. His developments of non-toxic, environmentally friendly deicers for aircraft applications received R&D Magazines R&D Award for one of the best technical innovations of 2001. Dr. Sapienza also discovered and patented a catalytically reactive topical skin protectant against chemical warfare agents and alternative ignition catalysts for advanced monopropellants. Under his leadership, the small business grew to 30 employees with over $6 million per year of contract research and three major commercialization projects. He has fostered participation partnerships, internal team building, staff mentoring, and hiring consultants. By creating an open atmosphere of communication and interaction between scientific and engineering personnel with a defined applied science and industrial ecology strategy, he has managed innovation, practiced tech transfer, and has acted as an information specialist spotting and placing new technology.
Dr. Sapienza has over 30 years of program management experience and 35 years developing new materials and methods. While at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Dr. Sapienza directed, administered, promoted and coordinated activities of the Fuels and Catalysis Division. He supervised a multi‑disciplined research team on projects related to alternative fuels, energy conversion and energy conservation for industry, government and academia; interfaced with laboratory administration, other departments and divisions, providing scientific and engineering expertise for new program directives and was consultant to MIT chemical Engineering Practice School programs. His innovative efforts have resulted in a new metal winning process; homogeneous and heterogeneous high activity catalysts for fuels and hydrogen production; approaches to diesel soot reduction and dielectric fluids. The National Research Council as a future “benchmark discovery in catalysis” has recognized his homogeneous methanol patent.
In addition to his R&D experience, Dr. Sapienza has lectured at the university level. He is highly regarded for his creativity, enthusiasm, fine communication skills and ability to work with others. Dr. Sapienza has lead several teams assessing new technology and organized technical teams for a business strategy for pollution reduction and hazardous materials minimization and the commercial development of space. Dr. Sapienza has authored over 50 publications and patents and has been an invited speaker at universities, professional meetings, conferences and symposia. He has also contributed to television and radio programs and his work has been featured in newspapers and magazines.
Married and father to four children, he enjoys soccer and writing editorial opinions for his local paper. He is also developing Indoor Greenfield, a new community family entertainment club with a multisport complex where both youth and adults can participate in team sports and educational play located in downtown Greenfield and is assisting the community and county on energy, water and sanitation.
Randolph T Ziesenis
In1980 I started inventing things. The following are some of the projects or inventions; I have done, recently completed or are currently doing. Many technologies more that I keep as Trade Secrets.
1. Invented system and hardware for monitoring and tracking probation offenders, cell phones and vehicles. After receiving NIJ award for the best system in Oklahoma test.
I sold technology to Brinks and McCall cellular in 1989.
During this time, I was traveling in my RV and developed cancer from sleeping over AC/DC generator.
I made an agreement with God to be of service to humanity and the planet. After this I started to focus on health technology.
2. In1993 I founded Spirits of the Land Foundation Inc with John Vittelo (fund raiser for St Joseph Hospital Foundation) and Bill Rice ( Won sovereignty case against the state of OK in USA Supreme court 9 to 0). In 1996 I moved research lab and family to 160 acre Healing Center, on sacred Indian land in Sac and Fox Nation area. People from around the world have come to experience the healing sites. www.greatspiritearth.com
3. From 1989 to now, I have researched how Radio Frequencies, EMF, SUN, Galactic energy effects humans, animals and plants. Developed wide range of water related technologies. Hired and became friends with Dr Bill Tiller retired now from Stanford Physics Dept who wrote the wording, for my Structured Water patents, 5,925,292 and 6,076,811. Some of my technologies are discussed in his books. Also designed and licensed the original Clarus QLink pendant to reduce the affects of EMF to humans.
4. Remote Viewing and Remote Influence by satellite and other ways. Started in 1967 for water and now focus on Primary earth generated water sources (currently locating sources in Africa and China). I worked in oil and gas well locating and maintenance from 2004 to now.
5 Did consulting in Oil and Gas industries from 2005 to 2007 and designed and tested a RF Vortex Separator to take heavy crude at well site and drop out sulfur, sand, numerous old chemicals and polymers, so finished product was acceptable for tankers to purchase (ended up like motor oil in car) .
6 Also developed system to enhance drilling mud, using Zeta potential and formula.
7 Developed Magnetic down hole pump so that moving parts did not touch and would process oil on the way to surface. Does not hurt pump if gas is in oil or no fluids.

Dr. Kim MItchell, PhD
Sean Malcom Wheeler
Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado, Bachelor of Science in Journalism from the University of Kansas.
Public and Private Sector Land Use Planner with 15 years experience in the development of Urban and Rural areas.
Former television news producer and writer.
