Cities are in turmoil.
Please meditate for August 15-22, 2020 Peace Project

Hi Everyone,

When I started the non-profit NUMINOUS, years ago, I knew I wanted to use the platform to train meditators to lead group meditations for peace at the city level.  I have always felt that as a society, we could do better for our children.

Quite honestly, it has been a hard sell.

If it wasn’t that I witnessed the power of this work in my own life and the lives of GPCP volunteers. I would not have developed the severe grit needed to stay with the mission.

Most people are so overwhelmed with their personal lives, taking time out to send intentions for peace to a city feels inconsequential. I certainly understand.

However, how do you feel about our results after leaving peace in the hands of others?  Are you satisfied? 

Although some beautiful social movements are emerging, violence is simultaneously emerging as well.

COVID-19 has added to the fury. As we pull-in and isolate, we distrust others more, and cycles of social incivility continue to worsen.

Do you sense that subtle activism, including group meditations for peace with scientific documentation, is a large rock we have not looked under?

I dream of inspiring a legion of meditators who wake up each day willing to lift the world from their living room.

Professor of Statistics and Mathematics at the State University of New York at Albany, Dr. Reinhold, and myself are motivated to provide you the documentation of your efforts.

As you send intentions for peace to Albany, we will analyze the social indicators (arrests, crimes, accidents, violence, etc) to determine how much of an impact our intentions for peace have made.

Let’s demonstrate that a group of ordinary citizens can override destructive social structures with infinite wisdom that can only be accessed by integrating the needs of the whole.

At the Global Peaceful Cities Project, we learn how to work with this infinite wisdom.  We strive to be our brothers and sisters keepers.  We strive to take a stand for those who can not stand for themselves.

Please consider making a more significant commitment to this work.

Cities are in crisis all over the world.  We can no longer leave our peace in the hands of others.

This work empowers ALL of us. 

Please commit to meditating from the privacy of your own home, August 15-22, 2020.  Meditations, inspired by SNUG 518 anti-violence workers who risk their lives protect ing others.  They would greatly appreciate your support.

Let’s lift those who risk their lives to lift others.

More to come in the next 9 days.

We need help gathering the meditators.  Please share with as many people as possible.

Thanks for being on the journey with us.

External Peace Begins Inside Hearts…

which is why we start there.

External Peace literally starts within internally coherent nervous systems.

Trying to inspire peace anywhere else than in individual human hearts is a long way around. Participate in meditations for the Albany Peace Project and learn how to move your nervous system into satisfying coherence.
You may have never known you can feel that good!
