“We’re all in this together, and we’d better start behaving like it.”
— IONS Founder Dr. Edgar Mitchell
We extend our heartfelt care and concern to all those facing the current escalation of conflict around the world and to everyone everywhere, including all life facing existential threats. As we reaffirm that the mission of IONS is to elevate humanity and our planet beyond the levels of consciousness creating the conditions for self-destruction, we invite you to join us in meditation to build coherence in the collective field, through the higher spectrum frequencies of love and compassion, with IONS Fellow Dr. Michael Sapiro.
— Claudia Welss and your Friends at IONS
From Dr. Sapiro:
In the face of war and its horrifying consequences, we, who live safely at a distance, are not immune from the suffering, nor are we helpless. If we choose to, we can offer a variety of resources, the least of which, but possibly the most powerful, is Love. Collectively, we can direct our loving attention toward those who suffer in hopes of strengthening their resolve and resiliency, and toward those who cause violence and harm, hoping to soften their anger and dissolve the hatred that has gripped their hearts. We know from our research that directing attention with an intentional, conscious purpose has an impact on the field around us. Let us gather then to generate love for both Israel and Palestine. Please join us for a 30 minute meditation for peace.
