Public Meditation In Iowa CIty- International Peace Day

Yesterday we went to Iowa City Iowa to celebrate the UN's International Peace Day by performing several Public Displays of Meditation along the crowded parts of the city.

We have lots of great video footage, but unfortunately not a lot of pictures. The videos will be up shortly, so sit tight :-)

About the event:
It was about 20 of us meditating. We picked out 3 locations and performed 10 minute meditations in each location. People came by and looked, others stopped and asked questions, but most people simply stared as they walked past.

The weather was fantastic, and the people were great to be with.

Since Iowa City isn't exactly a major metropolitan city, the feeling was more like meditating in nature.

Videos up soon!

Love and light,
-Alex

Hi Alex,
it was interesting to come across your blog. I have been involved in some public meditation myself, often to promote meditation classes. I have found to be an amazing experience, which has allowed me to go into a deep connection while also drawing so much curiosity from passers by.
