Africa Day

 The largest Peace Meditation for Africa, By Africa on Africa Day


I Meditate Africa Saturday 25th May 2013


Meditation is all about individual inner peace. But over 500 studies from more than 200 International Universities, including Princeton and Harvard, have proven that mass meditations can improve the quality of life for everyone. So what better way to celebrate Africa Day, than a mass meditation for peace for the African continent?


“Regular meditation, say of about 15 minutes a day before you turn in, can be fruitful…”   Nelson Mandela  – The Authorized Biography” by Anthony Sampson (pg 252).


Joaquim Chissano, the former President of Mozambique is referred to as the “meditating president”, who encouraged meditation to his army and civilians. According to then minister of defence, Tobias Dai, “the effect of mass meditation was overwhelming. Crime levels dropped, a drought was averted and economic growth soared.”  The Guardian UK Sep 22 2001.


It’s the first time all four corners of the continent will be united through a webcast meditation – led by world leader and Peace ambassador Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
