Over the past 4 decades, science-based peace initiatives around the world have demonstrated that a minimum threshold of individuals holding peaceful or coherent energies within a given geographical area can shift demographic statistics, including crime rates, hospital emergencies, traffic accidents, and even economic indicators.
Ottawa's version of a peace meditation initiative will be launched in 2018. Initial steps are being taken to collaborate with a variety of scientific, peace, and meditation professionals and the Institute of Heart Math. In collaboration with the 11th Ottawa Peace Festival, Daniel Mauro, friends and peace colleagues highlighted the core Peace Meditation Project details on September 22 at Saint Paul University.
The project is expected to take place over 3 distinct stages, culminating in a pilot study planned for the summer of 2018. Currently, we are in the process of creating a detailed project infrastructure which involves experimental participants, supporting resources, project personnel, and funding.
There are three possible funding models we have considered: Participant-based donations vs Community Fundraisers vs Canadian Patronage. We are actively recruiting heart centered meditation participants for this project. If you are open to participating over the long-term and are in a position to contribute a donation, kindly indicate that at the contact page. Also please visit the Initiatives Page where you fill find a donation button.
If you would like to support this project in any capacity, either as a volunteer, an admin staff, scientist, or meditation participant, please provide us with details in the contact form.
