Nurturing Our Inner Lives for Peace

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Come examine what having a peaceful inner life really means and how maintaining yours is the foundation for gracefully nurturing the inner lives of children and others. This workshop is designed like a mini-retreat: You will be guided through peace practices, including mindfulness and awareness exercises as well as active multicultural songs and dances—a range of experiences that engage your whole body, mind, and spirit. We hope to inspire your inner life by offering a menu of daily habits that promote deeper peace within yourself and a greater capacity to help spread peace in the world.
