Casper Peace Collective celebrated the International Day of Peace by gathering at the Bart Rea Learning Circle on the North Platte River. Reflecting on the goodness of the individual and the necessity of community and peace in both, we meditated, joined in a group walk on the labyrinth and a blessing of the earth in all directions. Individuals shared quotes reflecting on peace and a story was read to the children. All the participants, 60+ entered with good spirits into yoga. Embracing the circle, the river, blue sky and mountain, the Little Sun Dance group from Ethete, WY shared five types of native dance accompanied by voice and drum. We closed trying our hands at drumming in a drum circle.
