This Saturday, Nov. 25th this joint effort is aiming to reach 100,000 participants worldwide who will meditate for peace: “Peace in our hearts & peace for the planet.”

1Million Meditators  will host an interactive online Q&A with Nuclear Age Peace Foundation Director Rick Wayman on Tuesday November 21st at 3pm EST on the 1Million Meditators Facebook page.

Nuclear Age Peace Foundation members and conscious individuals everywhere are invited to join 1Million Meditators on November 25th, 2017 for a Global Peace Meditation taking place in various cities around the globe.
