2018 International Day of Peace

Through our partnership with Goldenstein Gallery, L’Auberge de Sedona will host a Peace Meditation lead by artist and speaker Sherab Khandro, in celebration of International Day of Peace on Friday, September 21, 9:30 am. Every year, September 21 is the International Day of Peace, which was first established in 1981. It is a United Nations sanctioned annual day of peace that is observed worldwide, this year marks the 37th anniversary.  Warring groups have been known to lay down their arms for the day in recognition of this peace movement. Sedona is an International City of Peace in support of global peace.

The Peach Meditation at L’Auberge will include a 10-minute talk setting the tone, a 10-15 minute guided meditation, and then an opportunity to talk and ask questions. It is a wonderful way to start your day in Sedona as well as to start another year with peace as a powerful intention.

Sherab (Shey) Khandro is a featured Artist in Residence at L’Auberge in September and her paintings and sculpture are on display throughout the property.  She is a renowned artist and speaker, giving an Embracing Balance talk the evening of 9/21 at the Sedona Creative Life Center. Last year she gave a TedX Sedona talk on Small Acts of Immeasurable Benefit. Her bronze Amitabha: Red Buddha of Infinite Light is displayed by the entrance to the workout area and also is the crowning piece in the Stupa and Peace Park as shown through TripAdvisor and Amitabha Stupa Peace Park through NatGeo Tourism.

Guests can also follow the Peace Meditation Trail Goldenstein Gallery is creating throughout the month as Shey leads peace meditations at the Gallery, L’Auberge, Sedona Chamber of Commerce, and other locations around Sedona.

In Sedona, from September 1st-30th, please join us as we support Peace and the Arts with Every Day Peace, a special Citywide art exhibit by renowned local and regional artists that includes a “Peace Trail” of guided meditations led by artist and speaker Sherab Khandro throughout the month.
The Every Day Peace exhibit and events are a reminder and call for peace – every day. Many find peace in art. The first Peace Trail guided meditation is Saturday, September 1st at 9:30 am at Goldenstein Gallery. Everyone is welcome. The Opening Reception for the Everyday Peace Exhibit is Friday, September 7th, from 5-8 pm at Goldenstein Gallery. There will be a Toast for Peace on the hour where guests can share their favorite peace saying. This exhibit features a large group exhibition of fine local and regional artists that extends beyond our gallery and throughout Sedona.

“I believe all of our artist’s pieces have a peaceful intention that is realized by the artist as they create and by the viewer when they experience the piece. In this way art is very healing,” says Linda Goldenstein.

Join us as we celebrate this important day and join together for the greater good.
