Monthly Peace Meditation, Cleveland OH

The Network of Spiritual Peace Activists is again sponsoring an evening of meditation for peace in the Cleveland area.

This month the group will gather on
Tuesday, January 20th
at the Euclid Ave. Congregational Church at 7:00 pm.

This is a wonderful way to observe Inauguration Day. Everyone is welcome to join in for an hour or so of quiet contemplation and sharing of readings. The church is located at 9606 Euclid Ave on the Cleveland Clinic campus and has its own parking lot directly adjacent to the church. The meeting will be in the parlor.

Discussion on the current situation in the Middle East will follow the 30 minutes of meditation/silent prayer, as this is something that weighs heavily on our hearts. 

InterAct Cleveland is in the process of looking into what role it can play here locally in working with the various religious traditions to try as best it can to dampen hostilities that are being heightened by the violence taking place in Israel and the Gaza Strip. Sensei Dean Williams will report on projects being undertaken by InterAct and looks forward to hearing the perceptions and ideas of those in attendance.

You are invited to bring a short reading on spirituality and peace to share with the group. Information to share on social/political issues and events or currently pending legislation pertaining to peacefully existing in the world is also very welcome.

Past locations for this newly formed ongoing multi-denominational event: December 17, Pilgrim Congregational United Church of Christ. November 18, Noble Road Presbyterian Church, Cleveland Heights. October 15, St. Paul’s Community Church, Ohio City.


The event is free. For more information contact
Sensei Dean Williams, Jijuyu-ji Zen Group of Cleveland

Hello, my name is Pam M. from InterAct Cleveland. I wanted to also let you be aware that we are also committed to working on side projects while we continue the dialogues for peace within the Muslim / Jewish populations. Our largest side project to date is the Homeless Stand Down, a three day event which is trying to bring together 500 volunteers to help over 2,400 people in need. We would love it if you as a peace activist comes and participates with us at the Stand Down. Please visit www.interactcleveland.org or www.homelessstanddown.org for more information.

Thank you!

Hello, Pam!
Yes, I am signed up for the February 16 event at Trinity to give Reiki to the homeless. I urge others to visit your website to see the many ways one can be of service.
