Come and meditate with us on International Day of Peace - Sunday, Sept 21st at Eyes Wide Open.
At EYES WIDE OPEN, we are committed to world peace and we believe that World Peace Begins with You. When we conquer inner peace, our relationships are more likely to be harmonious; we will be more ready to accept others as they are; we will make our best effort to turn "bad conflict" into "good conflict." What better contribution could we make to global peace than to face the world from a peaceful place within?
The International Day of Peace, a.k.a. "Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date.
"In 1981, the United Nations General Assembly, by unanimous vote, adopted Resolution 36/67 establishing the International Day of Peace (IDP) which stated in part, “…to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways.” The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982 on the opening day of the General Assembly. In 2002 the UN General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent annual date for the International Day of Peace."
