"Peace Generator" Instructions

24-Hour World Healing Peace Circle — monthly, usually 6:00 pm Friday to 6:00 pm Saturday

In the Greeting Area

You can hang up your coat and remove shoes if desired. Partake of whatever refreshments you find. Please keep your voice down so as not to disturb those in prayer/meditation.

"Wall of Miracles"

There is a flip-chart where you may write down one or more intentions, prayers, visions/wishes that you will be holding in your heart and offering to the world (silently) during the circle/vigil. I call this the "wall of miracles." Also feel free to write down any wonderful things you've observed or heard of happening recently in the world.

Donation Jar:

These events are Free. They are not fund-raisers. The donation jar is provided for anyone who wishes to help cover the expenses, such as copying, postage, and meeting room donation. Anything donated beyond expenses will be given to an appropriate charity (suggestions welcome).

Please turn off any cell phones, pagers before entering the meeting room.

In the "Peace Generator" Room

Please enter quietly. Respect the loving space and spiritual connections that others are creating.

Suggestion: Look around the room and silently acknowledge/thank any others that are there.

If you have some spiritually significant object, you may put it on the table in the center of the room with the globe and candle.


Quietly find a seat in a chair or on the floor. A few cushions are provided (bring your own if you like). Walking meditation, or other slow movement, putting hands on the globe, etc., are all options if done in silence. Feel free to go outdoors for less quiet expression.


There will be a single chime once every half hour to help you keep track of the time, so you don't need to keep checking your watch if the time matters to you.

Leaving the Meeting Room

Please leave quietly, and remember to pick up anything you brought in with you. Suggestion: Again, look around the room and silently acknowledge/thank any others that are there.

Based on your experience with the circle, please fill out one of the feedback forms that will be there to offer any suggestions or to volunteer to help with similar future events.

Closing (6:00pm Saturday)

At 6:00pm we will have a brief closing ceremony to express thanks to all who participated and to all around the world who are open to receiving the loving/healing intentions that were generated.

A Few Suggestions -- in case you need ideas

(meditations & prayers, not in any order)

  1. Get the idea of sitting at the side of a loved one in critical condition, holding his or her hand, doing all you can to silently let them know how much you love them and want them to live. Now think of some person or animal that you know or have heard of in the world that you can get that sort of feeling for. Then think of another such person and send them love. Then try it with a whole family, a village, a nation, a continent, the world.
  2. Breath (air) connects us all. The molecules of nitrogen, oxygen, etc. in the air you exhale make their way around the world, carried by the wind, connecting intimately with other people, plants, animals, and even getting dissolved in the oceans where fish will "breathe" them. So while those molecules are in your lungs let them take on a vibration of love and healing, and then share that with the world as you exhale. You might even start noticing that the air you breathe in during the circle is starting to have more of these qualities.
  3. Breathing in, the pain of a mother who can do nothing for her child. Breathing out, Peace. Breathing in, the refugees, hungry, cold, the light going out in the child's eyes. Breathing out, Love.
  4. Dear God, we come together, different perspectives, different politics, different cultures, to ask that You heal our country and our world, Show us to each other as You would have us see each other. Show us the world as you would have us see the world. Teach and inspire all of us. Use us on Your behalf. Amen.
  5. Father-Mother God, please forgive this world for the racism, past and present, which so hides Your light. Please show us all how to create new societies where we can truly live as loving brothers and sisters.
  6. May there be peace on earth.
    May the hearts of all people be open to themselves and to each other.
    May all people awaken to the light of their own true nature.
    May all creation be blessed and be a blessing to All That Is.
