Special PolarConnect Event

WAIS Divide

Special Event - Global Meditation from WAIS Divide, Antarctica

Yamini Bala with Global Mediation, will be hosting a special PolarConnect (real-time) event from WAIS Divide, Antarctica on Saturday, 27 December 2014 at 1900 GMT.

Note: This event is not for our typical classroom-based education audience. Please read description before registering. Direct questions to info [at] polartrec [dot] com

WAIS Divide (West Antarctic Ice Sheet), where the Velvet Ice team is currently stationed, has recently be found to be one of the most vulnerable areas of Antarctica to global climate change. If recent predictions hold true, major glaciers in WAIS could collapse within 100 years, triggering massive shifts in global climate.

Join Yamini Bala and members of the Velvet Ice team for a special PolarConnect event on December 27th, 2014 at 7pm GMT. Using a powerful visualization technique, we will conduct a Global Earth-Healing meditation, with our focus and energy directed toward WAIS Divide and Antarctica, along with the Earth. Engage in climate change action on a different level, using the power of your Consciousness to bring positivity and healing to the planet.

This event is FREE but requires registration.
