World Invocation Day Vigil            

Tuesday, June 14 2022

Be part of the 2022 global Vigil for World Invocation Day by using the Great Invocation, on the quarter hour, at times of your choosing on Tuesday June 14.

No registration needed

Align with a moment of silence, use the Great Invocation on the quarter hour, and know that countless others will be joining with you in this rhythm.

World Invocation Day

On World Invocation Day groups and individuals around the planet unite in prayer and meditation to invoke energies of Light, Love and Spiritual Will, using the Great Invocation. World Invocation Day has been observed annually since 1952.

Human Unity

The intention to deepen understanding of the oneness of life and to express that understanding is growing daily within the hearts of people everywhere. In the birthing of a just, interdependent global society we need, above all, more light, love and spiritual will. On June 14 people of all faiths and spiritual backgrounds will invoke these higher energies by using a world prayer, the Great Invocation.

Using the Great Invocation every 15 minutes

On May 26, in all time zones, you are invited to hold an alignment with lighted energies for periods of 15 minutes - using the Great Invocation at the beginning and end of each 15 minutes. Join in for as many 15 minute periods as you wish. So, for the one hour period 9:00 - 10:00 AM, for example, you might use the Great Invocation at: 9:00; 9:15; 9:30; 9:45; 10:00 AM.

The Mindfulness Clock on Your Computer Will Help You Keep the 15 Minute Rhythm

There are a variety of Mindfulness Clocks available on your computer. Many of these can be set to sound a chime every 15 minutes, so as you are continuing with your work on Friday, June 5, you can quietly pause and use the Great Invocation every 15 minutes throughout the day. Imagine the pulse of invocation generated by thousands of people using the Great Invocation on this rhythm.

One Initiative Among Many

The World Invocation Day Vigil was first held in New Zealand in 2000, and since 2003 it has been observed globally, attracting participants from most continents of the world. It is one initative among many for organised, concentrated use of the Great Invocation by groups and individuals on World Invocation Day.

How to participate:

1. Choose the times you will take part in the Vigil. You can organise a gathering in your community so that a group can meditate and use the Great Invocation every 15 minutes or you can take part in the Vigil as an individual.

2. Begin precisely on the quarter hour by using the Great Invocation.

3. Link in thought with others who are also using the Great Invocation at this time and then with everyone in the world who will be using the Great Invocation on this special day.

4. Reflect on humanity's need for light, love and spiritual purpose.

5. Visualise the lighted, loving energies that can create the mental and emotional understanding and atmosphere within which right relations can flourish in ourselves, our communities, our nations, and our world

6. Use the Great Invocation precisely on the quarter hour. As you do this think of the rhythmic pulse of invocation flooding the mental environment of the planet.
