What is a meditation flashmob?
A meditation flashmob is a gathering of people that sit in meditation in a public location, usually no longer than an hour.
Its intention is to raise awareness of meditation in public, unite people from all backgrounds, cultures and faiths together and send positive intentions out to the world. We come together to celebrate our very real capacity to generate peace, already, in the here and now. This is the peace we offer to our cities and to the world.
I understand that it seems to be difficult to meditate in an urban setting. Perhaps many people feel hesitant towards coming to meditation flash mobs because it sounds difficult to be calm and centred in such busy places. What I’ve discovered is that it’s really possible to be at peace in these environments, whether sitting or walking. The key is in being mindful.
When we can have more space and be at peace with what is within and around us, instead of letting it disturb us, create tensions or become agitated, we can realise our capacity to generate peace throughout our daily lives.
This is how we can bring meditation in all aspects of our lives – not just formally on a meditation cushion but in everything that we do, such as walking in the underground, preparing for a meeting at work, sitting at our desk in front of the computer or standing up in a hot crowded tube.
