Learn to Meditate


Learn to Meditate


This Wednesday: Learn to Meditate

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances. (http://www.how-to-meditate.org)

Building Peace Series Continues in August


You may have noticed that some of the Museum's programs are titled "Building Peace." This is an on-going series that may feature a compelling film, an outstanding piece of music, or a special speaker.  Interesting discussions usually follow.  

Usually held on Sunday afternoons, Building Peace is all about how to make the world a better place.  Watch for details about the free August 27th program when Kathy Rowell, Professor of Sociology at Sinclair Community College, will discuss Children's Rights and Immigration at the US/Mexican border.  A film and discussion will be included.  

Interesting ideas for the Building Peace series are welcome.  Please contact Kathy Rowell at Katherine.Rowell@sinclair.edu for more information.

August 27 at the Museum

The new exhibit will continue to expand as the crisis evolves...

Immigration Exhibit More Vital than Ever After Recent Decisions in Washington 

In light of our current social and political climate, we reexamine the role of immigration within both the Dayton community and the nation at large.

“Immigration: Our Shared Dream Revisited” scrutinizes the reasons migrants leave their homes, illustrates their roles within society and presents a human face of the marginalized.    

Come and experience the relevance of this exhibit first seen in part at the museum three years ago.  In weeks to come, the exhibit will grow to include new material related to this moment in the U.S and worldwide. 

We’ll keep you posted as the exhibit grows.   The conversation continues, ever more urgently.

Cities of Peace

Exciting Announcement!

On April 27th, Cities of Peace, Inc., was granted Special Consultative Status with the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).   

International Cities of Peace will now have two permanent passes to U.N. headquarters and be able to participate on committees and deliver oral statements and submit written statements to be circulated by the Secretary-General's office.

Thanks to the thousands of volunteers, city leaders, and peacemakers who have made this possible. It's great news and a tipping point to greater opportunities.
