BKs Conduct a Youth Retreat At a Lutheran Church in Peru

13 May 2022

Peru (South America): The BKs in Perú were invited by the Lutheran church to guide a youth retreat at the church for 25 young leaders who are future church pastors.

Participants had the opportunity to attend meditation practices, group conversations, an auto reflection and an auto evaluation on how they live the value of peace in their own lives.

They also had workshops designed to enable them to see themselves as peace keepers for their community and the world they live in.

The retreat had many emotional moments of spirituality and acknowledgement of the self as beings of peace in a chaotic and violent world. BK Nicola helped them to develop skills for becoming messengers of peace. At the end of the retreat in their final meditation practice, they wrote a letter to God.

 

 

 

News from Costa Rica

5 April 2022

Dear sweet and powerful family, Greetings of love from Costa Rica

We are sharing some news of what Baba is doing in this land: 

1. Meditation and Self-care for the staff of the National Institution for Children's Protection: since the beginning of the pandemic, we have developed a 4-hour workshop on Meditation, Self-care and Pause for Peace, which we have given in stages to the staff, which includes professionals in psychology, social work and social promotion. More than 2,000 thousand employees have been trained and we still continue to do it digitally. 

2. "What you do inspires" campaign: During the year 2021 a group of bks, based on the 7 billion acts of kindness campaign, created this version that includes some new elements. The National Association of Educators (there are more than 30,000 people), the Pension Board of the National Teachers' Association (they are all university and school and college teachers), the Radios of the University of Costa Rica, join the campaign, and a TV program called More than news, will be the ambassador of the campaign sharing inspiring content every week for people to join and share.

        The campaign has cards with content that help people create awareness of how to act during the day, as well as a workshop that will be given in these institutions, and a song contest where the campaign song will be chosen. In addition, it has the support of "influencers" in the country, such as Mario Chacón, who is a well-known actor in the country. There is more information in Spanish at the following link:

  Lo que hacés inspira | Voz de Paz 

 The campaign is going to be inaugurated in April, and we will have the participation of brother Ram Prakash, who is in India right now. The entire campaign is going to last 6 months, and we will finish with a special program on the International Day of Peace.

We have been meditating on Sundays in a park in the capital of the country, inspiring everyone to send peace to countries in war. Thanks to this, a television report was made that came out last week on the most watched channel in the country, here it is (it was called "in Costa Rica we have a university for the soul"): https://www.teletica.com/masqn/costa-rica-cuenta-con-una-universidad-gratuita-para-el-alma_308541 

Accepting of your loving spiritual support and good wishes,

Marianne and Costarican family
