Peace…only peace…

Dear Community,
As we see life unfolding with human beings continuing to cause each other tremendous harm, wars being waged, and many of us feeling helpless, sad and bewildered…
Please join us in prayers for peace all day every day…and in a specific, musical, collective, tangible, beautiful way this evening.

Tonight, our usual Chant and Pray evening will be focused on Peace, intentions for peace as they are woven through many, many wisdom traditions, our inner peace, blessings for peace, compassion and harmony between nations, between human beings…peace for all. War is never the answer. Never has been. Never will be. Peace. Peace from the beginning. Peace now and always.
