Join our call from Assisi for Worldwide Meditation for Peace

On 1 December 2023 we came to Assisi, the birthplace of Saint Francis. We came on behalf of the World Upshift movement to visit the Ananda European Centre and appeal for a Worldwide Meditation for Peace. 

Saint Francis embodied the message of love and friendship for birds, for animals, for humanity, for all of  nature. The prayer of Saint Francis begins with the words : "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace."

Mevlana Rumi, who lived at the same time as Saint Francis, wrote: " Yesterday, I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today, I am wise so I am changing myself."

Paramahansa Yogananda taught: "Change yourself and you have played your part in changing the world."

The conflict and strife in the world today seem like a tinder box, waiting for a spark to engulf us all in flames.

The current imbalance in the relationship between earth and humanity needs to be corrected urgently.

We are three women from different parts of the world, ambassadors of the World Upshift movement. 

We ask you to share our message of goodwill.

We invite you to bring your presence to the Worldwide Meditation for Peace.

We call on you to raise the vibration of peace in your community.

Let us meditate together for peace in our hearts. 

We will not find peace in the world without it.

Lady Mohini Kent Noon, Maria Antinori and Justina Mutale
