Peace Village Workshop and Meditation


In this insightful session, we will explore how our every thought, word and action is our creation. Situations come to us from the outside, but our responses are completely our choice. Our pain is really coming from within, and the healer is also within!

We will watch a show of Sister Shivani from her “The Healer Within” series, and discuss among ourselves how it applies to our lives. We will finish with guided meditation.

Thursday, June 29th from 6-7:30pm
