All Night Vigil 2016
supporting the care of refugees in Greece
Saturday 10th September // Gaia House (and other locations)
DANCE are pleased to be organising an all-night vigil on Saturday 10th September 2016 at Gaia House, raising funds in conjunction with the Mandala Trust supporting a particular refugee project for mothers, their children and unaccompanied children at a makeshift camp in Greece.
This is an opportunity to practice in a very special way – through the exquisite stillness of the night, in a heartful community, and with a skillful intention to look inwards and also participate in a compassionate action. If you can’t make it to Gaia House, you are also very much invited to organise your own vigil. Please don’t be put off by the notion of staying up all night – participants have reported each year just how beautiful it is to practice in this way, with the intention to connect and support other people providing fuel for our fires when tiredness comes (and goes).
The proceedings at Gaia House will be facilitated, and there will be a schedule to support us through the night, although participants need to have some experience of meditation as this will not be a ‘taught’ event. Please contact Jane on firstname.lastname@example.org to register or to let us know if you would like to organise a vigil. If you would like to sponsor those who are participating, please visit www.justgiving.com/Sangha-Fundraising. This is a ‘group sponsorship’ page, which participants can also ask their sponsors to visit in order to donate money.
