INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE CELEBRATION
September 21 is the SATTVA School of Yoga’s International Day of Peace Celebration: a United Nations appointed day devoted to the recognition of international peace and ceasefire. On this special day we take time to nurture the peace within ourselves and our environments, holding space for our global community and doing our own small part to support the whole. Inner peace to outer peace.
Our goal this year is to come together, as a group of 108 yogis, to meditate on the ancient Tibetan symbol and seed sound of Hung (pronounced Hum)- a powerful and divine sound of wisdom and compassion.
When used in meditation, Hum (or Hung) purifies and cleanses the practitioner from hatred and brings one to embrace love, kindness and compassion, helping one achieve enlightenment and self-realization. The syllable Hung means indivisibility or something which cannot be torn apart. It is a reminder that within us all, we hold an unbreakable source of purity and light. This symbol is also adorned by Rameen at his heart centre.
We invite you to join us in holding space as a collective community for an evening of exploration into the wisdom of this mantra and to honour the Sattvic qualities of harmony, balance and peace that exists within all beings.
