"Take a Stand, SIT For Change"
Center for Urban Peace's 1st Annual Sit-A-Thon Sunday | September 21st | Noon to 5pm
Join us for an inspiring day of: Group Sitting & Walking Meditation
Yoga, Music & Spoken Word
Location: MLK Civic Center Park in Berkeley Admission: Donations/Pledges. No one turned away for lack of funds.
Activists, Meditators, Yogis, Agents of Change: SIT For Change benefits TransformativeChange
Fund. The fund supports activists in cultivating
their inner lives to become more effective agents
of transformative change
"Like King and Gandhi, Suu Kyi and Mandela, Black Elk and Chávez, when our action is rooted
in presence, the moment-to-moment skill and grace that comes from being self-aware and connected to purpose, that force of deep inner-knowing guides our every step."
1. PARTICIPATE: Register as a participant. Commit to sit for one session or all five. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to support your commitment with a pledge.
2. PLEDGE: You don't have to participate to
support transformative change. Register to make your pledge in solidarity with participants and/or invite others to make a pledge. No amount is too large or too small.
3. SIT: Grab your cushion or blanket
and SIT For Change. ALL are welcome to enjoy an inspiring day of group meditation, yoga, music, and spoken word.
Sitting is action!
Held on the International Day of Peace and Fall Equinox, SIT For Change is a
celebration and affirmation of the power of Transformative Change: when work for a more just, equitable and sustainable society is championed by individuals and organizations that cultivate compassion and presence as much as
they do strategies and campaigns, potential for real transformation -- both personal and social -- begins.
