The mind can go in a thousand directions,
but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
At 5:30 pm. on Thursday June 19th, the Labyrinth Committee will present our second “Walk in Peace” event at the Community Labyrinth in Carleton Place. With this early evening event, the Committee hopes to focus attention on the need for peace in the world and within ourselves.
Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools and have been used for bringing peace and reconciliation between individuals in conflict. “If we can learn to find peace within ourselves, we can bring this peaceful energy into our community and the world.” says Phyl Drennan, a volunteer for The Labyrinth Committee of Carleton Place.
Special guests have been invited to address the theme:
Jeff Mills, Community Development Coordinator for Mills Community Support in Almonte, will speak about healthy/peaceful communities.
Faye Lavergne, owner of Brush Strokes Gallery in Carleton Place, will address finding peace as you "Lighten your Step". Lavergne is also a counselor whose focus is on personal & community development integrating social consciousness.
Bring along a picnic supper, a chair or a blanket. Be prepared to enjoy music provided by harpist Marion Miller, take a walk on the labyrinth, enjoy the beautiful gardens and find inspiration from our guest speakers.
All are welcome.
Carleton Place Community Labyrinth is located beside the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum, at 267 Edmund St. For more information, contact Debby 613-257-1014.
