Meditate en-masse

Mount Drury will once again be the place to be at this Saturday if you are seeking inner peace.

A mass meditation will take place on August 11 at 11am, at Mount Drury.

“This meditation is for the eclipse and is leading up to the big one next year at Eden Park,” says event organiser Angela Bowerman.

“The big one next year is being judged by the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest mass meditation in the world.

“The current record holder event was judged in Toronto, and was held for 15,000 people,” says Angela.

“We’ve held about six smaller mass meditation events in the Bay area in the last eight months.”

Angela says she got into meditation on a massive scale when she thought of the big issues facing Kiwis and wanted to try and find a solution.

“I realise we have a high domestic violence rate here in New Zealand, we have a high suicide rate, and I was trying to think of ways we could combat this. I did some research and, on a large scale, mass meditation has been proven to reduce things like that if we have the same intention.”

The event being held in Mt Maunganui today will be led by Mataora Rongoa Hotoke, Angela says.

“This is our chance to collectively speed up the process, therefore we are using the opportunity of solar eclipse on August 11 to create a portal in which we unify our consciousness and enlighten the energy field around the planet,” the Facebook page says.

The event today is a leadup for a larger event being held in Auckland in November 2019.

The goal for the larger mass meditation in Auckland is to educate, enliven, and expand the New Zealand community – breaking the world record will be a bonus. This event will be a family-fun-day, with a mass meditation event taking place as well.

Bring your own mat, and bottled water will be available.
