Sonnie & Jim McFarland

From the moment they met on a blind date more than 45 years ago, Dr. Jim and Sonnie McFarland knew their lives were brought together, to not only learn and grow as a couple but to share unconditional love with the world. For more than a half century combined the McFarland’s have studied, practiced and taught peace education topics including: community building, conflict resolution, effective parenting techniques, healthy interpersonal communication and self management awareness. Their greatest desire is to provide instruments to help all people, adults and children, to unveil their true authentic nature and manifest love throughout their lives; thereby creating a peaceful world.

Sonnie is recognized around the globe as a visionary and pioneer in the field of education for peace and consults nationally and internationally on community building, effective parenting, adult centering techniques and peaceful living skills for children and adults. She has worked in education for more than 40 years as a Montessori classroom teacher, head of school and consultant. She was active on a multitude of boards and educational committees, has written and published articles in numerous magazines and has authored several books. In 2011, she was awarded the Living Legacy Award by the American Montessori Society.
