Weekend Event:
Living Peace Now

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - February 24 @ 4:30 pm

“When you find the love, you find yourself…When your heart feels love, then everything around you is quiet and at peace…Live to love and to know God.”¬†Music of the Soul¬†by Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal.


Living Peace Now

We live in “interesting” times. ¬†Inside the chaos and uncertainty that can threaten to overtake us are hidden blessings. Learn how extreme life tensions can actually move us forward to deep peace, and to better understand ourselves and our relationship to the world. ¬†We hold the possibility, inside, to live more of who we are capable of being. ¬†Conflict is part of life. ¬†Come and learn how to integrate your own relationship with it.

During this weekend, we will explore:

  • Freeing ourselves from self-judgment and limiting beliefs
  • Bringing healing, love and intimacy into our relationships
  • Moving from judging others for their failures to stepping into real responsibility for catalyzing constructive change
  • Connecting with empathy to the hearts of those caught in fear, overwhelm or reactive blame
  • Recognize how others mirror for us both the places that need healing in our own hearts, and who we are becoming through that healing
  • Learning how to return to love and to live the peace we wish to see in the world
  • Deepening our experience of divine love and connection¬†
