“’One is the human Spirit…’ Into this depth let us silently sink our roots. There lies our only source of peace.”
-Br. David Steindl-Rast, from his meditation at the 30th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1975

In April 2022, our international partners at Dankbar Leben hosted this live peace meditation together with Vivir Agradecidos and Br. David. Enjoy the recording below, which is presented primarily in German, English, and Spanish.

Highlights include opening wisdom from Br. David about trust in life, a quote from Br. David read in eight different languages by people around the globe, and space for a silent meditation.

We invite you to light a candle before beginning this practice. Enjoy listening to the music of multiple languages as you allow yourself to feel a sense of belonging in our global human family.

Question for Reflection

Coming from this place of deep silence, sense into your body and your heart. What is awakened in you right now?

We invite you to share your reflection in the comments.
