Mindful Peace Building in the East Bay

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.05.15

Organizer Lyn Fine recently held two Campaign Nonviolence events. They gathered in Berkeley, CA for readings from Catherine Ingram’s “In The Footsteps of Gandhi”, showed video clips from Richard Attenborough film, “Gandhi” (1982) as well as the TV Series “A Force More Powerful”.  They also held a sitting/walking meditation, mindful eating, and chanting.

They also organized a gathering to discuss the pros and cons of a tree removal project in the East Bay hills.  Their goal was to deepen their understanding, compassion, and clarity as they listened with an open heart and looked deeply into diverse perspectives related to this East Bay Regional Parks tree-clearing project.
