  History of the PeaceClinic Institute
In 1974 PeaceClinic Institute began as a book project by Arthur Joquel and Chloe Joquel. Art died that year and Chloe seached for ways of making their dreams come true. In 2001 she created the first website for the PeaceClinic Institute and began to collect ideas for a peace teaching organization. She searched old records and databases, talked to other peace educators, and finally launched the PeaceClinic Institute from her home/office in Oceanside, California.  Chloe credits the growth and success of the PeaceClinic Institute to the many  volunteers and Peace Practitioners throughout the U.S. and the world.

Arthur Louis Joquel II, 1919-1974
Anthropologist, Historian, Futurist, Educator, Author, and World Citizen.


 The Challenge of Space was published in 1954 by House Warven in Los Angeles. Out of print,  copies can be purchased through

Dr. Joquel was an author and educator in the fields of anthropology, world history, United Nations studies, and Elizabethan drama. He taught in public high schools and community colleges in California and Arizona. He wrote nearly fifty science fiction short stories, published a scifi magazine, and was known to some of the most famous scifi authors including Forrest Ackerman. He organized two future studies groups and had supportive friends who shared his desire for world peace. His closest friend and cousin, Robert Formhals, was an author and an attorney. Their ideals and literary contributions to world peace and freedom movements have been an inspiration to all of us at the PeaceClinic Institute. His first book, The Challenge of Space, was published in 1954.  A short story, the Cosmic Parallel, appears in the book, Ackermanthology, compiled by Forrest J. Ackerman. Both are available through

Poko Petek, 1919-1972,  Artist/Painter
Beverly Petek, became a respected painter of Southwestern Native American sacred tribal ceremonies. Her work has appeard in Arizona Highways Magazine (1972) and on the cover of a Grolier publication, the Science Yearbook (1969) and other art publications. Invited to ceremonial dances, she could not photograph them. She sketched the "snake dances" and "rain dances" from memory. Poko lived in Phoenix, Arizona and traveled to Hopi and Navajo reservations in Arizona and New Mexico. Her love and tolerance for all spiritual beliefs inspired the Founder of the PeaceClinic Institute.


Chloe Joquel Freeland, Founder and Director of the PeaceClinic Institute, believes that world peace begins at home with the individual. She has dedicated her life to making a difference in lives of victims of violence, abuse and neglect.  She encourages public awareness of the three fold aspects of peace.

Her first volunteer for the PCI was her late husband, Rich Freeland (1939-2005). Rich encouraged her to develop the ideology for the PCI and he often wrote press releases and took photos of the PeaceClinic's local activities. He was a fantastic entertainer, guitarist and vocalist. He made us all happy and we miss him very much.

Chloe offers free counseling sessions through her own company, Creative Coaching Institute to victims of domestic violence and other violent crimes. In 2004 she founded the Cultural Creatives Society, an organization dedicated to the exploration of innovative and creative ideas for the betterment of people everywhere. Contact:
