GLOBAL MALA FOR PEACE (Ireland, 2009)!

Sunday, September 20th from 2-4pm (Dublin, Stephen's Green) rain or shine!! Everyone is welcome!!

The event will consist of a yoga practice and deep relaxation (108 minutes) led by Siobhan Murphy, Tahnee Fournier, Caragh Egan and me and set to live music!

Inspired by Shiva Rea, the purpose of the Global Mala is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or approach to form a "mala around the earth" through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108 on September 20th. This is the Fall Equinox and the yoga world's offering to bring more awareness to the UN INTERNATIONAL PEACE DAY.Any funds raised will be sent to organizations to address the most urgent issues of our times.

"Perhaps the key to transforming war is to give so much joy to the world that we all stop needing violence to reduce our frustrations, ignorance and fear..."

"We, the peoples of the United Nations, determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal right of men and women and of nations large and small....And for these ends to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbors...have resolved to combine our efforts to accomplish these aims." Preamble, Charter of the United Nations.
