The second event, offered by our friends in Southern Arizona District 5500, will be held on November 7 from 9:am-noon.  Entitled Inner Peace in a Time of Conflict
Inner peace (or peace of mind) refers to a deliberate state of psychological or spiritual calm despite the potential presence of stressors.  Being "at peace" is considered by many to be a state where our mind performs at an optimal level with a positive outcome. But people have difficulties embracing their inner spirituality because everyday stressors get the best of them; finding peace and happiness in the little joys of life can seem difficult, and results do not seem all that gratifying. 
Participants will be professionally guided by The Center for Community Dialogue through a workshop to help us understand why Inner Peace is so hard to find and keep, and how to better manage Inner Peace.
