Wake Up for Peace – celebrating UN International Day of Peace 2016


On the morning of 21st September, the Melbourne community and it’s leaders will come together to wake up for peace and proactively support the UN International Day of Peace, along with millions around the world.

​You are invited to join this event and create silent, powerful intentions of peace and goodwill – on one day, for one purpose – and as one community at Deakin Edge, Federation Square, 7.45-8.30am.

Wake Up for Peace – celebrating UN International Day of Peace 2016

This simple but significant meditation event will be led by a team of 21 special guest meditators from across Australia; from teachers to practitioners; academics to business people; artists to sports individuals; and faith to non-faith representatives. As long-term practitioners of meditation, they will ​each light a candle for peace and ​hold a powerful and peaceful half-hour meditation on stage, guided with gentle commentary, music and silence.

The meditation will be facilitated by ABC meditation artist Carmen Warrington along with musicians Michael Johnson (harp), David Jones (Tibetan bowls/percussion), Megan Kenny (keyboard).

Closing comments will be provided by Lord Mayor, Robert Doyle and Matt Jones (General Manager, Program & Events, Federation Square).

We invite you as well as your family, friends and colleagues to join us for this significant event. We also invite you to share this event.
