Tomorrow is the “International Day of Peace”, as observed by the General Assembly of the United Nations. To celebrate this beautiful event, a global synchronous meditation is being held between 3pm and 3.20pm (BST), through the “World Peace Meditation” mobile app. The guided meditation will be lead by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

I am reminded of the ‘butterfly effect’- the idea is that a single and seemingly fleeting occurrence, such as the flap of a butterfly’s wings, can change the course of the universe forever, for instance, through a tornado two continents away. This metaphor is relevant, for that simple act of individuals meditating together for just 20 minutes, could set a movement in motion; a whirlwind of stillness, positivity and peace which spreads through the entire planet.

So, I very much look forward to meditating with you at 3pm tomorrow. Simply download the “World Peace Meditation” app from the Google Play or Apple App Stores. The app costs £0.69 and this money will be donated to the International Association for Human Values (IAHV).
