About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace - Elizeth Labega

A beautiful video from Elizeth Labega with footage from a rally held by The Peace Coalition of Monterey County, California in the USA on 13th November this year - just in. Thank you Elizeth!

Elizeth commented that the rally was held to push for an "...end to American involvement in war and more effectively use the resources currently being consumed by war.  The rally united people from a wide variety of walks of life and political affiliations."

Peace can be achieved if we all come together and stand as one voice and insist on it. If you find yourself at a peace rally anywhere in the world, why not make a 12seconds for Peace video while you are there and send it in? Once your rally is over, its message can live on through this project. Send your videos in to: 12seconds4peace@gmail.com

12seconds for Peace - Rohani Razak

Another great video in from Rohani Razak from Singapore - peace is the only way to go, as Rohani makes clear. But how can we achieve peace? How can we let those in power know that this is what we want? How can we make them realise that the majority of people on this planet have had enough of the war-mongering, the hate, the excuses to justify violence against our fellow citizens? One way is to contribute to this project. If enough people engage with 12seconds for Peace - if enough people stand together and let those in power know that peace is our wish, our right, our demand, then perhaps we stand a chance of achieving it.

12seconds for Peace - Zententions - 2

Another great video in this time from Jen and Billie at 'Zententions'. Their message, 'We are free to be change makers' is really the dawning in all of us that we are the ones that decide whether there is peace in the world or not. Peace is not an abstract concept or a theoretical construct; it is the state of reality, once we realise that we can in fact, through the force of our own intentions, change the way that the world is.It is entirely up to us.

The photographs used in this video are by Zen photographer Stephen Chard.
