Prayer Mats for Peace - Please come and join the conversation.

Local women come together to talk about peace and the idea that Islam is a peaceful religion.  They work together to create a prayer mat created by local artist Mehrangiz Modaress Tabatabaei.

Event/Project Discription: We believe it is important to remind our community that Islam is a peaceful religion.  We hope to do this by encouraging Muslim and non-Muslim women from our local community to work together to create one or two beautiful mats which celebrate peace through the context of Islam.  Local artist Mehrangiz Modaress Tabatabaei will work with women from the Women’s Friendship Group, Glen Dhu Primary School Conversation Group, TasTAFE and the Migrant Resource Centre to plan and begin working on the project.  The mat will then be taken to the ground floor of LINC Launceston where members of the general public will be invited to join these women for conversations and creation of the mats.  Once finished, the mats will be displayed on the first floor in LINC.  The project will be documented and also shown in LINC.

Mehrangiz Modaress Tabatabaei will be working at LINC on Friday the 29th July and Saturday 30th July so that the general public may also join the conversations creating the mats.

Business Hours for LINC: Thursday 9:30am–6pm Friday 9:30am–7pm  Saturday 9:30am–2pm Sunday Closed  Tuesday 9:30am–6pm   Wednesday 9:30am–6pm

Labyrinth Walk – A Pathway to Peace

   An invitation to journey on the labyrinth path; offering you a place and time to reflect on stillness and peace within yourself, your community and for the global family. 

The labyrinth teaches us that if we keep putting one foot in front of the other we can quiet the mind and find our centre. 

Come as you are or with your family and friends. Walk the healing path for peace for the first time or as an experienced pilgrim.

 

“Peace starts within each one of us. When we have an inner peace we can be at peace with those around us.” Dalai Lama

 

 When: Friday 29th July. You are welcome to come any time between 5.00 p.m - 6.30 p.m.

Dance in a circle of peace

Dance in a circle of peace

Group: Launceston Circle Dance Group.

9.45 to 11.45 every Monday

11 July, 18 July, 25 July, 1 August and 8 August

Event: Participatory dancing

Join us as we dance simple, gentle, meditative dances in a circle of peace. Traditional folk dances from Europe were the foundation for the Sacred/Circle dance movement which celebrates 40 years this July. Communities where dancing was mainly in circles were recognised as more peaceful, unified, democratic and egalitarian. Our music and dances come from many communities and cultures - including modern choreographies based on similar steps.

We dance every Monday - including most Public Holidays - and all dances are taught as needed by the participants of the day.

Venue: St Catherine's Hall, 190 Penquite Rd Norwood (next to IGA)
