If you’d like to add your light to a global meditation event for peace in Syria and the world, please join The Shift Network in a global peace meditation led by James Twyman on Tuesday, March 1 at 3 pm/Eastern Time for Syria.
From Stephen Dinan/The Shift Network, via email:
Are you concerned about the crisis in Syria? Do you want to help support positive peacebuilding in the Middle East?
Last year in the Summer of Peace, we launched the first ever Subtle Activism Summit. Our host David T. Nicol interviewed a wide range of scientists, spiritual leaders, and activists to discuss how the power of prayer and meditation can complement outer peacebuilding efforts to foster both personal and social transformation.
We are delighted to be continuing this innovative work with the Global Shift Meditation series, a monthly program of global meditations that focus on world situations calling for our collective support. Please join us on March 1 for our next event in the series: Peace Prayers for Syria, with Peace Troubadour James Twyman.

Our special guest James Twyman is known as the Peace Troubadour. On the first of February, 2016, James led a worldwide global prayer vigil for peace in Syria from a small village in Israel overlooking several Syrian villages held by ISIL or Hezbollah. Ten days later, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that world powers had agreed to an ambitious ceasefire plan in the region.
The ceasefire agreement is fragile and the roots of violence in the region are deep. Syria still very much needs our prayers. James will share stories from his remarkable recent trip to the Middle East, discuss the inspiration behind the event, and guide us in deep meditation and prayer for the success of the Syrian peace process.
Your host for the call will be Gaiafield Project co-founder and The Shift Network faculty member David T. Nicol.
James F. Twyman is the New York Times bestselling author of 15 books, including Emissary of Light, The Moses Code, and The Barn Dance. In 1994 he put the peace prayers from the 12 major religions to music and began traveling the world as “The Peace Troubadour,” often being invited by world leaders and peace organizations to perform the concert in countries at war. He has performed in Bosnia, Iraq, Serbia, South Africa, Israel, Northern Ireland, and many other places.
James has also produced seven music CD’s, and is the producer/director of five films, including the award winning “Indigo” and the upcoming “Redwood Highway.” He is also the founder of The Beloved Community, a network of spiritual peace ministers around the world, as well as the Seminary of Spiritual Peacemaking which has graduated and ordained over 500 ministers. James lives in Portland, Oregon.
