Chant for Peace and Vegan Potluck


The KW Vegan Society and Lotus Meditation invite you to celebrate the International Days of Peace and Non Violence at our annual Chant for Peace and Vegan Potluck.

Kirtan (chanting) meditation is the process of hearing and singing beautiful sacred sound vibrations known as mantras. These mantras enable us to feel peace and love in our hearts. This peace and love naturally overflows in our relationships with all living entities….animals, mother earth and all of humanity.

Please bring a vegan dish to share at the end of the kirtan session (please ensure your meal does not contain any meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, or honey), serving utensil, and note the ingredients beside the dish for those with sensitivities. If you are really not sure what to bring as this is a new way of eating for you, just come! You can get some wonderful tasty ideas for next time.

This is a free event and open to all.

• Friday September 22 – 6:30pm
