Published 10:45 am Friday, February 25, 2011

The public is invited to observe World Day of Prayer Friday, March 4 from 7 – 8 p.m. at Adawehi Institute’s Sharing Night.

Each month, students and friends at Adawehi come together to converse with each other and enjoy desserts and beverages on first Fridays. The First Friday event has come to be known as Sharing Night. In March, the evening will include an observance of World Day of Prayer, which falls on the first Friday of March, and is observed by groups in over 170 countries.

The evening will allow time to relax with friends and to bring a quiet awareness of prayer and an attitude of openness. Everyone is invited to share their perceptions and insight with others, thereby expanding appreciation for the value of personal and world prayer.

Jackie Woods, one of the hosts for the evening, is the founder and director of Adawehi Institute and Healing Center, an author and personal growth teacher. A social innovator, Woods created an intentional community 13 years ago in Columbus, where people study and practice how to live in peace together and in the world. The campus is open to the public.

Adawehi Institute is located off Fox Mountain Road at 93 Adawehi Lane in Columbus and can be reached at 828-894-5260 or through www.adawehi.com.
