Ideas for celebrating International Peace Day

The United Nations considers September 21 a global holiday: International Peace Day. Many meditation groups celebrate with large simultaneous meditation circles, a strategy that John Hagelin reports can reduce violence. Lynn McTaggart also offers new research supporting how our thoughts impact our environment and those we meet. Even if you are skeptical about the impact of thoughts on others, you probably agree that speech and listening can create peace or its opposite, so you might be more interested in the work of Marshall Rosenberg and other trainers in Nonviolent Communication or Compassionate Communication.

Thanks for all the peace you already make.
