Your Peace Makes a Difference

Peace Rock

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” Dalai Lama

When you are peaceful in your heart and mind, you have a peaceful influence in the world.

It’s true! Have you ever noticed that when you’re around someone who exudes peace and calm, they have a calming influence on you? Likewise, whenn you are calm and peaceful, the people around you become calmer and more peaceful. Then the people around them become more calm and peaceful… and Voila! We send a ripple of peace into the world!

Help us send a ripple of peace into the world on March 23rd, 2024 – WHEREVER you are in the world! We have set Saturday, March 23rd at 2:00 pm Mtn as a time to focus on peace in our hearts and in the world.

If you are in Calgary that day, we invite you to join us at the north end of the Peace Bridge and take a short walk through downtown with us.

If you are elsewhere in the world that day, please take a short walk wherever you are (and invite friends and family to join you) to walk in the name of peace. (Preferably at the same time of 2pm Mtn so that you add to the energy of our focused attention – the more people who focus at one time, the bigger the ripple of peace that will emanate into the world.)

We will decorate rocks with messages of peace, love and joy, and leave them along the walk route, or gift them to passersby. We invite you to do the same.

We will also sing the song “Channel for Peace” our anthem for the walk each year, and maybe you’d like to sing it too. You can listen and learn the lyrics through this YouTube video.

Whether I see you at the Peace Bridge that day, or you email me at to let me know you will be doing your own peace walk, I celebrate your participation with us. (You can also email me photos of your participation to the same

“Go in Peace” is the 12th Shin Dao tenet (As channeled by Neil Thrussell) and I am honored to be a co-organizer for this 11th walk in Calgary. More details about the Peace Walk at