Retired U.S. Navy Gulf War Veteran and former Naval Officer with international work and travel experience in over 25 countries throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
I am deeply honored to be asked to serve on the Advisory Board for the Global Peace Partners Inc. The more I read and learn about the Global Peace Partners, the more I am drawn to support its objectives. I truly believe that peacemakers are blessed. That belief was solidified in me most recently while I worked as a consultant in Kabul, Afghanistan for two months in the fall of 2011. There I was welcomed with great kindness by the Afghans with whom I worked. They were happy to share with me about their culture and faith, and equally interested to learn about my world as well. I genuinely wanted to, as I knew little about them and have a passion for learning about other people and their cultures. As a guest in their country, I also felt I had some obligation to do so and it was a rewarding experience. I developed a strong bond of friendship with several young Afghans that continue today via email now that I’ve left Kabul.
I have been described by some as Renaissance man of sorts, but I know that whatever successes I’ve had are because my life is blessed by God. My career has been varied and interesting. After graduating from high school in Tucson, Arizona I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, feeling a strong compulsion to serve my country. My Navy career spanned 20 years on both active duty and in the reserves. Eventually I received my Commission and “retired” as a Lieutenant.
Early in life I discovered a passion for writing which led me to pursue a degree in journalism. My first job out of J-school was at CNN. Nothing fancy, I just worked as a camera operator and copy boy for the on-air talent. From there I moved on to two ABC affiliates where I worked as a News Producer. In college my advisor told me I looked far to young to get a job on-air, so I pursued an off-camera career path. As a journalist I was able to continue to sharpen my writing skills that still serve me well today. Eventually I opted to leave the profession as in school I was taught to tell the truth and report just the facts. I found this was not often how things worked in the real world of television news, so I returned to active duty in the Navy as a young ensign after my Commissioning. The Navy trained me as an intelligence officer and during the first Gulf War I served as a courier to the Middle East, in addition to being a geopolitical and terrorism analyst for the active duty forces afloat. At the end of the war, Congress cut the intelligence officer active duty forces by 43% and I found myself out of a job and considering new options.
Out of necessity I had to pursue another interest as the Navy no longer provided a full-time job and too much time had passed for me to find another place in the world of journalism. I was accepted at Virginia Tech in their graduate landscape architecture program, and eventually transferred to the University of Colorado at Denver to complete my studies. Nakata Planning Group in Colorado Springs hired me from an internship position after graduation, where I worked in military facility planning. From there I moved to the public sector land use planning field, first working for the Town of Basalt, Colorado as an Assistant Planner then moving on to the Larimer County Planning Department in Northern Colorado. I would remain in that position for almost 13 years until the County faced a severe budget shortfall in 2010 and my position was eliminated. During my time there I gained a significant amount of experience in the challenges of land use development and some maturity as well. It was a worthwhile time in my life on many levels, and I even met my beautiful wife there and we have been very happily married for almost 7 years now. In the summer of 2011 I accepted a contract role with AMEC in Afghanistan as a Senior Landscape Architect and Military Facilities Planner. The position was supposed to last a full year and perhaps two, but shortly after my arrival in Kabul contract work began to quickly fall off. As the last person hired, I was the first to be let go.
I have an absolute passion for serving in one capacity or another. I am hopeful my experience and personal goals will serve Global Peace Partners well, and I am excited to be a part of this organization.

Distinguished Alumni Award Citation
Columbia University, Teachers College Alumni Association
Dr Ani Kalayjian, you have devoted your life to studying the impact of trauma and to helping others to heal. That calling grows out of your family’s history and your own: As a child in
In a sense, your life since then has been- to borrow a phrase from your own writings- about channeling the sense of helplessness that one feels in such moments into the work of helping others. You have treated and studied survivors of manmade disasters- the Gulf War, the war in Vietnam, the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, the World Trade Center attacks- as well as survivors of disasters arising from natural causes: the 1988 earthquake in Armenia, the 1994 earthquake in Southern California, Hurricane Andrew in Southern Florida, the 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan, the 1999 earthquake in Turkey and the 2004 Tsunami.
You have distilled and codified your learnings from those experiences in the landmark publication Disaster and Mass Trauma: Global Perspectives in Post-Disaster Mental Health Management- a practical guide for others in your field that not only reviews a range of valuable therapies such as biofeedback, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, logotherapy and symbolic experimental training, but also gives much needed consideration to the issue of nurturing the care-giver. Your II volumes on Mass Trauma and Emotional Healing around the Globe is a jewel in disaster recovery and psychosocial rehabilitation areas; additionally your book on Forgiveness & Reconciliation is a pathway for conflict transformation and peace building. And you have helped disseminate your knowledge through your teaching at Columbia, Fordham, Hunter College, Pace, John Jay and many other institutions- and through your creation and leadership of a long list of professional societies and advocacy organizations. These include the Association for Trauma Outreach & Prevention (affiliated with the United Nations); the Armenian American Society for Studies on Stress and Genocide; the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies; the Global Society for Nursing and Health; the Mental Health Outreach Programs around the globe in over 32 calamities; the Worldwide Network for Gender Empowerment; the United Nations Non-Governmental Organization Executive Committee; the World Federation for Mental Health; and many others under the umbrella of Meaningfulworld.com.
