Mass Guided Meditation Aims to Heal Planet

Planetary Peace Meditation, the Pensacola organization dedicated to “healing the planet, one meditation group at a time,” will host Pensacola Points of Light, a guided outdoor meditation for peace and happiness, at 11 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. on March 30, at the Vince Whibbs Community Maritime Park. The event will be held in conjunction with Pensacola VegFest 2019. 

Organizers Ken and Connie Williams, who co-own The Institute for Pranic Healing, in Gulf Breeze, say they hope 1,000 or more people will turn out to create an event like no other in Pensacola’s history.

“For centuries, Mother Earth has lovingly supported life for all beings. In recent decades she has been stressed and neglected,” Ken says. “As a result, we are experiencing climate change, with extreme storms and the possibility of major global changes. In our local community, and just to the east and west, we have personally experienced devastating hurricanes. 

“Mother Earth is surrounded and infused with stress energies, heaviness and negativity. Humankind has finally arrived at a point where we can come together as a group to do something good that can change the world. Through our thoughts—the power of intention—and our actions—the will to do good—we can join together and create a positive impact for the Earth by blessing it with energies of hope, love, kindness, positivity and peace.”  

Location: 301 W. Main St., Pensacola, FL (the amphitheater behind Wahoo Stadium). For more information, email
