Last Sunday, our ARE New York community celebrated Mother Nature with like-minded friends and connected with new ones. We enjoyed free workshops and demonstrations of Qigong Healing by Amir Shah and Ethan, Chakra Yoga by Yuko Kudo, Eurythmy by Marta Stemberger and Sound Healing by Elizabeth Tomboulian.
Our HuMandala for World Peace was inspired by volunteer Lydia Martinez and created by Danyel Villar-Galicia especially for our picnic. Several of us joined together to form this human mandala and sent out our loving prayers, intentions and sacred tones for world peace!
Many thanks to Maria Gutierrez-Ferrar for coordinating picnic volunteers and workshops, to Eric Ferrar for these excellent photographs, and to other volunteers who also made this wonderful day possible: Jessica Trovato, Roman Schlesinger, Nya Fleron, Dan Morales, Anthony Perez, Lydia Martinez, Paul Patous and Erdan Bajro; and to Helen Mawn, Amelia Darcy and others who helped procure and pack/unpack essential supplies.
