Guided by Joe Weston
Start your Tuesdays with us during a 30–45 minute virtual gathering of a diverse group of people from around the globe to cultivate the hope, intention and implementation of Lasting Peace worldwide.
Lasting peace begins with self-awareness, inner stillness and the courage to respectfully connect with others. Together we discover new solutions to our current issues that honor the humanity and dignity of us all.
To realize lasting peace, equality and fair equity for all, start by inhabiting your own heart, adopting the courage to see your own unconscious behavior. Develop respect, compassion and skills to speak to and listen to those who are different.
You are invited to share this online experience with your significant others—family, friends, colleagues and communities. Consider sharing it with those you are struggling to like too.
Guided by Joe Weston, founder of Respectful Confrontation, unite around the importance of lasting peace, courageous civility, and respectful confrontation.
Joe will lead us through The Core Exercise for Lasting Peace, a practice of developing presence, grounding, courage and an increased capacity to engage with more and more beings in an empowered, resilient, openhearted way.
Meditation closes with a dedication and acknowledgement of our collective efforts.
Let the sound of heart-filled stillness ring throughout the world, cut through the confusion and call us to our highest!
— Joe Weston
