Healing Meditation for Peace

Sunday, August 9th at 10:00 AM

Global Harmony Labyrinth, Como Park

Provided by Miracles for Peace

Event happens rain or shine.

Bring a chair, water, a mask, optional: a bell. 

If not wearing a mask, sit 6 feet apart from others - observe social distancing.

The meditation will begin at 10:00am, plan to arrive around 9:45am.

This will be a guided healing meditation with pauses of silence for

reflection and integration.  

It will first focus on releasing war trauma - we all carry traumas that we

have inherited from ancestors through our DNA, from our personal 

experiences and those we have received through Collective Consciousness.

There will then be a guided healing meditation for the Souls affected

by the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings. 

The Healing Meditation ends with a Bell ringing at 11:02 am - this is an international ringing of the bells for peace promoted by Sister Cities International.

You are welcome to stay and continue to meditate or to walk the labyrinth.

Directions to the Global Harmony Labyrinth:

From Hwy 94, Lexington exit, travel north to Estabrook, turn left;

From Hwy 36, Lexington exit, travel south to Estabrook, turn right;

then just before you reach the conservatory area, the road veers to the right and becomes Nason Place; turn into the parking lot to the right;  at the other end of the parking lot there is a roundabout; take the sidewalk from the roundabout past the lily pond and go left on the second sidewalk and the labyrinth is on your right.

~~~~

Elements of both the August 6th and August 8th events, including speeches and readings, will be pre-recorded, posted on Youtube (WAMM account), and linked on the Saint Paul – Nagasaki (https:/pages/www.facebook.com/groups/spnscc/) and WAMM Facebook  pages. This will allow those who are sheltering at home to enjoy the ceremonies.

 

SPNSCC has also been given a 15 minute slot on the HiroshimaNagasaki75 podcast titled “#StillHere: 75 Years of Shared Nuclear Legacy,” which will stream on August 6th and 9th. Our time slot will be on August 6 at 3 pm, and we will be sharing a recording of Caren Stelson reading from her new book “A Bowl Full of Peace.” The event page for this podcast can be found here: https://www.hiroshimanagasaki75.org/events

The Hiroshima Nagasaki Commemoration Committee offers these events to the community to encourage reflection on the past and hope for the future through action in the present.  It calls for the total abolition of nuclear weapons throughout the world as one measure of ensuring a just and lasting peace.

Partners include the Saint Paul – Nagasaki Sister City Committee,

Women Against Military Madness, Miracles for Peace, Peace Ribbon: Minnesota, Veterans for Peace Chapter 27

"I refuse to accept the view

that mankind is so tragically bound 

to the starless midnight of racism and war, 

that the bright daybreak of peace & brotherhood 

can never become a reality... 

 

I believe

that unarmed truth and unconditional love 

will have the final word."
