World Peace Meditation is 10th annual event
On Sunday, Dec. 31, from 3-5 a.m., Seattle area residents are invited to participate in the World Peace Meditation at Seattle Unity Church, located at 8th and John in downtown Seattle behind Denny Park.
This will be the tenth year that people, regardless of beliefs, religious or political orientation, or ethnic origin, have come together with the common goal of attaining world peace.
The World Peace Meditation, also known as World Healing Day, was started by John Randolph Price and outlined in his book The Planetary Commission.
The goal is to eventually have everyone on the planet participating until the world enjoys peace, organizers said.
Although people can participate in their homes alone or with family, there will be a gathering of people at Seattle Unity Church for those who want to participate in this event with others.
The doors will open at 2:30 a.m. with musical performances from 3-3:55 a.m. The silent meditation will begin at 4 a.m. and end at 5 a.m.
The event is open to the public and free, although people are asked to bring a nonperishable food item to benefit Northwest Harvest (no rice or beans, please).
