Join us for a global meditation flash mob co-ordinated with over 300 cities around the world, on the occasion of World Water Day.
Every year the UN designates 22 March as World Water Day. It’s a chance for us to think about what freshwater means to us. And what it could mean to the millions of people around the world living without it.
This meditation is an opportunity to reflect collectively on the importance of water in our lives and in the world, and send out our love and gratitude.
We Love Water.
We Thank Water.
We Respect Water.
We Are All Water.
We Are All One.

11.30am: The sound of the bell will mark the start of silent sitting meditation. The purpose is to stop in the here and now, and to simply observe our in-breath and out-breath. By practising mindful breathing, we can share our inner peace with those around us. By sitting simply to sit, we can just be in the moment.
Please feel free to follow your own practice if you have one. Feel free to mindfully stretch or move if your begin to ache from your sitting posture.
During this meditation, you can also reflect on the importance of water in our lives and in the world, and send out our love and gratitude.
12.00pm: The sound of the bell will mark the start of the sound bath. Use any mantra or sounds, for example, Om, Ah, Ong, Nah or any other sound that calls you personally. You can move closer to one another, donate your physical presence, your positive energy and your voice. Feel free to bring instruments to add to the sounds.
12.10pm: The final sound of the bell will mark the end of the meditation.
Bring: Feel free to bring a cushion, mat or stool if you have one. Instruments to add to the sound bath, such as singing bowls.
You will be responsible for keeping your personal belongings safe.
