Friday, November 11 · 5:30pm - 6:00pm
Water Tower Park
Chicago and Michigan Avenues, NW Corner
Bring yourself, a cushion, and an open mind. We will peacefully gather in Water Tower Park and quietly meditate for 30 minutes, then chant one continuous sound for 10-15 minutes (read below).
This event is outdoors. Dress appropriately for the weather. If it rains, snows, storms or shines - we will sit. We will ring a gong bowl at 5:30 and again at 6PM.
We invite you to join us for all of it, part of it, or come to hang out and bask in the peace. We invite you to come with your own deepest intention for yourself, your community, & our planet. There are plenty of benches to sit on in case sitting on the ground is difficult for you.
The meditation is a simple, 30 minute, silent meditation followed by a "Sound Bath.” Feel free to say Om, Ong, God, Allah, Ma, Yeah, or any other sound or mantra that resonates deeply within yourself. This part of the MedMob is super fun, impactful, and sounds amazing!
MedMob is a Global Flash Mob Mediation Movement unifying to expand positivity to every walk of life. Every meditator comes with their own deepest intention for themselves, their community, and the world.
MedMobs happen in highly visible places with the intention of exposing and inviting the world to the benefits of meditation and collective prayer. The collective unification of intent and prayer has been proven by numerous studies to increase personal health and lower crime in big cities.
Now imagine the entire world meditating together! This is MedMob's vision.
We're sitting on 11/11/11 in honor of the Himalayan Institute's launch of their year long meditation.
