Peace and Healing Vigil Series

At the core of our being is a compassion that embraces all life forms, and a wisdom that recognizes our intimate connection with all creation.  Now more than ever, we need to nurture and develop this understanding for the healing of our world.

We invite you to join us in chant, meditation, poetry and song to support and celebrate our  collective opening of hearts and minds.  Our Wednesday vigils aspire to cultivate compassion, wisdom and courage to skillfully respond to the challenges of our time.

The next series of Wednesday vigils will start start at noon March 22nd, continuing  through May 10th.

Meet at or near the fountain at the front grounds of the British Columbia Legislature. Should your group be interested in helping to lead one or more of the vigils, please contact us at: 250.598.3672 or cwcw323-at-hotmail.com
