“Peace Day” or the International Day of Peace is observed around the world each year on 21 September. On this day each year, the United Nations calls on all nations and people to put down their weapons and reaffirm their commitment to living in harmony with one another. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace. Every year they put forth a different theme, this year we will be, “Shaping Peace Together”.
Streamed live on Facebook and through the Awake TV Network.

September 10, 4pm: “The Personal Work of Transforming Prejudice” teaching and discussion with Conflict Resolution strategist Sraddha Hartung of Seven Centers Yoga.
Where do our biases come from? How do our personal biases shape our culture? This discussion looks at the current issues of bias and prejudice at all levels through the lens of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The practice of the sutras leads us to a deeper understanding of the roots of our conflicts and how our relationships can contribute to greater harmony in all our experiences.

September 17, 6-7pm: “A Peace Talk with Grandfather Gandhi” workshop for young children and parents with founder and director of Growing Peaceful Hearts, Ana Hansen.
During this peace discussion for young children and parents, the children will hear a story by Arun Gandhi named ‘Change: A Grandfather Gandhi Story.’ The story sweetly addresses peace topics such as passive violence and non-violence or ahimsa. You are invited to do a meditation on non-violence together with your children. This peace talk will close with a Q&A and an opportunity for discussion with participants.
