Celebrating Peace on the International Day of Peace 

Peace... it’s something that we all want; for ourselves, for our family, for our community, for our planet. This festival day celebrates the International Day of Peace and helps cultivate peace in our communities.  The theme we're running with this year is 'Who will you make Peace with on Peace Day?' This Peace Day is designed to guide the seeker back to peace and equip with tools to help guide you back there when we lose our way. We must first find the peace within ourselves before it can radiate from us and touch the community surrounding us and this festival focuses on both the individual and the community.

Body Mind & Harmony Market

The Body Mind Harmony Market as part of Peace Day will be held on the Sims Esplanade at Yorkeys Knob from 9am – 4pm. It will include a variety of market stalls, including massage, reflexology, bowen therapy, natural health, and eco-friendly products. There will also be demonstrations and workshops held throughout the day. Submissions open now for entertainers and demonstrations as well. To help foster kindness in our community stall holders have donated gifts to our Random Acts of Kindness, which Kindness Angels will give out randomly throughout the day.

The Body, Mind & Harmony Market is open to individuals or businesses with interests in spiritual and alternative health, specialties in massage, health and holistic remedies, crystals, arts, music, performing or retail products relating to these areas. This year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever and we invite individuals and businesses to book a stall site early. Stall sites will be situated along the Sims Esplanade, Yorkeys Knob.

Global Mala Yoga for Peace

Following the lighting of the World Peace Flame we begin with The Global Mala Yoga for Peace, which is also a world-wide event, in which yoga communities around the world, form a ‘Mala around the Earth’ to support the International Day of Peace. This will include 108 rounds of the Sun Salutation as a demonstration of Peace in Action. There will be 6 Certified Yoga Teachers each leading 18 rounds of the Sun Salutation. It’s estimated that this will take approximately 2.5 hours to complete. Quite a workout! You’re welcome to bring a yoga mat and join in!
