The America Meditating Radio Show has partnered with the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) Belief Team, spearheaded by Values Partnerships, to launch “BELIEF Days of Compassion and Healing” on the American Meditating Radio Show from Friday September 11, to Monday, to September 21, 2015, at 8:00 a.m. EDT and online 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
The show, hosted by Sister Jenna, an award-winning spiritual leader and founder and director of the Meditation Museum in Metropolitan Washington, D.C., will broadcast around the world and engage conversations from all cultures, faiths and spiritual traditions, as they share their stories of compassion and how they transformed their lives from a fear-based existence to one of peace, compassion and forgiveness for others.
What are the “BELIEF Days of Compassion and Healing?”
Inspired by Oprah’s landmark upcoming BELIEF Series and the International Day of Peace, from September 11th – September 21st, people around the country will be engaging in a conversation called the BELIEF Days of Compassion and Healing.
The idea is simple: we still see many divides in our world, particularly along spiritual and religious lines. During this time we want to begin to build a vision for what’s possible in a world of deeper compassion for one another – and begin to tear down the walls.
We invite people from different backgrounds to engage in conversations on social media and within their communities – Twitter Town Halls, Facebook Forums, dinner dialogues, coffees, community gatherings – where you share the BELIEF trailer, discuss why these divides still exist; and what we can each do to begin to break down the walls, in our communities, every day.
During this period, hundreds of BELIEF Team members will take small steps to connect with others from diverse backgrounds. From chats over coffee to dinner dialogues to connecting BELIEF to existing events, these days will help introduce the world to the messages of unity within the BELIEF series with the intention of bringing people together with a new vision – a vision in which human beings can live together from a place of compassion and peace instead of fear and division.
What is the BELIEF?
BELIEF is an upcoming seven-night programming event which will be aired on OWN on October 18 – October 24, 2015, illuminating various religions around the world – the rituals, stories and relationships at the heart of different faiths, and the ties that bind human beings together. It will feature a collection of deeply personal and culturally diverse stories about the unique spiritual journeys of people around the world as they work to seek lives of meaning and purpose greater than themselves.
BELIEF shows how for billions of people around the world – Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, and those from other diverse backgrounds – their faith and their communities strengthen them, help them endure tough times, and allow them to soar. “Belief” is co-produced by the award-winning production companies Harpo Studios and part2 pictures. Executive producers are Oprah Winfrey, Sheri Salata, Jon Sinclair, David Shadrack Smith, Greg Henry and Kim Woodard. Click here for a sneak peek of “Belief” www.oprah.com/seebelief
