Holistic education is an education for peace, to build a culture that honors the life in all its manifestations. Promotes the development of an awareness of Concord, solidarity and cooperation. This position of peace has cultural consequences such as tolerance and patience toward others, accepting differences as complementary and not contradictory aspects, where instead of losing the identity, this will deepen, with a vision that harmony is the essence of life and not the contradiction. Peace provides an internal order, living learning peace is a source of happiness.

The dialogue is creative and links to people and societies, where it comes to discern together with respect, democracy, tolerance, finding the best solution for everyone to win.
