Living Peaceably: An Invitation to a multi-state Peace Celebration

When: September 5,[masked]:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Where:
College of Metaphysics
163 Moon Valley Road

We warmly invite you to join us in person, in spirit, and in support on Saturday, September 5th, 2009, at the College of Metaphysics for a celebration of peace.


The School of Metaphysics is proud to be hosting "Living Peaceably begins by Thinking Peacefully" in support of the Parliament of the World?s Religions. For one day only, the school will convene a multi-state peace celebration to unite faiths, families and cultures on the beautiful 1,500-acre campus of the College of Metaphysics in Windyville, MO. Speakers and attendees will collectively focus on answering the questions:
"What does it mean to think peacefully?" and
"How do you live peaceably?"


Featured speaker is visionary Will Bowen, best-selling author of A Complaint Free World. After opening prayers for the seven continents, two sets of breakout sessions will be held under the outdoor tents. They will include:
  • panel discussions of multiple faiths and Native American cultures
  • Our1Planet.org, with Kenn Parks
  • World Dreams Peace Bridge, with Jean Campbell
  • PeaceJam (for youth), with Scott Minea and Jill Flanke
  • Grandmother Silverstar of the Cherokee Nation
  • Nelson Kraus, M.D.
  • other groups and individuals to be announced
  • A special performance of The Invitation, in which eight Nobel Peace prize laureates come to life and give their words and insights, will conclude the gathering.



Also during the day?
  • listen to inspiring peace stories and music from other cultures and faiths
  • offer prayers at the Healing Wall and Reflecting Pool
  • place a tile mindfully in the Peace Mandala
  • absorb the sacred Silent Fire
  • walk the Peace Labyrinth
  • meditate in the Gazebo by the pond
  • experience the organic orchard and gardens
  • meet new, like-minded friends from every corner of the country
  • learn about the Parliament in Melbourne, Australia in December
