The Earth Clinic Meditation and Prayer Group had its inception in the spring of 2007 in response to global tragedy, both natural and man-made. Many of our friends, colleagues in healing, acquaintances from Native American nations, and members of the Earth Clinic community had already been involved in local prayer and meditation groups, but there was an overwhelming feeling that a concerted, additional effort needed to be made to address the enormity of suffering that had ensued from events such as the genocide in Darfur, tension in the Middle East and climactic changes affecting areas across the world.
As a group we decided on implementing an analytical component to our prayer sessions, a component we felt had been missing. We followed the news and other data sources to determine which prayer formats were the most effective. Our intention was to track the practical results of our spiritual endeavors.
Our other aim at our inception was to harness the power of local prayer groups through an inter-connected global community, such as the one that Earth Clinic had pulled together over the past 15 years. Today, we stand strong at over 7,000 members drawn from the USA as well as countries around the world. We each pray at our own times, in our own homes, meditating on issues of global concern, whether this be in Mumbai, Christchurch, Arusha, Dubai or Los Angeles. We reflect a world full of prayer, mutual support and needs.
Once a month, we choose a focus for our meditation and publish the topic title through this newsletter. How you address the topic is up to you. We only ask that you set aside at least 10 minutes on Sunday at 9 pm, your local time, and direct your thoughts towards our common intention.
