Albany Peace Project Research


The Albany Peace Project is a 10 year research project designed to determine if an organized group of trained meditators creating a "coherent state" in their bodies and then focusing peaceful intention outwardly can measurably reduce local violence.

Our hypothesis is that focused peaceful intention has real world impact, and dozens of prior research studies suggest it as well.

We are gathering evidence to determine if this approach can positively impact Albany, NY by gathering individuals who either already practice meditation or would be willing to receive free training via the internet and learn specific meditative skills designed to bring the ir nervous system into a state known as “coherence” which facilitates personal well-being, clarity, excellent decision making and optimal performance.

We all have access to this coherent space within ourselves, we just need to learn the reliable skills that enables it to emerge. The Albany Peace Project offers the specific skills to obtain coherence…for FREE!

Karin Reinhold, PhD, Professor of Mathematics at the State University of Albany, will review the violent crime history from the Albany Police Department to determine if our peaceful intentions have had an impact.

Prior research suggests the more people who participate, the greater measurable impact. Please help us in supporting this historic effort while significantly enhancing your own life.

To encourage people to participate in the Albany Peace Project, we are embracing Will Bowen's wildly successful Complaint-Free World bracelet campaign.  This program inspires people to go  21 consecutive days without complaining (which takes the average person 4-8 months).  The program will be accompanied by 10,000 bracelets that we are distributing throughout Albany.  The bracelets will be an outer representation of inner transformation.  

The impetus for distributing the bracelets is to inspire people to make positive changes in their inner life.  These inner efforts strongly magnify the power of a meditation practice to promote inner peace and happiness.   

Help Us Reach Our goal of $2700 to purchase 10,000 Complaint-Free Bracelets to encourage Albany to go Complaint-Free in 2015!

Hear the inspiration for this Complaint- Free Program from Will Bowen, Founder, in this inspiring Video:

After we receive the funding to place this order for bracelets, we can book Will Bowen to come to Albany and present a live presentation of his Complaint-Free World Program at the State University of Albany in November!!   Over 10 million of these bracelets have been distributed world wide and have inspired people to  become more focused, effective and "certifiably happier” after taking the Complaint-Free Challenge.

Please help us raise the remaining $1,975 needed to purchase the bracelets that we intend to distribute around Albany through various retailers.  We can’t book Will to speak until after we order the bracelets.   We already have $725 in donations, but we need the remaining $1,975.

To encourage people to participate, for donations over $175, Bethany is donating a free gift of a combination coherence and subtle energy biofeedback session with a customized meditation CD for you to invoke a specialized healing state for your challenge based the latest intentional research.

Let’s raise this funding quick…so that we can book Will Bowen for November.   Imagine...A Happier Albany...

Imagine if your family stopped complaining...

Imagine if your office stopped complaining...

Imagine if your organization stopped complaining...

Imagine If Albany Quit Complaining 

“If you don’t like something, change it, if you can’t change it, change your attitude-don’t complain.”      Maya Angelou

Imagine If we could positively impact the lives of everyone in our community.

Imagine If we could do this in a fun way that pulls our whole city together.

As outlandish as it sounds, that’s exactly the powerful opportunity that the Albany Peace Project team is working to provide.

To encourage people to participate in the Albany Peace Project, we are embracing Will Bowen’s wildly successful Complaint-Free World bracelet campaign.  Will explains the complete Complaint-Free program in his book, A Complaint Free World—How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted.  

 Bowen’s idea has been featured on Oprah, The Today Show on NBC, The ABC Evening News, CBS Sunday Morning, People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and more.

This program inspires people to go  21 consecutive days without complaining (which takes the average person 4-8 months).   The program will be accompanied by a bracelet that we are distributing throughout Albany.  The bracelets will be an outer representation of inner transformation.  For more information please visit: http://www.acomplaintfreeworld.org and http://www.willbowen.com.

The impetus for distributing the bracelets is to inspire people to make positive changes in their inner life.  These inner efforts strongly magnify the power of a meditation practice to promote inner peace and happiness.

These bracelets are NOT fashion statements, they are tools.  

They are used to help us become more aware of our complaining patterns as we switch the bracelet from arm to arm each time we complain.  The goal is to keep the bracelet on the same arm for 21 days. (See a brief summary of the program below)

We expect to start with approximately 1500 bracelets, and utilize some of them to inspire businesses to offer additional funding support.  Please consider approaching your organization to see if they are interested in being a sponsor.  This is actually a lot of fun when it is approached as a group.  Listen to this endorsement already:

“By the way, I have started complain free Wednesdays at work.  For every complaint, we put a quarter in a cup!  It has been a blast today!!!”  
Ann Becker


Our hope is to start distributing the 10,000 bracelets  in Albany within the next 2 months. Imagine Albany, NY a Happier City!   Please consider helping us start the wave of happiness by contributing to our first goal.
