International InterPlay leader and storyteller Masankho K. Banda will visit Juneau for two events. The first is an afternoon workshop titled "Cultures of Peace with InterPlay" from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, at Aldersgate United Methodist Church. The second is to preach and lead music on the themes of peace and justice at Aldersgate's 11 a.m. worship service.
Banda is a healer, performing artist, InterPlay leader and peace-builder originally from Malawi, Central Africa, now living in Oakland, Calif. From the time he could walk, everything about his life has groomed him to become the peace-builder he is today.
"Banda brings a gentleness and passion to his work that puts people at ease and allows them to access their deepest healing," said Aldersgate pastor Judy Shook.
In 2001, he was awarded the Dahli Lama's Unsung Hero of Compassion award for his peace and diversity work. In addition to being a certified InterPlay leader, Banda has worked to build peace for the past 15 years around the world.
InterPlay is an active creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body, and get body, mind, heart and spirit working together again.
The suggested donation is $20, although no one will be turned away. For more information and to register, contact Judy Shook at 523-2914 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
