“We hope this event will provide an opportunity to bring people together to experience activities that nurture and unite us in a common quest for world peace and to be mindful of our common humanity,” said Elizabeth Kabalka, executive director of the Center for Mindful Living.
In addition to children’s activities, a new Pies for Peace component will include a variety of pies provided by dozens of area churches and faith-based institutions. “We are bringing people together over a free piece of pie to create conversation and a unifying experience,” explained Kabalka.
The Paths to Peace event is free of charge, and will feature labyrinth walks for adults and children led by Ellen Simak and Margy Oehmig, along with an introduction to mindfulness practices, yoga, Qigong, art, dance and more! The afternoon will conclude with free pieces of pie for all attending. If your church or faith-based organization is interested in donating pies for the event, or for more information, go to centermindfulliving.org or check it out on Facebook.
The Center for Mindful Living is a 501c3 nonprofit that educates the community about the benefits of mindfulness and provides opportunities for people to develop a mindfulness practice. These practices lead to more joy, balance, and compassion. Our mission is to empower people to decrease their stress and increase their well-being.
