Dances of Universal Peace
Saturday October 5, 2019
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In the Convent Main Chapel
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others. Building on the work begun by Samuel L. Lewis in the 1960s, they promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are no performers nor audience: new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together.

Fall Associates’ retreat:
Cultivating Compassion for the Environment
Saturday December 1, 2019
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
At the Retreat House
Compassion is a core belief in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. How do our traditions define compassion? How are we told to behave in order to live a life of compassion for ourselves and others? We will explore texts, stories and historical examples from our faith traditions that teach compassion and discuss how contemporary society presents challenges to us as we try to live a life of compassion. Join Sister Eleanor Francis, Rabbi Debra Smith and Dr. Shabiha Sheikh for an intriguing text study and discussion.
Contact Rabbi Debra Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or Sister Eleanor Francis at 973-543-4641 x3 email@example.com.
