World Peace DayWe’ve come a long way since John and Yoko’s “bed-ins” in 1969 were the best way to mobilize the masses to promote peace. Now the Global Care Initiative of the Institute of HeartMath (IHM)—a nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people live healthier, happier lives—has created Global Care rooms where people can connect online in real time to share their thoughts, meditations, and hopes for a more compassionate world.

The theme of IHM’s World Peace Day 2013 is “Love First, Peace Follows,” which is about the power of positive feelings generated by many people at the same time to expand compassion throughout humanity. According to Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., president and CEO of HeartMath LLC, sharing feelings of love may be “the missing piece in the peace equation.” As she wrote in an article for the Huffington Post, “Personal peace creates the baseline for global heart expansion into a higher vibration.… As we release more of the love that we truly are, then peace will seek out that environment.”

If you haven’t yet joined the peace wave, you can do so via your mobile device, Facebook, or the Global Care Initiative website at selected times on September 19, 20, and 21. Find out more at
