Dallas will be giving an experience of Reasoning with Peace. The plan is to have a dinner open to students and their families only that evening around 6:30 PM.
After this, at about 8:00 PM we will offer open to the public a three-fold experience leading people to
(1) reflect upon their experiences, accomplishments, and states of consciousness in 2004 (memory) separating, identifying, and admiting where they have been this past year. Then Natalie will lead them through
(2) a guided prayer and meditation experience (9:00 PM tentatively) for about an hour to be in the present moment (attention) with themselves and the inner stimulation resulting from referencing their memory; the focus of the prayer will be toward their highest ideals and who they desire to be. Next, we will lead a
(3) guided visualization experience (imagination) to identify their ideals, set some measurable goals to accomplish in 2005, and find a motivating purpose for the necessary and related acitivity. Details regarding which tools specifically that we will be using to accomplish this will be fleshed out soon.
The idea for the 11:30-12:30 Universal Hour of Peace is to have 5-10 groups already celebrating peace on New Years to join with us in reading the Peace Covenant at midnight or some other time during their celebration if midnight doesn?t work for them or whatever. We will be leaving the 11:30-12:30 hour flexible to likewise read any prayers for peace that these fellow peace bearers are reading at their celebrations into what we do as we are asking them to do the same with the Peace Covenant. Of course, we will read the Universal Peace Covenant at midnight. The idea is to hold the Universal Hour of Peace at a location other than the School, so as to involve more people. The idea right now is downtown, outside of Thanksgiving Square amidst the skyscrapers. This will be a quiet enough spot away from the noise and traffic of the West End to give space for the sacredness of the Covenant’s reading.
