Today was a happy day.
We gathered together at the Memorial Stadium in Seattle, right next to the Space Needle, to build a human banner!
The event was hosted by ECO (Earth Citizen Organization), and was put together by some of our local students who wanted to bring people together to create JOY ~ literally 🙂
Approximately 50 people sat and lied down on the ground, bundled in their winter coats and hats, while a drone flew overhead snapping shots of them.
I was blessed to be asked to lead a short meditation, so I got to see the whole thing from the press box! When I clicked on the microphone to speak, I was almost in tears feeling the sincere hearts of all the participants who had come out into the cold afternoon in the name of something big and beautiful. I could feel that everyone who was there, was there because they had a dream in their hearts. A dream to really truly create a joyful world.
In our meditation I guided them to open themselves up and feel themselves as part of nature – to feel the wind and the trees, to smell the earth. And then to further open their hearts and let their love and light spread out across the planet to people everywhere, of all nations, races & religions. Finally, they ended with a group hug, then burst into a mini dance party. It was definitely a joyful day all around 🙂
I am thankful to ECO for having such a Great Cause under which we could make such a unique event.
I am thankful to Brianna Sieberg who was the captain of it all, and put in a huge amount of effort to make it all happen. It began as a wish in her heart and she made it happen in reality, and I am proud of her for that.
I am thankful to Seattle Yoga News for taking interest and coming to take a bunch of pictures, and to Benny the DJ for rockin’ the house.
And most of all I am thankful to the bright and pure spirits who created JOY together! I am sure that their good vibrations reverberated around the globe!!!
