To acknowledge International Day of Peace, a global meditate at 9 pm AEST tonight will create a 24-hour chain of meditations worldwide, with the purpose of joy, peace, and inner strength experienced as a collective.
According to organisers, The Heartfulness Institute, the free meditation for a Peaceful Planet, broadcasted worldwide in 28 languages on YouTube and Facebook, will have enormous healing energy that could change the world.
The Institute said last year’s event attracted over 30 million people worldwide, connecting them through two live events.
With the unrest and instability felt globally and the uncertainty created by COVID-19 and Climate Change, including social polarisation, the organisers believe the meditation will be an opportunity for everyone to find some calm within the storm and to revel in collective joy and peace, finding inner strength, serenity, and compassion.
“Over one billion people around the world are currently suffering from a mental condition, most of them with either anxiety or depression (WEF), and 75% of them remain untreated,” The Heartfulness Institute said.
According to the Institute, in August 2021, Lifeline recorded its highest number of daily calls in the organisation’s history.
“As Australians continue to endure lengthy lockdowns, support services deal with an influx of calls and people reaching out for mental health support services.”
“The true power of Peace Day will be felt as everyone comes together to meditate, creating a 24-hour chain of mediations around the world.”
