Play For Peace
The Body Heals With Play, The Mind Heals With Laughter, and The Spirit Heals With Joy – Buddhist Proverb.
Bring a toy, musical instrument, or anything that symbolizes play, laughter, and joy.
PLAY 4 PEACE
Let’s share the light of healing
Karmilla Pillay-Siokos was born in an Indian Township in apartheid South Africa and now lives on a Greek island, working as a freelance writer.
She spent decades learning to soften the passion to fight against injustice with the empathy to love the people on all sides of any conflict. The secret to maintaining this balance is to look past our differences to find the divinity in all of existence.
Karmilla and her husband, Costa Siokos registered a non-profit organization called S.O.U.L (Society Of Universal Love) while home-schooling their children, engaging with alternate education communities, and working with survivors of sexual violence in Johannesburg, South Africa. The global lockdowns in 2019 proved that the world was not ready to receive their message. They moved to Greece in January 2021. The island life provided the perfect cocoon for Karmilla to reassess her purpose.
WUW 2023 marked her return to active duty in supporting the emergence of a humanity at peace with ourselves. Her conversations in Peace Week offer tools to move beyond trauma and healing to create a daily practice of gratitude and joy.
