37th Annual Peace Camp • June 28-30
The Modesto Peace/Life Center’s 37th Annual Peace Camp in the Sierra will take place on June 28-30 at Camp Peaceful Pines on Clark Fork Rd. off Hwy 108. We’ll enjoy a weekend of workshops, good food, hikes, singing, crafts, talent show, recreation, and stimulating people of all ages in a beautiful mountain setting. Families and individuals are welcome. Register early for a discount.
Leng Nou will present the Saturday workshop, “Courageous Conversations.” The art of civil discourse is quickly fading, and we need more practitioners with this skill set if we want to effectively build community. In this workshop participants will explore the dynamics of a conversation and learn skills to help build their capacity to engage in difficult conversations ranging from political, social, and cultural issues. Participants will learn how developing curiosity and nurturing deep listening skills are practical ways to breach the polarizing rifts in our society. Leng Nou is a mindfulness practitioner, and draws upon her experience as an American Leadership Forum Senior Fellow as well as her time with the Modesto Peace/Life Center.
Camp Peaceful Pines, on Clark Fork Rd. off Hwy. 108 in the Stanislaus National Forest features kitchen and bathroom facilities, rustic cabins, platform tents, and a special needs cabin. Depending on the number of campers, cabins may be shared. Campers share in meal preparation, cleanup, and other work.
