You can participate in developing the Berkeley Community Peace Labyrinth! Here's how:
Come to Our Events:
In winter months, events tend to occur around the winter solstice. In the summer months, we try to have at least one event per month. We feel we can increase that, with your participation and your help in matching us up to existing community groups who would also enjoy using the space. To sign up for events, go to our FaceBook Page or join our e-list and click the link from the newsletter. Please R.S.V.P. to each event to let us know you're coming. For location information, follow this Google Maps link.
Please be aware that since we only construct labyrinths at certain times during the year, a labyrinth in the Marina location won't always be there. If you have an interest and could see developing an event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participate Actively in Support Of Our Goals:
As each phase of the process moves forward, different types of participation/skills are needed. It could be outreach, fundraising, event promotion or facilitation, help with building interim labyrinths or perhaps even laying down a permanent one.
You can always email us to find out more or review some projects we've currently got going by reading through what we're talking about on Facebook. After you get a taste, we hope you will see the opportunity to be inventive, as well as receive for yourself that "you know you need it" time out as well!
You can also check out our Current Projects page for more ideas about participation.
Donate to Our Cause:
Sometimes, we meet people who are just passing by, and literally tell us they need something like this in
their lives. It could be people who see the gatherings as an innovative way to congregate. Or people who are wishing they could slow down and lead a more balanced life. Or those who are grieving for a family member who has died.
Whatever your circumstance, your support will really mean something for both individuals and the community for years to come. And there's another special opportunity as we get closer to building the permanent labyrinth. Wherever you're located, you can honor a special person or event by sponsoring a specific part of the labyrinth pattern. You can do this as an individual, family or group, whatever feels best.
