Sabine Lichtenfels, co-founder of the peace research village Tamera, initiated the Global GRACE Day in 2005 during her first GRACE pilgrimage through Israel and Palestine. Global GRACE Day is a day of the gentle revolution, of meditation and actions in the name of GRACE.
Dieter Duhm, partner of Sabine Lichtenfels and initiator of Tamera, wrote a beautiful text for this year's Global Grace Day. It serves as a foundation for all actions, meditations, pilgrimages and activities on that day and connects them like a common mental-spiritual roof. Below you find this text which may serve as an inspiration for your actions. We invite everyone to take part. Please let us know what you are planning to do!
