silence generates peace
within oneself and in the world
peace begins within each individual heart

silence that connects us
with ourselves, with the world,
and with each other

silence that creates space
for new possibilities

Sit-in Ghent
saturday October 27th 2018


who & what?

silenceforpeace is a new peace initiative in response to the conflict and tumult in the world that arises between different races, religions and communities. Peace begins in the heart of each person and radiates out.


Silence is the missing voice in public debate. Politics can only offer external solutions. Slowing down and embracing silence enables ‘inner’ solutions to emerge. Both are needed.

Silence is a language that bridges all communities, cultures and religions.


Every minute we spend in intentional silence is a contribution to world peace and the evolution of human consciousness.

All those who wish to make such a contribution are invited to come together and sit in silence.
