Climate, Land & Water Meditation
This is a public meditation/demonstration, to raise our spirits, raise awareness, and raise the vibration in these troubled times. We will begin with Land Acknowledgement and Calling the Corners and then silent meditation, ending around 3:30. All are welcome!
Please ARRIVE EARLY to find parking (you may need to park some distance away) and get settled in.
We will gather on the lawn near the Lighthouse - look for the Novasutras signs. We will be outdoors the whole time; please dress in layers and wear comfortable clothes to be ready for sun or fog and lots of wind. You may want a blanket or pad to sit on. If you don't want to sit on the lawn (or do walking or standing meditation for the full length of time), please bring a portable chair or stool. Please be courteous regarding masks and safe distancing practices.
Meditating together is a powerful act. Our signs and our intentional presence are resonant messages for hope and action in the reality of climate disruption and biodiversity loss.
We will have some signs available for you to use, if desired. You are also welcome to bring your own sign to hold or wear around your neck, with inspiring positive messaging about the climate and environmental crises (see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HfN5ntgJtb_fW-LtHjvJfUYfC89CvId9_yQrQL9tk2s/edit?usp=sharing for ideas).
We expect to spend about 30 minutes in silent meditation. Meditation may be still and seated, but walking meditation is also welcome (Michelle can provide guidance if you are unfamiliar with walking meditation practice).
With set-up, opening and closing, expect to be out for over an hour. Learn more at https://novasutras.org/santacruz/santa-cruz-events/#om
