Walk along the road and when the road ends turn left. You ll see the beginning of the stairs. We can gather at the top of the stairs and from there, the park is 2 minutes away
* EVENT INFO *
We'll arrive at 11:30am so come early if you want to connect with others before the meditation begins. At 12pm we will spread out, being conscious to keep public pathways unobstructed.
Then the 1 hour seated silent meditation begins! You can come for all of it, part of it, or sit back and rest in the energy of peace. This MedMob is to bring positive energy and peace to the planet!
* Oguzhan and Serkan will be organizing the meditation event on Sunday as I will be out of town for the weekend. Thank you both!!!
* OUR GOAL *
1. To expose the world to meditation through public display of meditation.
2. To create an environment for people from all walks of life to come together in meditation.
3. To come together as a Global Community to send positive intentions out into the world.
4. To promote the importance of peaceful energy to create positive change.
You can participate in all or part of the following:
* THE MEDITATION *
Noon to 1pm we will be sitting in silent meditation. Make sure not to block any public pathways, otherwise, sit anywhere you like... spread out all over the place and lets create a profound experience.
The meditation will not be led by anyone. Please follow your heart and your own inner guidance as to how best participate in the meditation. Even if you have no prior meditation experience, you can still imagine peace and love in the world, feel this energy in your heart and radiate it out in the world around you. It is with our focused intention that we create real change in the world around us. Know that we are powerful beyond measure! Know that we each bring our own unique energy to the meditation and that what we do will be absolutely perfect! We are moving into a time where we will all begin to trust ourselves and be guided by our hearts.
Show up early and connect or you can show up anytime between Noon and 1pm and start sitting.
* THE OM SOUND BATH *
At 1pm we will begin the OM sound bath. We will all gather at one spot TBA to do an 11 minute sound bath. When you hear the sound bath begin, just join in.
Listen to an example of an OM sound bath here
After the OM sound bath, the MedMob is officially over, but feel free to stay around and connect with others.
