Later this month, Oakland’s Lake Merritt will be one of hundreds, if not thousands of places on the globe where you can go to bless our water, meditate for the healing of our water and the reduction of crime in the city. On March 22nd, join Amelía as she leads a guided meditation to honor water and ignite the positive spirit of Oakland. The Bless The Lake event will be broadcast live on the Unify.org linking water ceremonies and mass meditations world-wide. Oakland is one of three featured events that will be highlighted along with Los Angeles and at the Ganges River in India.
In support of the event, our very own Mark Arellano produced, shot and edited two videos to promote the event; a two and a half minute video for their Indigogo campaign, and a shorter one minute video for other social media uses.
Water is sacred. All life depends on water; our own bodies are 70% water. The guided meditation seeks to create a field of resonance to heal our relationship with water, ourselves and our communities. This will also be an innovative experiment into the power of group meditation/prayer to reduce crime. In 1993, mass mediation was found to have reduced crime in Washington DC by 23%. In collaboration with with the City of Oakland and the Institute of Noetic Sciences, they will analyze whether mass meditations like Bless The Lake can reduce crime in Oakland.
If you’d like to support the event, you may donate to their Indiegogo fundraising campaign, volunteer or simply attend. Bless The Lake takes place on March 22nd, from 3:30-6:30 at the Lake Merritt Boulevard Amphitheater.
