Dear Leaders and Partners for Peace:
Being a part of the global meditation movement is truly an honor. At UNIFY, we are privileged to be able to interact daily with leaders, organizers and meditators from all corners of the globe, from Serbia to New Zealand, Mongolia to Mexico that are sharing how Peace is being expressed in their regions.
Every day, we hear from the people who are stepping up to “Be The Change” they wish to see in the world. They are signing up to join millions of others around the world to participate in World Peace Weekend events in their communities.
Every day, the world starts to feel more connected and committed to peace. And soon, we will be able to see that connection and commitment too. We are excited to announce the launch of the 2015 UNIFY Global Peace Map!
The UNIFY Global Peace Map is the virtual reflection of our intimate interconnection. We are One Human Family and this is a Global Movement. You, and organizers like you from around the world, can now upload the details of your World Peace Weekend event and we will share it far and wide!
This map not only allows you to find World Peace Weekend events in your region; it also demonstrates how Inner Peace in communities around the world is creating a Global Unified field of Peace, the seeds of World Peace.
Each event on the map represents an organizer who is committed to creating peace and a community of meditators and peacemakers that are unifying for the cause.
Last year, we had 1170 events registered on the map. This year, support us to register even more!
Be inspired and create your own event. Please follow these four steps to add an event to the UNIFY Map:
- Go to our UNIFY website (www.unify.org)
- Click “Create Event” on the Map
- Input your information
- Breathe and smile
It’s that simple!
Let the whole world know about your World Peace Weekend event and let us all see how connected we are this year. Upload your event today! Virtual events are also welcome to be posted on the map
You are a Leader for Peace.
Your participation and contribution makes a difference for us all.
Thank you for all your heart work,
Why do we Unify? The purpose of synchronized meditation.
Coming together to meditate may not seem like likely to create a profound change in the world, but we believe that not only does it change the way we see the world, but that there is evidence that it can directly influence both events around us and at a distance.
Unify has been organising globally synchronised meditations for two and a half years, starting with the much prophesized and speculated-about date of December 21, 2012, the Winter Solstice of that year. There are several meditation events that we organise, or participate in, every year, but the largest ones are timed with the four cardinal points of the year, the June and December Solstices and the March and September Equinoxes. At that time people gather together around the world and focus their prayers and meditations collectively as one. Or, as we say, we ‘Unify’!
Some people gather in physical events where hundreds of people meditate in public spaces, at festivals, or at other locations. A lot of people join in from around the world individually, or in small groups in their homes, gardens, or local parks. Through the power of social media and the internet, we organise across the planet and in dozens of countries and bioregions. The next one is going to be at Noon, Pacific Time on June 21 and for the first time we have more than 10,000 people committed to meditate at the same time together.
Why do we do this? Well, firstly, it’s fun. Meditation has many direct health benefits that have been repeatedly proven. It clears the mind, it reduces stress, it allows you to step out of the day-to-day runnings of the world and into the self-existing emptiness that is always there. Meditating can give us new perspectives, creates the room for new insights to come through, and relaxes both the mind and body into an integrated state of functioning. Joining together with other people to meditate reinforces the practice. It can make it easier to sit and just make time to breath, reflect, and be empty for a few moments.
The Health benefits of Meditation:
We also Unify because we believe that it makes a difference to the collective consciousness of the planet. To understand how this works, you need to look at the research that has been done by organisations like Transcendental Meditation on the effects group meditation has on crime rates locally, or the research that the Global Coherence Initiative has done on positive impact of people engaging in meditation can have, not just on those participating, but on everyone around them. No matter what you believe, ‘Unifying’ is still fun, healthy, and may just raise your vibration as well as those of the people around you and the planet as a whole.
