24-Hour Interfaith Chant for Peace—A Day of Song and Chants for Peace

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 12:00 pm to Saturday, August 19, 2017 - 12:00 pm

As the world continues to struggle with great changes to our society, environment, and economy, finding the place within ourselves that is always at peace is crucial. Chanting is one way to direct our bodies, hearts, and minds with our highest spiritual aspirations and touch the compassion of our hearts.

During the 24-Hour Interfaith Chant for Peace we come together to appreciate each tradition’s unique expression of the universal desire to be free from violence, hatred, and suffering. We form one community and join our voices together, beginning to cultivate the peace and understanding that is so desperately needed in the world.

Each hour of the Chant for Peace is led by a different spiritual tradition. There are times of seated chanting and times of circumambulating the monastery. Anyone and everyone are invited to attend for any length of time. There are beds available for napping and a buffet table available for refreshment throughout the event.

There is no cost for this event. The food will be potluck-style this year, so please consider bringing a dish to share.

This year all donations will be given to Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon's Rapid Refugee Response Fund.
