On February 19, 2011, human rights activist Richard Reoch will be visiting the Center for Living Peace to lead the first of a four-part series on cultivating inner and outer peace. The beginning of the series opens with the question, “What is Living Peace?”. Delving deep into this question, participants will explore the definition of living peace and how it is applicable to their own lives. Richard Reoch will guide the discussion and exercises based around these ideas in order to discover more about how we experience living peace on a personal level, and reflect that into our respective communities. The agenda for the day includes presentations, dialogue exercises, and meditation.
