On Saturday, March 22nd, 2014, 7th and 8th grade Serve 2 Unite Peacemakers from Westside Academy II in Milwaukee, WI spent the day at the Chicago Shambhala Center learning mindfulness and meditation techniques from Acharyas Arawana Hayashi and Gaylon Ferguson, and The Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Our students were also very excited to meet people from Ceasefire Chicago and learned a lot to empower them as Peacemakers.

In this video, S2U Peacemakers Damani and Charlez reflect on what they’ve taught and learned, and what it would mean to have a regular meditation practice at home and at school.
