Day Two: Citi Performing Arts Residency: Peace on earth!

Day two: Peace on earth; Goodwill to man. What does that mean? Peace on earth means, no fighting, no war. Goodwill means doing good things for other people. Ahimsa is a yoga precept, which means non-violence to yourself, to others, to the planet.

What does Peace mean? A state of harmony between groups or people; a freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety and obsession; silence, stillness.

Different ways to say peace:
1. Om shanti: I am peace.
2. Pax: Latin
3. Shalom: Hebrew
4. La Paix- French
5. La Paz: Spanish
6. Lape (accent over the e): Haitian Creole

Peace idioms:
1. Peace out!
2. Rest in peace.
3. Peace be with you.
4. Keep the peace.
5. Make peace.
6. Leave in peace.
7. A peace offering.
8. Peace of mind.
9. Be at peace.

There is the Peace Corps: an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship (started by President John. F. Kennedy)

Songs: Peace Like A River with movements (also Yogini Went  To See, which was asked for repeatedly.

The kids shared a beautiful and peaceful Savasana and “Sa Ta Na Ma” Meditation.

Namaste!
