Mass Meditation for Peace
Created by school counselor and a mindfulness instructor Carrie Edmond as a means to expand her network of educators, students and families, the local organization ONE Mindful Maven champions the benefits of mindfulness through coaching, workshops and retreats. Organized in an effort
to “offset the excessive negativity and suffering currently being seen and experienced in the media, the U.S., and the world,” the group’s Mass Meditation for Peace is set to bring together light and energy workers, shamans, healers and peace-lovers for an hour of unified silence in the serene setting of the Jingu House at the Japanese Tea Garden. Led by local artist and graphic designer Danielle Cunningham, the free morning of positive energy and stress relief invites like-minded community members to “be the change you wish to see in the world.” Those unable to attend are encouraged to join the livestream via the Facebook event page
