Our world is busy and in the turmoil we forget we all share the same space
Go beyond difference and remember the still silent space where everything is One
That space is the same up moutains and in valleys
In cities or fields
In Pleasure and in Pain
In Peace or Conflict
In fact, Wherever YOU are, it belongs to us all
2013! the seventh year and after a marvellous day last year both here and in other places round the world, the idea of stillness and silence, meditation and reflection is spreading. There has been an upsurge in people finding ways to be still, labyrinths are being uncovered in old Churches and used in new ways. Being still is being found to be good. Please keep in touch with Just this Day, sign up for the newsletter and on November 20th this year, join together with others to spread the healing power of quiet. If you are in London, the line up of speakers at St Martin-in-the-Fields will be addressing the universal and timeless tradition of meditation and mindfulness, and how it can be applied today.
Listen here to the Just This Day Programme at both St Martin-in-the-Fields and St James, Piccadilly:

KEEP LOOKING OUT FOR THIS YEAR’S ANNOUNCEMENTS, SIGN UP FOR THE NEWSLETTER AND HELP TO MAKE STILLNESS AVAILABLE TO MANY MORE PEOPLE. WE ALL NEED IT!
Our world is busy and in the turmoil we forget we all share the same space. Go beyond nationality, religious belief or difference and remember the still, silent present where everything is united. That space is the same. In cities or fields. Up mountains or in valleys. In work, study or play. In fortune or adversity. In peace or conflict. In fact wherever YOU are. It belongs to us all.
Just this Day thanks everybody who took part in 2012.
As a way of joining in the stillness movement, listen here to Dame Emma Kirkby and Jakob Lindberg who joined the St Martin-in-the-Fields Choral Scholars, the Ceruti Quartet and Discantvs in the Music for Stillness concert in 2011.

Visit the Gallery and see some of the photographs of walkers from 2011. Over 200 people, many children, walked the labyrinth on the first day and found it a deeply still experience. Labyrinth walkers, can you find yourself?
