Meditation for Peace and Nonviolence

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Barbara Briggs-Letson

On Sept. 27th, for the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions, sixteen people gathered in the center of Sebastopol, northern CA, to process into the Sunday Farmers Market and hold a silent meditation for 15 minutes. We held signs saying PEACE and NONVIOLENCE and made our quiet statement of intention, sending good energies into the center of the community. Then, we left and melted into the crowds.
