In what has to one of the most Cape Tonian things ever, like-minded people are going to gather on Camps Bay beach on the 28th of October on a journey towards peace by uniting together and meditating for positive & peaceful change on the beautiful beaches our mother city has on offer. Their vision is to grow with the eventual aim of raising the number of meditators in the Cape Town region to a record number.
“Meditation has the potential to literally transform the world. In 1978, what is known as the “Maharishi Effect” took place when a group of 7000 individuals over the course of 3 weeks were meditating in hopes of positively effecting the surrounding city. They were able to literally transform the collective energy of the city which reduced global crime rates, violence, and casualties during the times of their meditation by an average of 16%. Suicide rates and automobile accidents also were reduced with all variables accounted for. In fact, there was a 72% reduction in terrorist activity during the times at which this group was meditating.”

For those that are wondering about the upcoming gathering, please find below a message from beloved meditation instructor, Shanti:
Radiant sun filled greetings beautiful beings! smile emoticon
We begin another summer of feeding our souls… our being … and transcending that intrinsic beauty within, sharing it with the world around us.
It is with such gratitude, honor and joy that we start our summer meditation evenings with something new. A taste of the works of the great Osho, with a form of his hara stop meditation.
The hara is the seat of consciousness, it is located a couple of centimeters below the navel, inside our bodies. Hara´ is the Japanese term used for the center of consciousness.
This center gives us a sense of grounding or rootedness, for some necessary if we are to remain unaffected by our increasingly stressful and somewhat fast paced society.
Hara awareness functions like the ballast in a ship, in spite of all the “storms,” the ups and downs of your internal and external worlds, when you are in contact with your Hara you are in touch with the unchanging source of strength inside. You are at your center, thus all of your being is that of your higher self.
This active and movement filled mediation involves four stages:
The first stage: We begin with sitting and rotating our upper bodies in a clockwise direction. By doing this we are spiraling or pulling energy from source into our hara, awakening the hara.
Stage two: We rise from the seated position, placing our hands just below our navel’s, at the hara center. Keeping our awareness at the hara center, we begin to feel this energy point in our bodies as we walk around each other. Making eye contact with one another as we pass by each other, walking at a steady pace, here we feel the hara in movement.
Stage three: In this phase, WE DANCE! – The purpose here is to release all the energy that is not needed in the body. So that we may achieve a state of no mindedness, moving us more deeply into that connection in the hara, the connection to the heart… letting go of all thoughts. We dance with all our being, raising the energy level to great heights. Feeling that we are pouring everything we have into this dance.
Stage four: This being the last stage of our mediation, we sit back down and at this point, our bodies and minds are still. Allowing for one to be in the hara center, in that place of no mindedness. Here we are in silence, with awareness of our breath, awareness to the energies that are flowing into our being, and from our being.
This is an effective and playful guided meditation through which to find your ´still point´ and balance that brings it. Centered in the Hara, we can access the qualities of calmness, courage, discipline and decisiveness.
We look so forward sharing this life changing experience with you all!
NAMASTE beautiful beings 🙂 ॐ “
