Native Teachings at "Walk in Peace"

From  5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday June 18th, the Labyrinth Committee will present "Walk in Peace" 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 even 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:
Francine Desjardins, Sunflower, Watching Woman of the Bear Clan, will share teachings on peace and the medicine wheel.

Chad Clifford, Blueberry Mountain Flutes (maker) and soundscapes recordist will play his native-style flute during the labyrinth walk.

Bring along a picnic supper, a chair or a blanket, and be prepared to enjoy the gardens and find inspiration from our guest speaker. Participate in the making of the peace walk dream catcher and enjoy a labyrinth walk accompanied by native-style flute music.

All are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.

Carleton Place Community Labyrinth is located beside the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, at 267 Edmund St.
