Thank you for your interest in this project. Here are further details of the event.
Normally at this time of year we would be hosting a Being Peace Weekend retreat. This includes an overnight stay in Palestine (for those already in the area we don't really want people flying in for a weekend we have the longer Being Peace retreat for people outside of the middle east).
On the weekend we would listen to the villagers, learning about their life and their struggles, and learning from their resilience and inspiring joy in life. We would also do some positive actions alongside them, as a contribution to the productivity and beauty of the land of Palestine, and as a further way to foster friendship, solidarity, and connection.
This evening is an opportunity to replicate some of what would have happened:
Although we can't work along side each other in the fields and villages, we can still meet to hear about each other's lives.
We will meet at 20.00 Palestine time (18.00 UK time) to open the session. The whole meeting will last for about an hour and a half to two hours. We will begin with a short meditation together to steady our attention, and attune to the group's intention for the evening.
From there we will begin a conversation, this will be started by people from the village of Deir Istiya, or other towns and villages we have a connection with sharing how their life is these days.
The meeting will take place via Zoom - for security's sake the link will be sent to you only when you register your email address below.
SanghaSeva will cover all the costs of putting this evening together. But we would like to use this meeting as a way to gather a donation we can make a contribution for those in Palestine who are struggling with little or no income at this time.
As some of you may know there have been some security worries with online meetings recently. We wish to make this a safe place to meet so we can have an interesting, enlightening, and sensitive conversation. For this reason we are not publishing the meeting ID on our website.
