Sydney’s Inaugural Flash-Mob Meditation
On Friday November 11th groups of people around the globe will exude inner peace, strength, and happiness intended to brighten the day of every observer. ‘Flash-mob’ style meditation offers a public display of mutuality, peace and harmony, promoting the benefits of meditation. This date will kick-off Sydney’s participation in the global meditation revolution with the event scheduled for an hour which will conclude with a 10 minute sound-bath. It’s intended the event will bring together people of diversity, age, background and religion to come together in silent unity.
This movement, known as MedMob, began in January this year when 60 people launched a meditation flash mob in Austin at the Texas State Capitol landmark. In February, the Austin MedMob grew to 250 people with seven other cities hosting their own MedMobs. In eight months, MedMob has expanded rapidly to become a worldwide movement with public meditations planned in more than 130 cities. Sydney will be joining the revolution in style at the Tarpiean Lawns in the Royal Botanical Gardens, overlooking the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Foreshore.
From humble beginnings, MedMob has grown to a global movement, “Our initial intention was to expose Austin to the power of meditation and invite people from all walks of life to join,” commented Patrick Kronfli, co-founder of MedMob. “It’s inspiring to see leaders around the world rise up to create the same experience and it’s exciting to be part of a global movement committed to internal peace.”
MedMob’s are not affiliated with any specific religious or spiritual tradition and everyone is invited to join and participate. People are welcome to attend for all of it, part of it, or just to kick back and bask in the peace. Children and families are most welcome.
Studies in psychology and neuroscience have demonstrated meditation to have a positive impact on health, wellbeing and literally can change the structure and patterns of thinking. MedMob is consistent with increasing developments around the world where people are realising the benefits of seeking internal peace, balance, and fulfilment.
