“Peace in the world begins with the seed of peace within ourselves. Human beings find many ways to do this. The way of haiku is simply to slow down and pause this very moment, to notice what is right in front of us. Through this one gesture, of relaxing our mind, we are planting seeds of peace in ourselves and in the world around us.”
-Patricia Donegan

Patricia, author of Haiku Mind: 108 Poems to Cultivate Awareness & Open Your Heart will be speaking on peace and haiku at the conference.
