CommonPassion.org, in cooperation with many local and global groups, orchestrated an interfaith global meditation and prayer event during the period from May 15 to May 29, 2007. This event was a series of meditation and prayers for community and global peace. Participants performed their own meditation, prayer or ceremonial practice, at their own specified time(s) and place(s), but shared a common “intention agreement” for peace.
It is estimated that between 700,000 and 800,000 people, in 51 countries participated in this two-week program from many different faith-systems, religious groups, indigenous communities and meditation assemblies. All participants were volunteers, and no attempt was made to audit numbers of participants. It is assumed that some estimates of group participation were high. Also, many people participated in the global meditation that did not register. Some groups met in physical assemblies, some were organized non-locally using agreed upon time synchronizations, and some groups were a combination of local and non-local participation. Some groups performed some or all of their consciousness activity via guided, live teleconference and or videoconference.
Concurrent with the prayer-meditation practices an analysis was performed of the Global Consciousness Project’s (GCP) network of random event generators and showed a correlation between the meditation-prayer event activity and the activity in the GCP network.
