Prayers for World Peace | Sundays 11am-12:15pm
Starts Sunday September 3rd!
Without first developing inner peace, world peace will remain impossible to achieve. We all have within us the potential for peace and happiness. Cultivating this potential creates the harmony we seek. Each class includes a relaxing breathing meditation, a teaching, a contemplative meditation, and chanted Prayers for World Peace.
Prayers for World Peace is family friendly! All ages are welcome.
