Three Mindful Practices for the International Day of Peace

The United Nations International Day of Peace was established in 1981. This year’s theme is sustainable development and outlines 17 goals, including eliminating poverty and hunger and making healthcare accessible to all. The UN calls on countries to achieve these goals in the next 15 years. (To read up on all 17 goals, check out this rap rendition courtesy of the UN Department of Public Information.)

This year, the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has teamed up with the United Nations to offer three guided audio meditations from Center expert and research scientist Cortland Dahl.
