This is a time of ultimate challenge in our city, state and nation. In addition to the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, our country is facing complex social, racial, immigration and environmental issues of unprecedented scope. The elections on November 3rd promise to be discordant and their outcome will impact the future of our nation in ways we cannot even begin to imagine.
Each United States citizen should make every effort to VOTE! All of us should encourage others to vote and should volunteer, as we are able, to support the privilege of democratic elections and to help others who may have difficulty in voting. Yoga for Life also plans to support voters, volunteers and candidates, regardless of party and politics, by spending Election Day in continuous meditation/prayer.
In North Carolina, polling places will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. We would like to commit to having at least one person virtually meditating/praying for the highest good of our city, state and nation throughout this entire period of time. We are establishing twenty-six (26) segments (30 minutes each) to organize our meditators. After registering here and in advance of November 3, you will receive a reminder of your commitment, a Zoom Meeting ID/Password for your log in and any additional instructions that might be helpful. You need not do anything other than sit in stillness as part of the Yoga for Life community's committed focus on the health and welfare of our city, state and nation. If you would like to join the event at other times throughout the day, you are welcome to do so.
