Be The Peace at Art Park

How would you like to participate, right here in Yellow Springs, in one of the largest globally-synchronized meditation and prayer events in history?

On September 21, 2012, the 30th Annual International Day of Peace, hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals worldwide will join together as ONE for BeThePeace. BeThePeace will feature public meditation/prayer events in hundreds of cities worldwide, starting at 6pm in local time zones, and creating a profound planetary wave of peace.

As part of this global event, and in collaboration with the Yellow Springs Experience Wellness Fair Weekend, local meditation teachers Denise Runyon, Tom Malcolm and Lynda Terry, will host a BeThePeace silent meditation at the Art Park, 100 Corry St., on Friday, September 21st, from 6-7pm.

The group silent meditation is free and open to all, and you don’t need to have formal meditation training or experience. All you need is an open heart, a longing for peace in our world, and a willingness to sit peacefully in silence with others. You can join in for a few minutes or the entire hour. Seating will be on the benches in the Art Park or on the ground. Feel free to bring a cushion or pillow if you like, or a lightweight folding chair, and dress comfortably for the weather (forecast is for 30% chance of rain and temps in 70s).

BeThePeace also will host three Global Attunements for Peace during the day when everyone can connect via telecast at the same time: 12am, 12noon, and 12 midnight EDT, creating three deep planetary pulses of peace. And throughout the day, people will be able to connect virtually via a Global Care Room, in which people can ‘see’ each other as points of light on a spinning Google Earth map, providing a stunning visual image of the global field forming in real time before your eyes.

A guided meditation recording, created especially for the daylong event by Yellow Springs resident Lynda Terry and her son, musician Nathan Veshecco, will be featured as part of the Global Care Room experience.
