With only 11 days left until the MedMob Sydney inauguration, the interest has been ramping up. Hopefully with fine weather, we’ll be expecting at least 200 participants and may potentially be the largest ever public group meditation in Sydney!
As many already know, the event is from 11am – 12:30. The silent meditation space is open for an hour however MedMobbers are welcome to sit for whatever time they see meaningful and conducive to their own practice. It is the intention to provide such time that people can come, go, lie down, chill and bask in the peace rather than sitting the entire time. At Midday, all participants will convene in a circle for the soundbath, ‘ommming’ together for 13 minutes. Again, participation in the soundbath is completely optional.
To continue to ensure that MedMob Sydney is a sustainable, ongoing event that nurtures a sense of inter-relationship and community amongst diverse groups in our city, we’ll have a small stall at the event selling ethically sourced Nepalese handicrafts (a huge thanks to Alex Sebby for his kind donations). This will assist with ongoing promotional costs with MedMob Sydney and it is hoped in the near future to support charitable organisations to foster ‘meditation in action’.
A film reel of the event will also be created on the day and will be distributed to the wider world via social media, Youtube and the like. Gratitude is extended to Damith Herath (http://www.damith.org) for the filming and Hazzy Bee (http://www.hazzybee.com) for the beautiful music.
We’d love you to spread the word and share the event with as many friends as possible. A number of other exciting monthly MedMob events are in the pipeline and will be held on weekends.
A big thanks goes out to all those who have assisted with the planning, development and promotion of this grassroots silent revolution.
Look forward to sharing the love on the 11th November!
