Multi-faith meditation gathering in Comox

Multi-faith meditation gathering in Comox

A new support for world peace is being inaugurated in the Comox Valley. On April 14 from 5-5:45 p.m. a multi-faith One World Chant and Meditation gathering will be held at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Dr. It will take place year-round on the second Saturday of each month.

The gathering will consist of meditation periods, chants, and short readings from the various spiritual traditions. It is an opportunity to bring all the traditions together as a local expression of global unity.

“We want to provide this space and time for the valley’s diverse voices to be united in the message of peace and healing,” said Peggy Zimmerman, one of the co-ordinators. “Whether one views the living energy within and connecting everyone as the Buddha nature, Allah, the Christos, the Great Spirit, Yahweh, Brahman, or by any other name – all are welcome.”

In addition to seating, the venue has open floor space for prayer rugs and kneeling benches. For more information, call 250-339-3966.
