Heartfulness Meditation Center of ClevelandOHUnited States

Over many decades the Cleveland Heartfulness Meditation Center has organized local, national, and international events teaching Heartfulness Meditation to all those seeking inner peace and tranquility. Since its inception in 1978 the group has maintained an unbroken commitment of volunteer services that strive to reach the zenith of inner and outer peace on our planet. We established “The Community of Hearts” in June of 2021 and began offering a virtual nightly Intention for Peace via Zoom. The goal of the Community of Hearts is to bring together as many hearts as possible each night at 9 PM EST. Our mission is to, “Create within and radiate from each heart the feeling of peace and universal love. When we come together as a group, we create synergy that affects the collective consciousness of our planet.” In our current undertaking, Heartfulness Institute is partnering with the Dayton International Peace Museum for 64 Days to Peace: https://www.heartfulnessmeditationcleveland.org/64-days-to-peace.

In every facet of community life, both locally and globally, we are committed to embodying and spreading the ethos of unity and peace.” MISSION Our mission is to uphold a culture of peace that celebrates our shared humanity and our deep connection to all forms of life.

We are also committed to a daily practice of unity, where at 9pm EST, individuals connect virtually in a shared Intention for Peace and Universal Love from our hearts to the vast expanse of the universe.

In February 2019, my interest was sparked when I was introduced to the conceptual ideal of a city being recognized as a City of Peace. This peace initiative was being modeled by our associates in Beavercreek, Ohio, who share the same vision of offering Peace, Love and Harmony with our communities as practitioners of Heartfulness Meditation. Through big and small events, it has been a gift to collaborate with others in our community who dedicate time and effort to make a difference in the world. On behalf of the Cleveland Meditation Center, we are grateful for this opportunity. Sincerely, Christine Jones

Yes, I approve the guidelines for an International City of Peace and will provide four or more additional approved signatures of community Peace Team members (see next registration field). “A culture of peace is a set of values, attitudes, traditions and modes of behavior and ways of life based on respect for life, ending of violence and promotion and practice of non-violence through education, dialogue and cooperation. Tenets include: Full respect for and promotion of all human rights and fundamental freedoms; Commitment to peaceful settlement of conflicts; Efforts to meet the developmental and environmental needs of present and future generations; Respect for and promotion of the right to development; Respect for and promotion of equal rights and opportunities for women and men; Respect for and promotion of the right of everyone to freedom of expression, opinion and information; Adherence to the principles of freedom, justice, democracy, tolerance, solidarity, cooperation, pluralism, cultural diversity, dialogue and understanding at all levels of society and among nations; and fostered by an enabling national and international environment conducive to peace.” In addition, the Golden Rule – “Do for others as you would have them do for you” — provides a unity proposition for personal, local and global peace.
