The Work

The Heart of Peace Initiative, comprised of members from all over the world, is a subcommittee of the Global Services Committee and is also dedicated to carrying the message of Science of Mind through peace to our international communities. In addition to providing Peace meditations every week on the CSL Facebook page, they also sponsor yearly events like day-long meditations supporting the International Day of Peace and the New Year’s Eve morning meditation for World Peace.

Can we, together, create a more peaceful and loving planet? The vision, the dream of the Heart of Peace program is that all live together in harmony, peace and cooperation.

Peace begins with you. Your ‘inner’ world is reflected in the ‘outer’ world. In order to move the realization of Peace forward, in our culture and around the world, activists must create, speak and pray the consciousness of Peace. We cannot use any current realities to hold us back. We are creating something new, something that perhaps has never existed before.

“We must think peace if we wish to express peace. The mind that is always confused and distraught is not at peace; the mind that is continuously upset and agitated by the little, petty things of life is not at peace; it is at war with itself. It is only when the individual mind ceases combating itself that it will stop combating others.” ~ Ernest Holmes

In addition to shifting our consciousness, Centers for Spiritual Living encourages everyone to consider involvement in certain peace actions in the world. Below are some we support:

World Healing Peace Meditation

World Healing Peace Meditation (December 31)

More than 500 million people from an array of faith traditions and philosophies, across seven continents, meditate simultaneously each year on December 31, at 12 p.m. UTC/GMT. The gatherings begin at precisely the same moment all around the world in all the many languages, to pray in the ways of their own traditions. We each affirm Peace and commit to do our part to heal the world. It is truly an amazing experience to sense the consciousness and the presence of hundreds of millions of people sharing the hour! Centers for Spiritual Living’s Global Heart of Peace initiative participates in this event every year as we contribute our consciousness to healing the world and establishing sustainable peace.

John Randolph Price and Jan Price established World Healing Day, a global mind-link for peace involving millions of people that began on December 31, 1986 — with the Los Angeles Times reporting up to 400 million participants. The event has continued on the same date and time each year. The purpose of this mind-link was to bring human consciousness to the tipping point — that level of awareness of our oneness that would ensure peace and eliminate suffering, conflict, and inequity.
