Calling all spiritual activists!
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.
In addition to shifting our consciousness, we, at the Centers for Spiritual Living, also encourage everyone to consider involvement in certain peace actions in the world. Below are some we support:

On that day, multiple peace meditations will be presented on the CSL Facebook page. Our 24 hours of meditation offerings are titled “One World, One Love, One Peace”.

You are invited to participate in any of the meditations – or in multiples of them. Some CSL communities or groups are presenting individual events to commemorate the day.

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 12:00 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.
Many communities are participating with a community event. Those communities are listed at:
