“We call upon each individual to stand united, responding to the need for peace.”
In 1993, a group of 4,000 people meditated in a crime-ridden Washington, D.C., effectively lowering the crime rate over 23% in just a few months’ time. What would happen if millions of people around the globe united in a similar endeavor? The world is ready for this quantum shift.
Since 2003, people around the world have joined together in mind and heart with those gathered in the World’s Peace Dome to ring in the New Year with the “Universal Peace Covenant” during the Universal Hour of Peace.
The Universal Hour of Peace is measured locally from 11:30 pm December 3lst through 12:30 am January 1st. We encourage you to initiate the new year with peace-filled intent. Refraining from any harmful thought and activity, some meditate in solitude while others join with family and friends in harmonious reflection. However you choose to welcome in the new year, please include reciting the Universal Peace Covenant at midnight. Students and faculty at the College of Metaphysics as they participate in the 16th annual ONE VOICE vigil.
Want to rest your mind in Peace for a longer period of time. We invite you to join us in a Peace Vigil by fostering a personal vision for 20 hours and 16 minutes of meditation. School of Metaphysics branches will be holding space in 16 cities across the U.S.A for people to gather and meditate. Please contact the branch nearest you for local celebrations. Create an opportunity for peace to live and breathe in 2016 by joining us beginning at 3:45 a.m. (CST) on Wednesday, December 31 in an ongoing meditation that will last through 12:00 midnight.
Whether you’ve practiced for years or never meditated, add your light for as long as you desire. Every second of meditation counts, so contact your local School of Metaphysics branch for details regarding opportunities and venue location, or gather with family and friends wherever you are.
