of course today is Summer Solstice 2017 but you know why and how it is today. From 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday June 21st, 2017, the Labyrinth Committee will present a “Summer Solstice Peace Walk” at the Community Labyrinth in Carleton Place.
With this summer evening event, the Committee hopes to focus attention on the need for peace in the world and within ourselves. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools and have even been used for bringing peace and reconciliation between individuals in conflict.
“I believe that walking the path of the labyrinth can bring peace to those who seek it,” says Debby Lytle, a volunteer for The Labyrinth Committee of Carleton Place.
Join us for an evening labyrinth walk and enjoy an opening dance performance by Parvaneh Rowshan, honouring our creativity and sense of self and inner peace, choreographed especially to be performed on the labyrinth. During the walk – the Rhythm and Song Community Choir directed by Jennifer Noxon – will sing several songs with the theme of “Peace”.
Throughout the evening, you will have the opportunity to write a personal message for peace on a maple leaf cut-out – and hang it on the tree on the picnic table.
All are welcome. Refreshments will be provided. You are welcome to picnic in the garden beforehand.
Register your Summer Solstice Peace Walk at the labyrinth and be part of our “150 Walks for Canada’s 150th” commemorative event.
Carleton Place Community Labyrinth is located beside the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum, at 267 Edmund St.
