International Day of Peace

Join us Sept. 21st from 6:30pm to 8pm as we celebrate the International Day of Peace. Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, International Day of Peace is observed every year on September 21st and provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute to building a "Culture of Peace" for all. This year, BBY will be hosting an event to celebrate peace and affirm our commitment to a community of love and inclusion. 

At 6:30pm we will host a guided meditation at the studio, followed by a Peace Tree Ceremony. Based on "Wish Tree" by artist Yoko Ono, participants will have the opportunity to write a wish or prayer for peace on a small piece of paper, and attach it to the live tree in the studio. This tree will serve as a reminder of our dedication to peace in our community. After our guided meditation and Peace Tree Ceremony, there will be a slow flow practice to the music of the Beatles from 7-8pm. 

We will close our practice with a ceremony around our Peace Pole. This is a symbol of world peace that the phrase "May Peace Prevail on Earth" is enscribed in many languages around its base. 

Both the Peace Tree and the Peace Pole will become permanent fixtures at Beach Belly's, in our meditation garden beside the studio. 

Seats for this event are limited, and all the proceeds will be donated to Southern Poverty Law Association, to aid in their fight to make our country a place of peace and acceptance for all. Please register in advance if you plan to attend.