Dr. Kalayjian, a protégé of yours once wrote of you: “What is extraordinary about my teacher and mentor is her unrelenting commitment to bettering society by unifying minds and hearts; emphasizing likeness in human beings and appreciation of differences. She is steadfast in her optimism that prevention of human-made trauma and resilience post natural disasters can be realized and nurtured through forgiveness, compassion and respect for all humanity and earth.”
No work is more important in this day and age, and few are doing it more effectively than you. For your tremendous contributions to the wellbeing of all, we award you the Distinguished Alumni Award of Teachers College.

Bawa Jain - Undersecretary General UN - World Religions
Bawa Jain, the Secretary-General of The Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders that opened at the United Nations in August 2000, is a visionary leader in the interfaith movement throughout the world. After working closely on the World Peace Summit with the office of the United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Jain committed his life to finding ways that the worldwide religious and spiritual communities can work together as interfaith allies with the United Nations on specific peace, poverty and environmental initiatives.
Mr. Jain traveled extensively for two years on behalf of the creation of The World Council of Religious Leaders, a direct outcome of the Millennium World Peace Summit. The World Council was successfully launched at the United Nations in Bangkok on June 12, 2002 and, at the request of the preeminent world spiritual leaders who were present, Mr. Jain now serves as the first Secretary-General of The World Council. The Council is charged with being a strong resource for and a collaborator with the United Nations and other international and national organizations whose purposes include promoting peace, harmony, tolerance, and mutual respect among human beings and the evolution of world social and economic justice.
In 2001, Bawa Jain was asked by The World Economic Forum to help integrate a religious dimension into the Forum's activities by bringing a delegation of religious leaders to their meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The strategic partnership that was formed between The World Economic Forum and The Millennium World Peace Summit resulted in the launching of the Forum's Religious Initiative. Mr. Jain, who assisted the religious leaders' participation in the Forum's 2002 meeting, continues to develop an integrated framework for world religions, business, and government communities to address world problems collectively.
In addition to these activities, Bawa Jain's visionary contribution to the betterment of humanity is found in three on-going programs that he inaugurated. As founder of The World Movement for Nonviolence, he conceived of The Gandhi-King Award, which fosters the practices and principles of non-violence in daily life. Past recipients include UN General Secretary Kofi-Annan, Nelson Mandela, and Dr. Jane Goodall. As Co-Director of the Season for Nonviolence from 1998-2000, Mr. Jain helped create the second on-going activity—nonviolence youth programs. These programs are now operating in 115 cities in the United States and 15 countries. Finally, as Vice President of the Interfaith Center of New York from 1997 to 2000, Mr. Jain organized an annual Interfaith Service that continues to mark the opening of the United Nations General Assembly.
Committed to the global interfaith movement, Mr. Jain services as a Trustee of the Council for the Parliament of the World's Religions and was its Vice-Chair in 2000. He is active in the United Religions Initiative, where he convened an Indo-Pakistani Dialogue Forum in 1998. Mr. Jain continues to counsel governmental, business and religious organizations on deeper involvement in interfaith activities and global initiatives. He also serves on the Earth Charter Initiative International Resource Team, the Advisory Board of the Center for Religion and Diplomacy, and the Advisory Board of the Earth Council's Collaborative on National Councils of Sustainable Development. Mr. Bawa Jain co-founded the Global Commission for the Preservation of Sacred Sites.
In response to the requests of UN Agencies and governments, Bawa Jain travels around the world to speak on religious diplomacy, spirituality, religion, and peace. He is published and has been the recipient of numerous awards.

Social Business Development
Apolis Activism is an independent contemporary brand that began with dreams and thread. Three brothers — Raan, Shea, and Stenn Parton — created a unique bridge between commerce and sustainable development. Through their travels they discovered stories of struggle and survival from visionaries and activists for change. These experiences shaped their perspective, resulting in a union of ideal and action. They anchored this vision in the word Apolis, which translates as a “global citizen” — where there are no flags and no borders, humanity is our common cause and greatest priority.
The brothers started making garments in 2004 and began embroidering a trademark red stitch on each piece. The sign of relief and an icon for all global citizens committed to quality and change. Apolis Activism applies contemporary design, premium fabrics, and an opportunity to share the value of Trade.
