Silence for World Peace

The Moment of Peace, MedMob & Do As One Unite on March 10, 2012

A silent global phenomenon is occurring. On March 10th, tens of thousands of people, in over 300 cities around the world are joining together for an hour of silence to cultivate peace and harmony for humanity.  People from all backgrounds, ages and beliefs will join in.

The Moment of Peace, MedMob and Do As One, three uniquely uplifting organizations, have linked up to inspire people from around the world to unite.  Collectively, “Together As One” is their theme.  The message is simple; take a moment and appreciate silence in order to expand peace with each other and from within.

Participants in Jerusalem, Austin, Sydney, Paris, Mumbai, London, New York, Los Angeles, and many more are organizing public outdoor meditations in the heart of their cities to anchor peace and invoke a spirit of togetherness. It is set to be the biggest gathering of its kind in history.

“Some people are afraid to look at each other and smile these days. We aren’t as connected as we could be.” said Dean Crabb, founder of The Moment of Peace. “We are doing something about it and giving people a way to start truly living together.”

Technology has been the enabling factor that has empowered an explosion and collaboration of movements geared towards peace.  Jaime Collaco from Do As One noted, “We’re excited that we’ve aligned with transformative organizations such as The Moment of Peace and MedMob. As we celebrate The Moment of Peace together, we have the opportunity to connect in silence, in meditation and in synchronous breath thanks to technology.

“We are in a unique time in history and the Internet is enabling this unprecedented event to occur,” said Patrick Kronfli, co-founder of MedMob. “About 70 of us started MedMob in January, 2011 at the Texas State Capitol in Austin and now, one year later, the movement has spread to hundreds of cities around the world.”

The Moment of Peace is an annual global event for an hour of silence and meditation – it occurs again on Saturday, March 10th 2012.  There will be two waves of silence held throughout the day, one from Noon to 1PM and another from 8PM to 9PM in your own local time-zone.  Celebrations are set to kick off on March 9th with the King David Peace Drummers igniting a drumming circle for peace in the heart of Jerusalem.

The event is completely free and open to all people from all walks of life. Group events can be found by going to MedMob.org & TheMomentOfPeace.com, and you can synchronize your breath all day in the Universal Breathing Room on DoAsOne.org.

MedMob holds similar hourly flash mob meditation events every month around the world and offers people the ability to participate more regularly.  Do As One provides an online portal where people come together to meditate and breathe in sync as one during these events and around the clock everyday.
