Join over 20 African countries in a global Peace Initiative for Africa on 23 May 2015
“I Meditate Africa” is a campaign promoting peace across Africa, encouraging the use of meditation as part of mainstream peace building. Over 500 studies from more than 200 International Universities, including Princeton and Harvard, have scientifically proven that meditations can improve the quality of life for everyone. At a time where there is such violence, misunderstanding, & lack of human values in our country…lets do something positive, lets come together in peace, lets unite people on a deeper level through the power of collective consciousness.
Joaquim Chissano, the former President of Mozambique is referred to as the “meditating president”, who encouraged meditation to his army and civilians, he credits meditation as being one of the contributing factors for peace & prosperity in his country.The father of our nation, Nelson Mandela said- “Regular meditation, say of about 15 minutes a day before you turn in, can be fruitful…”The Authorized Biography” by Anthony Sampson (pg. 252)
Under I Meditate Africa, On Africa’s 50th Anniversary of unification in 2013, an estimated 10 000 people from 23 African countries, 30 African cities and 54 International countries were led into the largest peace meditation for Africa, with noted humanitarian Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Participating countries were: Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Cameroon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania, Tunisia, Nigeria, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Namibia, Mauritius, Morocco, DRC, Zambia, Ethiopia, Togo, Sudan & South Africa
In 2014 again, during Africa Month, 100 000 people across 23 African countries meditated for peace for Africa. A resounding sign of people wanting to do something positive for our continent.
