Prior to the People’s March in London we will sit together in meditation as an opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together as a supportive community and express peacefully and in silence our deep care and love for this world and our concern about the ongoing devastation of that which supports life. We will join in solidarity with our brothers and sisters across the globe, as a movement setting a clear intention to bring about the changes for a healthier, more loving world.

What will happen
At 12pm, the sound of the bell will signal the start of the meditation that will last for 30 minutes next to the Joy of Life Fountain. Sitting or standing, firmly grounded on this Earth with awareness and kindness, we pay attention to what it means to be alive, to inhabit this body breathing. Resting with the basic sensations of breath moving in our body, thus connecting with our inner peace and stability, enabling us to respond with clarity and compassion to the challenges of our times.
At 12.30pm, another sound of the bell will signal the end of the meditation and we will join the People’s March.
Organized by friends from Wake Up London & Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement – DANCE
