A Unifying paradigmn

At present, humans all across the earth are connected and aware that we all share this home. We all share a common vision for a safe, beautiful,

vital planet earth, for our children and the future generations.

What does tribe mean to you?  At the most basic level a tribe is a group of people who choose to help each other and unite for life.


Imagine yourself as an early human, facing the challenges of survival.

In this moment it is natural to form a connection with family and community

 to assess what is needed for safety, shelter, and nourishment, and communicate and work together.

Why World Peace Tribe?  In the past there have been many tribes,

  many countries, many groups of humans who have seen themselves as separate and often against “the other.”  This worldview of separation and

   competition has caused damage and destruction that is now affecting us all,  with a huge amount of our resources and energy focused on war and profit at the expense of the wellbeing of people and the environment.

    What if we can shift this by changing the way we relate to the world.  We know that we are one human family sharing one beautiful planet.  Every time we choose to collaborate and help each other, share our food, share a smile or hug, give a peace sign, pick up trash or make a choice in kindness, it is for our highest good and that of the whole earth family.


Inner Peace, Outer Peace, World Peace.


World Peace Tribe Vision

        World Peace Tribe is a global movement, focused on creating ways of life centered in unity,  peace and  alliance with nature.  It is a paradigm shift from competition to collaboration, which empowers us to create vibrant, harmonious life on earth.

Our Mission

World Peace Tribe is weaving a global alliance of solution oriented community, through Peace Sticks, Peace education, Shining Lion Music, Eco Peace Centers, and World Peace Gatherings.


We are in service to Mother Earth, the children, and the future generations.  We are grateful to connect and collaborate with individuals and organizations who share this purpose.


 Shine and Amaya are emissaries of peace for the US Department of Peace, the Pakistani Department of Peace, The United Nations, and International Cities of Peace.

How can we start?

 To shift humanities’ way of life from war centered to Peace centered. We must refocus

We can start by making a sacred stick from the branch of a tree,  reconnecting people with nature.

We use these Peace Sticks to reconnect people by playing in collaboration and using them as talking sticks to give and receive communication from the heart.

We rekindle community through the collaborative process of creating Eco Peace       Centers.

 Peace Sticks is a game, an education tool, a wellness practice, a carrier of peace culture, a sustainable community eco business, and a unifying way of living.

He is a passionate father of two, and deeply committed to children and the future generations.

He holds an honors degree in Biology and minors in Psychology, Philosophy, and Spanish from University of San Diego. Shine chose to major in Biology due to his desire to help bridge humanity with the natural world. Growing up he had incredible friendships and communication with his dogs. He felt that many of the problems faced by humanity are due to a sense of separation and/or superiority to nature. Both of his parents study and work with plants and trees, and actively led the family on backpacking trips in the Sierras and beyond to learn first hand about wildlife.

He was deeply influenced by Native American teachings, where animals and plants are regarded as  kin.  Shine’s personal mission  is to foster the human connection and love for nature.


Just prior to graduating university, he experienced a life changing   event in Ojai, California. Two Elders performed an energy healing on his younger sister, whom had been extremely sick with an undiagnosed illness for one year. This initiated the beginning of her recovery and simultaneously catalyzed Shine into a new field of possibility.

With his surfboards and instruments, he set out on a global quest to learn from ancient cultures about movement practices, healing, shamanism, and nature.  He has traveled to over 15 countries and speaks several languages.  


He has trained with masters of Taoism, Yoga, Capoeira and Shamans from the Americas, Africa, Hawaii, and Indonesia. He learned Chi Gung and Tai Chi sword with Chinese Martial Arts Grand Master Zhou, and Earth Wisdom with the Council of Indigenous Grandmothers. 

When Shine and his bother spontaneously invented Peace Sticks

it opened a new way to connect with people in collaboration and flow state.  As Shine continued to develop the methodology and way of teaching his diverse learning background naturally synthesized to create a transformational experience to awaken primal life force energy. 

These methods connect to ancient tribal wisdom, and focus on healing and reconnecting human beings to our true nature, community and the earth.


Shine is a Holistic Life Coach, Therapist and instructor of Yoga, Meditation, Chi Gung, Energy Healing, Sound Therapy, Peaceful Communication and Adventure Therapy. Shine has worked with Peace Sticks in the fields of Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation, Corporate Team Building, Professional Athletic Training, At-Risk Youth, and Education.
