The Art of Living Foundation in Dallas is pleased to announce the arrival of the “I Stand For Peace” public event with the global humanitarian leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Dallas. “I Stand For Peace” kicked off on April 20 in Geneva, Switzerland and is touring over fifteen cities in Europe and North America, including Berlin, Warsaw, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas. The Dallas “I Stand For Peace” event will be on Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 7-9 pm at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. The event is free and open to all with RSVP at https://srisriindallas.com/.
The “I Stand for Peace” campaign endeavors to strengthen and channel individuals’ commitment to peace during these turbulent times. The worldwide sense of helplessness and hopelessness caused by the pandemic, war, and inflation has weighed heavily on the human psyche. According to the World Health Organization, the biggest challenge of the pandemic has been mental health.
“If each person makes an intention to stand up for peace and attends to their mental health, we can make world peace a reality. As global peace is not possible without individual peace,” said Gurudev.
“When 1% of the population meditates, it elevates the collective consciousness. Similarly, if enough people say ‘I stand up for peace,’ then we project that energy, that vision, and it will happen!”
Organized by the Dallas chapter of the nonprofit Art of Living Foundation, the “I Stand for Peace” event will be a special evening of guided meditation, music and wisdom led by Gurudev. The event will also include an interactive session where audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions directly to Gurudev.
