Visions of Peace: Past, Present and Future

This Family Saturday is dedicated to remembering peaceful local and global heroes while re-imagining peace locally-in our homes and communities-and around the world. The workshops will explore multiple dimensions of peace through symbol creation, movement, mind-body practices, and film screenings.
