The Spiritual Caucus supports the aims of the United Nations as expressed in the Preamble to the UN Charter.

We seek to balance and strengthen the endeavors of the UN system and its affiliates with inner reflection and stillness.

We meet from September to June at the UN Headquarters to spend time together in silent reflection, share our insights, and explore ways of using this inner focus to serve the highest potential of the UN.

Anyone interested in supporting the UN in this way is welcome to join us. We invite groups and individuals who cannot be with us in person to connect with us in silence on the first and third Thursday of the month.
