Suggested $10 USD donation RSVP on our website: http://www.soulspaceinterfaith.org/register-for-a-retreat.html Join us as we listen to three speakers from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share their thoughts about what each of the three faiths teaches about living peacefully with others, and how women can promote peace in many ways from social action or service to simple acts of kindness. We will hear their suggestions about how to stay peaceful in a turbulent world, how we all have the power to be a vessel of peace, and how we can be the change we want to see in others by the way we live our lives.
