Albany, NY USA

The Albany Peace Project – August 15-22, 2020

Join us in an experiment that will transform how
you view yourself in the world

Please support SNUG 518 by meditating from home for peace in Albany, NY August 15-22, 2020

Dr. Karin Reinhold, Ph.D., Mathematics and Statistics professor at the State University of New York at Albany, will review crime data to see how much of an impact our peaceful intentions have made.

SNUG is the word guns spelled backward which is a metaphor for how the organization works at the street level to reverse gun violence. SNUG workers risk their lives daily to help keep streets safe.

In these dark times, we need to support those that work so hard to bring light.

External Peace Begins Inside Hearts

which is why we start there.  

External Peace literally starts within internally coherent nervous systems.  Trying to inspire peace anywhere else than the human heart is a long way around.

Participate in meditations for the Albany Peace Project and learn how to move your nervous system into satisfying coherence. You may have never known you can feel that good!
