Upgrade to ‘Z Class’ for Peace

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Cause it’s getting squishy squashy at the Monk on our celebratory dinner for International Day of Peace (21 September, 2011), the cookie boy has kindly offered us his wheels pictured below as an alternative eating space that will be parked outside the Monk.

This will particularly appeal to the more casual swinger hipster cool types that are looking for the experience of how this old hippie traveled the 3 K’s (Kuta, Kathmandu. Kabul) in the 60’s. But if you are straight edged and cashed up, that’s cool too!

As this is a once only offering for people looking for a more intimate occasion, it will also come at a premium price of $100 per person. Rest assured that absolutely all the proceeds go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Edgars Mission!

Bookings of 3-4 only on a first come first served basis.

Date and Time: Wednesday 21 September, 2011 at 6pm and 8.30pm

Dinner will be fully vegan and will include the following :

Three [3] dip combo/ Moroccan Pumpkin, Mexican Red Bean and Middle Eastern Hummus served with organic corn chips and raw vegetable crudités
Rasam [soup]
Feast Plate/ Sea Shepherd Pie, Mansoor Dal, Spiced Potatoes, Royal Rice [Sela], Lijjat Pappads, Silverbeet Kitchari and Chile Jam
Raw selection of mignardises including chocolates, cookies, biscotti and macaroons
Beautiful Chai Masala

Please book online through www.monkbd.com.au/wpd as a regular payment and then email marwin@monkbd.com.au to request an upgrade.

PS. Anyone that has already booked can also upgrade…

International Day of Peace for ‘All Beings’
21 September, 6pm and 8.30pm at Monk Bodhi Dharma

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

The old hippie and the crew are back to celebrate the International Day of Peace on Wednesday 21st September, 2011 at Monk Bodhi Dharma.

Michael Hewstone (ex Peace Kitchen) and the crew from the Monk will be holding a peace offering and celebratory dinner with absolutely all the proceeds going to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Edgars Mission! The animal kingdom is having a hard time at the moment, so we are coming together to celebrate peace amongst all beings!

Due to the success of the event last year and having to turn people away, we are happy to announce that we are holding two sessions (don’t tell the cookie boy!)

What is International Day of Peace?

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly.

International Day of Peace is also a Day of Ceasefire – personal or political. Take this opportunity to make peace in your own relationships as well as impact the larger conflicts of our time. Imagine what a whole Day of Ceasefire would mean to humankind.
