"I Stand For Peace" launched by the Art of Living Foundation on April 20th this year in Geneva, Switzerland, as part of Gurudev's tour of over fifteen cities in Europe and North America, including Berlin, Warsaw, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. The "I Stand for Peace" campaign endeavors to strengthen and channel individuals' commitment to peace holistically during these turbulent times. The worldwide sense of helplessness and hopelessness caused by the pandemic, war, and inflation has weighed heavily on the human psyche. According to the World Health Organization, the biggest challenge of the pandemic has been mental health.


Organized by the Chicago chapter of the nonprofit Art of Living Foundation, the "I Stand for Peace" event will be a special evening of guided meditation, music and wisdom led by Gurudev. The event will also include an interactive session where audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions directly to Gurudev.

International Peace Campaign of Global Humanitarian Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Comes to Chicago

For the past forty years Gurudev has been a pioneering teacher of meditation and revered for his development of the clinically-proven SKY Breath Meditation (SKY stands for Sudarshan Kriya Yoga), a comprehensive series of breathing exercises that has benefitted an estimated 400 million people--from students to war veterans--across more than 150 countries.

On this visit to Chicago after 8 years Gurudev comes as a beacon of peace to a city that has been plagued by violence and shootings. His fundamental philosophy of a stress-free, violence-free society has dynamic implications for the individual and society at large.

This historic visit is a public event and all are cordially invited to experience the powerful meditations and music. A transformative evening, that promises to bring waves of peace to Chicago. The footprints of peace are deeper than the shadows of violence. Peace begins at the level of each individual. Be a part of this change.
