San Francisco Region’s Fremont Dahn Yoga Center held an Earth Day event on Sunday April 22nd at the Petit Cafe in Fremont, California. Dahn Masters reached out to the public to promote their Meditate and Make a Difference! Earth Awareness Campaign, sponsored by Dahn Yoga andLifeParticleTV.com. This campaign teaches that when we meditate, we are peaceful and take peaceful actions, toward the earth and each other.
Colorful campaign posters invited attendees to get a “Free Earth Hug.” Dahn Yoga members, wearing a Free Earth Hug poster board, handed a ball representing the beautiful blue earth for visitors to hug. In Ilchi Lee’s book “Earth Citizen: Recovering our Humanity,” Lee points out that “…we are all united by our dependence on a single planet-the Earth.” Therefore, we must all find a way to place the Earth at the center of our personal value system; to own the title ‘earth citizen.’
One quiet gentleman redeeming his Free Hug envisioned embracing the Earth with his beautiful heart and said he felt as though he were cleansing our ocean waters. He was so deeply moved by the earth energies he felt, he quickly signed up for a subscription to LifeParticleTV.com for him and his wife.
Maile Sanchez of the Fremont Dahn Yoga center is a soap maker. She provided natural handmade soaps and LITO kits to give away and to encourage all to do their part to clean up Mother Earth. LITO stands for “Love in. Trash out.” These kits contain a garbage bag and a pair of disposable gloves to pick up trash at any local park, school, lake or just about anywhere.
“Everyone participated with a joyful heart and passion,” shared Maile. “I feel that we need more of this kind of activity to check our growth and overcome our limitations.”
Some members gave copies of The Call of Sedona by Ilchi Lee away as free gifts, and aura readings were offered at the Dahn Yoga booth. Earth awareness does not stop after Earth Day; it will be an on-going promotion with the Dahn Masters of San Francisco Region’s Fremont Dahn Yoga Center.
