The Circle of Peace is an exciting new, inclusive and open-minded group. This group is for anyone who wants to live more peacefully within themselves and with others. The gathering begins with a brief (less than 10 minutes) lesson from one of the world's great wisdom traditions including Buddhism, Taoism, Native American Spirituality, Unity/Christianity, Sufism, Feminist Spirituality, and others. The lesson will be followed by a period of sharing on the topic, and a stress-relieving guided meditation.

The Circle of Peace begins March 30, and meets every Thursday from 5:45 to 6:45 PM at Unity of St Petersburg, 6168 1st Avenue North in St Pete.

Foreign Letters (2012) 
Directed by Ela Thier 
A bittersweet coming-of-age film, Foreign Letters is itself a love letter to the unshakeable bond between friends. Set in the pre-email era of the 1980s, young Ellie, newly arrived to the US from Israel, anxiously waits for letters from her best friend back home. Suffering from homesickness, language difficulties and rejection at school, life brightens when she meets Thuy, a Vietnamese refugee her age. As the two bond and become inseparable, they eventually hurt each other, and Ellie must find a way to restore their trust. Based on director Ela Thier's personal immigration experience, Foreign Letters is a film about poverty, prejudice, shame, and the healing power of friendship.  Click here to see trailer
