Why do we meditate?
Outside Peace Centers International, people will tell you all kinds of reasons why
- Because It’s Good for My Body - it reduces
stress hormones, increases relaxation, lowers blood pressure, etc. Not bad!
- Because It’s Good for My Relationships. I've
become less judgmental, more compassionate, less reactionary. High five!
- Because it calms me down - it quiets the
internal chatter of my mind, reduces anxiety, and I even "bliss out" sometimes. Two thumbs up!
This is all wonderful. But these are not the reasons Peace Centers International wants you to
meditate. . .
We want you to meditate together with others to Amplify Peace Everywhere! We want you to uplevel your meditation
practice to make a difference in the world. We want you to radiate Peace from deep within and teach
others to do the same thing. We want you to
teach others to move beyond a
self-centered feel-good meditation practice and make the world a better
place for all.

Why do we teach others to meditate? Why is it so important to come together in collective
meditation as part of the program?
Because it makes an impact on the community and surrounding environment! Numerous studies by quantum scientists and
others have shown that when people come together with a common intention, changes occur in the surrounding
environment that are reflective of the intention. These studies support our core tenet that with proper training
and support, a consciousness and energy of Peace Creates More Peace.
A new form of activism is being born, an activism of the "still small voice." The New Activism is in the business
of great and powerful change through inspired action. This is not the Peace Movement of yore - the days
of pressuring, protesting, riots, and blame games. It is the Peace Movement of Now and it is pushing
from the inside out within each one who will heed its call to become and Instrument of Peace, a Peace
What is a Peace Donor?
At Peace Centers International, Inc., we call ourselves Peace Donors, (a term we have service marked) as opposed to
Peace Ambassadors, or Peace Keepers, because just as blood donors give something of themselves they continually
regenerate, we give intentionally of our Peace, a consciousness and energy we continually radiate. Ambassadors
negotiate: we don’t negotiate about our Peace Donations. Peace Keepers defend a peace that was taken away and won
back. No one can take away the peace given to us by the Creator, any more than someone could take away the rose’s
redness or scent.
