GlobeShift ( and BeThePeace ( have a common vision: Peace can be achieved in this world; the time to effect a change in world energy around violence is now, the existence of Peace is dependent on each individual human being, and one of the ways to achieve this is to bring energetic synchronicity into the world through meditation and prayer. GlobeShift joins the ranks of Gaiafield Project, Pathways to Peace, the Summer of Peace, the Institute of HeartMath, and MedMob as a collaborative organization on the BeThePeace project. On Friday, September 21st, GlobeShift and BeThePeace are hosting events in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the International Day of Peace.

“There is no one single way to access the common field that unites humanity and the Earth. The more attention and intention we can bring to this work, the greater the likelihood of a peace outcome,” says Limor Schafman, Founder of GlobeShift.

BeThePeace is designed collaboratively by the Gaiafield Project, Pathways to Peace, the Summer of Peace, the Institute of HeartMath, and MedMob. BeThePeace is aggregating organizations and people around the world for public prayer and meditation events in over 380 cities and virtual participation the Teleconference/Webcast and the Global Care Room.

BeThePeace is holding events at 3 times during September 21st – 12am, 12noon, and 12midnight EDT. These 90 minute sessions will include a view of all those joining on the Global Care Room (which is an online map of participants), guided meditation, verbal sharing of thoughts. “We invite people in the Washington, D.C. area to join with thousands worldwide in a unique Global Attunement for Peace to mark the opening and closeing of the Shiff Network’s histori Summer of Peace 2012,” says Myra Jackson, host of the BeThePeace D.C. event.

In Washington, D.C., BeThePeace will be held at 12noon at Luminous Warrior, 520 10th Street, NW, 2nd Floor. “We will link via web-conference and audio webcast to multiple hub-sites around the world at locations of spiritual and political significance in a profound expression of planetary spirituality and global subtle activism," says Jackson.

Global Om 108, created and inspired by GlobeShift, has a dream to inspire 108 Om chant gatherings to take place around the world at any given point in time. For September 21st, there are in-person and online gatherings scheduled for Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Virginia, West Virginia, Finland, and India. Each gathering follows its own plan with rolling (ongoing) Oms being a common theme among them. “We are very excited to collaborate with BeThePeace. By connecting our respective initiatives together, Global Om 108 instantly exceeds our vision of quantifiable quantum shift in energetics on this day of Peace.”

In Washington, D.C., Global Om 108 will be held at 6pm at the Lincoln Memorial Plaza steps. The event will include rolling Oms, silent meditation, singing bowls. sharing of thoughts and music performed by Wytold ( and Bryan Bowman. People are invited to bring candles, singing bowls and cushions.

“For decades people have been observing what is called the ‘Maharishi Effect,’ that 1% of an area’s population meditating and focusing on peaceful prayer can measurably reduce anger, violence and warfare taking place in that region. We’re hoping that Global Om 108 and BeThePeace will inspire millions of people to focus on being in peace, and thus affect the change we seek on September 21,” continues Limor.

Initiated by the United Nations in 1981, the International Day of Peace is “devoted to commemorating and strengtheningthe ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples,” according to the Peace Day website ( This year’s theme is “Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future.”    

“When I put myself in that moment and time when millions of people around the world are being in peace as they meditate and pray, I feel the earth adjust itself to a healthier alignment of self-sustainability. This is what we are seeking to create. And we hope people around the world will join us,” concludes Limor.
