The Year of Living Peacefully!

Center for Living Peace
Join the Center for Living Peace in Irvine Saturday for an all-day celebration honoring its first-year of making good happen (and pick up a cupcake, too!). The Center will be offering free family-oriented classes focusing on compassion and living peace from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 
In just the past year, the Center for Living Peace, in partnership with UC Irvine, has already brought high-profile speakers to inspire leadership, charity, education and sustainability at its Living Peace Series, including Charlize Theron, Sir Richard Branson and just last week the Dalai Lama.
 
The center is an important resource for connecting the community with classes, lectures and programs dedicated to its mission of inner growth and development, peace making and effective communication, protecting the environment, arts and culture.
 
On Saturday, the day’s events include Tibetan-inspired art projects, a screening of the documentary “Peace One Day,” story-time from children’s author Mina Javaherbin, new earth drumming, Smiling Monkey Yoga for kids, Qi Gong, and Shambhala meditation and more.
 
The Center for Living Peace is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and is located at 4139 Campus Drive in Irvine. For more information, call 949.854.5500 or visit goodhappens.org/events.
