Cultivating Peace Vermont
Cultivating Peace in our body, speech, and mind
In the spirit of our name, Cultivating Peace Vermont, our aspiration and mission is to cultivate and promote mindfulness: both its meaning and practice in all the peacemaking activities we undertake. We do so, to help both prevent and relieve suffering in our local, regional, and global communities
Cultivating Peace formed in response to a world of increasing polarization, unrest, materialism and violence. Our community offerings include dharma book groups, days of mindfulness, community ceremony, and art sessions to promote reflection, nonviolent action and community connection. We understand that in order to create a peaceful society we must start with our body, speech and mind. As we cultivate peace in ourselves, we cultivate peace in the world.
We offer free online and in person avenues for cultivating peace, learn more in our Peace Actions section. Nurture seeds of peace with us through mindfulness meditation practices.
