7 Minutes for World Peace

Dear Peace-Loving Friends:

We invite you to join us for a small, short, quiet gathering to invoke World Peace. The core of this event will be a 7-minute silent meditation, where we will individually feel, invoke and spread Peace amongst ourselves and offer it to the world at large.

When: Monday July 8th, from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm
Where: Terry Fox Monument, St. John’s Port Authority building, 1 Water St.

The total event should be about 30 minutes long. The structure is like this:
12:30   Greet & welcome participants
12:35   Each participant reads aloud, a poem on peace, which we will provide
12:40   Explanation & a 7-minute silent meditation invoking world peace
12:50   Briefly discuss the philosophy of “Peace begins with me”
12:55   Individuals make a silent wish for inner peace while holding the peace torch
1:00     Departure

This event has been inspired by Sri Chinmoy, a peace-lover and sleeplessly self-giving server to the cause of World Harmony. It is also inspired by the United Nations International Day of Peace.
