Monday is the International Day of Peace and local organizers are inviting the public to take part in a local event from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Parksville Community Park Legacy Labyrinth.
A global meditation called Be the Peace, led by occupational therapist Holly Carnegie Letcher, will take place at noon, part of a wave of silence for world peace will be held globally.
“I would like to offer a gratitude water meditation for inner peace and a labyrinth walk for global peace, but welcome any way that you would like to contribute to this free event,” said Letcher, of Oceanside Pathways 2 Wellness Holistic Health Services. She has also put out a request for a vocalist interested in leading the assembly in singing John Lennon’s Imagine.
Special guests signed up to date include Sharron Hudson of Naam Yoga experience, Shelley Johnson of Oneness Blessings, and Yoga instructor Greer Cummings.
“This is a time for community to come together in unity,” said Letcher. “If you have a poem or song or dance or anything else you would like to offer, please let me know. All are welcome.”
