The Revolution is in your hands…Here’s how to do it

I’ve been getting a lot of requests for help in creating a Public Meditation Project group in various different places across the US…there’s already one in Germany :-)

What is Enlightenment? Magazine (August, 2008 issue) featured a story about the Public Meditation Project and said that the movement “…may represent the next big thing among Gen-Y spiritual seekers in America, and the trend seems to be catching on fast.”

Since this is a decentralized, grassroots movement, I am posting simple guidelines so all Public Meditations are the same even if they are geographically separate. I ask that you please use the Public Meditation logo exactly as it appears in all flyers, promotion, articles, etc. It is under a creative commons license(see bottom), and you are free to download and use. (PMP logo here, and here).

Sample Flyer for Public Meditation Groups

If you feel you are a Spiritual Activist, you should take a quick glance to the Principles of Spiritual Activism found on this link.

I have to make a special mention of the Oekomed blog, it is a group led by Sebastian Gronbach who is doing Public Displays of Meditation in Germany using this same concept and framework.

Below are some pics from their blog and others I’ve received from the meditating public:

The only “leader” in this revolution is the guiding inner light inside of you.

When you begin to meditate, you are performing the only completely free activity there is in human life. And when you begin to meditate in public, you show this freedom. And everybody can participate this powerfull energy.

You are not longer talking about freedom, peace and silence. You practice freedom, peace and silence.

More: YOU ARE freedom, peace and silence - and everybody can take a picture of it. :-)

Thank you Alex!
