I am LOVING all of the peace groups I’m finding lately! I am so excited to share interviews, information, links, videos and upcoming events! Check back often to get the latest updates. I’m planning to start a calendar with upcoming events, as well. Below are some of the things I am anxious to share with all of you:
From the ThriveMovement.com website, watch the incredibly REAL movie, Thrive. It is impeccably spoken, researched and presented, in my opinion. Interviews are great, it’s very informative and offers some really good solutions. To see the movie online for FREE, click below:
Another great program I have discovered is Summer of Peace 2015. Go to that website to hear many awesome interviews and see their huge calendar of upcoming events and various ways to make a difference in creating a worldwide peace at summerofpeace.net
Join thousands of others for World Peace weekend September 19-21. Hundreds of organizations are hosting marches, musical celebrations, & meditations around the world.
There will be a Global Synchronized Inner-Peace Broadcast at 5:00 pm PST / 12:00 Midnight GMT on September 19th hosted by BeThePeace. Then, on Sunday September 20th, there will be a wave of live events at 12:00 Noon in your time zone. We invite you to organize a meditation, prayer, or ceremony in your native tradition. Millions of us around the world will focus on creating a foundation of inner peace as the first step towards World Peace.
On Monday, September 21st, we invite you to take peace into the world. Forgive someone in your life, bring peace into your workplace, or organize a peace project. You choose how you want to create peace into the world.
Sign up to their mailing list and you will receive guidance and resources for organizing an event in your city or individual action steps you can take to create more peace in your life and on our planet.
Together, as one human family, we will accomplish peace on earth. It may take a generation but we now have the tools, the knowledge, and the will to make it happen. One step at a time. We will accomplish our goal!
Go to Unify.org for more great events and ideas! You can sign up to start an organization in your city or town if there is not one to join already. Watch the short video below, then please go to the website to sign up.
Coming together to meditate may not seem like likely to create a profound change in the world, but we believe that not only does it change the way we see the world, but that there is evidence that it can directly influence both events around us and at a distance.
Unify has been organizing globally synchronised meditations for two and a half years, starting with the much prophesized and speculated-about date of December 21, 2012, the Winter Solstice of that year. There are several meditation events that we organize, or participate in, every year, but the largest ones are timed with the four cardinal points of the year, the June and December Solstices and the March and September Equinoxes. At that time people gather together around the world and focus their prayers and meditations collectively as one. Or, as we say, we ‘Unify’!
Some people gather in physical events where hundreds of people meditate in public spaces, at festivals, or at other locations. A lot of people join in from around the world individually, or in small groups in their homes, gardens, or local parks. Through the power of social media and the internet, we organise across the planet and in dozens of countries and bioregions. The next one is going to be at Noon, Pacific Time on June 21 and for the first time we have more than 10,000 people committed to meditate at the same time together.
Why do we do this? Well, firstly, it’s fun. Meditation has many direct health benefits that have been repeatedly proven. It clears the mind, it reduces stress, it allows you to step out of the day-to-day runnings of the world and into the self-existing emptiness that is always there. Meditating can give us new perspectives, creates the room for new insights to come through, and relaxes both the mind and body into an integrated state of functioning. Joining together with other people to meditate reinforces the practice. It can make it easier to sit and just make time to breath, reflect, and be empty for a few moments.
We also Unify because we believe that it makes a difference to the collective consciousness of the planet. To understand how this works, you need to look at the research that has been done by organisations like Transcendental Meditation on the effects group meditation has on crime rates locally, or the research that the Global Coherence Initiative has done on positive impact of people engaging in meditation can have, not just on those participating, but on everyone around them. No matter what you believe, ‘Unifying’ is still fun, healthy, and may just raise your vibration as well as those of the people around you and the planet as a whole.
The Gaiafield Project is another great organization to check out. In collaboration with other leading organizations in the field, they convene regular public subtle activism programs intended to support greater peace, sustainability, and social justice in our world.
They are also supporters of the Summer of Peace project and also have many setting up groups to participate in the World Peace Weekend going on September 19th-21st.
Here is an audio from the Gaiafield Project Global Attunement for Peace from last year (click image below):
PeaceOneDay is another website involved in peace. View the short video below to learn more about PeaceOneDay:
Building peace one day at a time
Jeremy Gilley is an actor turned filmmaker, who founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.
Throughout the years, millions of people have been active on Peace Day in every country of the world, and hundreds of organisations have carried out life-saving activities in all areas. Through our own initiatives and collaborations with various parties, Peace One Day will set out to encourage organisations and individuals take specific actions to reduce violence around the theme: Who Will You Make Peace With?
There are so many wonderful groups out there encouraging and teaching peace. One other one I want to mention is The Shift Network. The Shift Network empowers a global movement of people who are creating an evolutionary shift of consciousness that in turn leads to a more enlightened society, one built on principles of peace, sustainability, health, and prosperity. They have lots of online articles and courses.
The Shift Network creates numerous events to empower you in personal transformation and collective change work, many of them for free. One of the many they offer is 8 Weeks to Shift from Ego to Essence.
The Shift from Ego to Essence offers you the keys to shifting from your egoic “local self” to your Essential Self – giving you lasting access to divine guidance and the ability to live with wisdom, confidence, creativity, purpose and joy.
If you’re like most people, you intend to always respond to the people, events and situations in your life with ease, grace and compassion.
But sometimes you get triggered. Someone really ticks you off or cuts you off in traffic. Your “to-do” list is beyond overwhelming. Or something unexpected happens in your life that sends you reeling.
So how do you consistently bring yourself back to center and live from what Barbara Marx Hubbard calls your Essential Self – that wise, loving, powerful and radiant part of you?
How can you live as your best, most highest self – even in the midst of stress or chaos – and make your greatest contribution toward positively shaping our future?
It starts with an Inner Shift.
And on this free 1-hour call with top evolutionary leader Barbara Marx Hubbard, and transformational meditation teacher Patricia Ellsberg, you’ll learn the keys to aligning your life with your True Essence, which when fully liberated becomes a powerful force for healing and transformation in our world.
Join Barbara and Patricia for this experiential hour where you can learn to:
- Heal and lift up your egoic self to a higher octave – so you are free to fully give your gifts to the Shift
- Replace overwhelm with ease and live in the flow of your life with greater confidence, creativity and purpose
- Release yourself from the pressures of everyday life and, instead, flood it with joy and peace
