Join the World - International Day of Peace with Joan Steffend & Friends 
peace in, peace out  
At The Marsh of Minnetonka
Friday, September 21st, 2012
Special events planned all day for members and guests
Community Family Event  6:00-7:30 p.m. 

It’s easy to look at the world today and see only chaos. We get that.  But on September 21st, at The Marsh, we are choosing to see the peace in ourselves and offer it to others.

Ahhhhhh. Feels good, doesn’t it?

If it’s only an experiment? No harm. If we can find lasting, positive, peaceful change? October and the rest of your life will feel that much better.

We’re calling it “peace in, peace out.”

What will it look like?

Good question.

Starting in September, watch for signs – a button here, a sign up list there, a currency of kindness permeating The Marsh.

It’s all leading to the International Day of Peace, which is September 21, 2012. The United Nations declared it so years ago, but this year hundreds, maybe thousands, of events are taking place all over the world to set the intention for a more peaceful world. That day, The Marsh is connecting to all those sites and all those people through you. Imagine what we can create!

we will have all kinds of opportunities for you to express peace to yourself and the world with community fitness classes, silent breakfast, interactive seminars (Take a look below for more specific information about this!) and a peace event, open to the community, that evening.

We envision a night for all ages, going deep and laughing out loud! Become your own superhero (cape and all), drum, sing, dance, be surprised, meet your community, set your intentions and walk the luminaria-lined infinity path in our backyard. A moment of silence will bring us together with the world and send you on your way with a lot to think and feel.

Oh, and what's a peacful day without a good book?  This is  your very first chance to get your own copy of Joan's new book, peace in peace out.  The official launch is in November but we couldn't pass up this opportunity to share a little peace with you on this very special day.

The Marsh is located at 15000 Minnetonka Blvd. Minnetonka, Minnesota, 55345.

For more information please call The Marsh at 952-935-2202 or Sheila at TRISTAN at 763-545-1383.

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

8:00-10:00 a.m. (Stay tuned for the exact time of Warren’s segment)

We invite you to watch KARE 11 Saturday when Warren shares about his new release, Dear Me.

Here is what Jeffrey Zaslow is saying about Warren’s new release:

The lovely book in your hands is a time machine
of sorts. Through Warren Hanson’s elegant words
and his wonderfully creative approach to issues of the
heart, you will be transported, at least in your mind,
to meet yourself at several spots on the timeline of your
life. You’ll reflect on the younger person you were, on
the older person you will one day be, and on the ways
in which memories can combine with visions of the
unknown to impact the person you are today.

The letters that follow are, in some ways, very
simple. Still, it’s hard not to be emotional reading
them. All of us have our younger selves – and our
older selves, too – deep inside of us. What a gift it
would be to have a conversation with the person we
were and the person we will become. In these pages,
Warren Hanson has given us that gift.
            
Jeffrey Zaslow, Coauthor of The Last Lecture
