In the face of yet another major war, the Global Peace Index continues to reflect the decline in global peace and the growing disparity between more and less peaceful countries. Rigpa Australia invites you to join us to participate and contributing to this year’s International Day of Peace, exploring and reflecting on how we as individuals can help, or deal with our feelings of helplessness.
It is said that for a peaceful world we need a world of peaceful people. Every one of us can bring more peace to ourselves and consequently contribute to a more peaceful world. Rigpa’s teachers will guide us in reflection, meditation and compassion practices that you can take with you into your daily life.
Join us to understand more about peace, both global and personal, at Rigpa’s centre in Newtown, alongside Patricia Garcia AO from the Institute of Economics and Peace, who will be delving into the Global Peace Index and what it tells us, and importantly learning about the Pillars of Peace, those attributes that are consistently shown to be the bases of peaceful communities, large and small.
The 2022 theme for the International Day of Peace is “End racism. Build peace.” The United Nations are working towards a world free of racism and racial discrimination. A world where compassion and empathy overcome suspicion and hatred. In this light, we have chosen to give the funds donated during the evening to the Uluru Statement from the Heart, winner of the Sydney Peace Prize 2022
