Transforming Hate Community Meditation features gentle yoga and reflection at CAH

LEWISTON, Idaho - The LCSC Center for Arts & History (CAH) presents Transforming Hate Community Meditation – gentle yoga and reflection, as part of the Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate Speakers Series.  This event led by Meredith Robbins and Jeanette Gara-Betzold, yoga instructors from Lewis-Clark State College, will take place Friday, November 1, at 10:00 a.m. and again at 7:00 p.m. at CAH.

According to Robbins and Gara-Betzold, the Transforming Hate Community Meditation sessions will be one hour each and will include an activity called "co-listening," gentle yoga, and meditation on loving-kindness.  These practices embody wisdom from the Buddha:  "Hate is not conquered by hate; hate is conquered by love.  This is a law eternal."

The Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate Speakers Series is brought to the Center for Arts & History through sponsorships from:  LCSC Continuing Education & Community Events, Shekinah Christian Community, and through grants from US Bancorp, Idaho Commission on the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts.
