"Take a Stand, SIT For Change"
Sunday, September 21st, Noon to 5pm
Registration Opens: 11am
"Like King and Gandhi, Suu Kyi and Mandela, Black Elk and Chávez, when
our action is rooted in presence, the moment-to-moment skill and grace
that comes from being self-aware and connected to purpose, that force of
deep inner-knowing guides our every step."
Activists, Meditators, Yogis, Agents of Change: Take a Stand
Held on the International Day of Peace and Fall Equinox, SIT For Change
is a celebration and affirmation of the power of Transformative Change:
when work for a more just, equitable and sustainable society is
championed by individuals and organizations that cultivate compassion
and presence as much as they do strategies and campaigns, potential for
real transformation -- both personal and social -- begins.
SIT For Change
Sitting is action! Beginning at EXACTLY noon with a minute of Silence
for Peace shared worldwide, five sessions of group sitting, walking, moving
meditation and yoga are alternated with live music, inspiring messages
and spoken word.
3 Simple Ways to Take A Stand
To register visit our website at urbanpeace.org.
Registration is recommended, but not required.
1. PARTICIPATE: Register as a participant. Commit to sit for one session or
all five. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to support your
commitment with a pledge.

Register to make your pledge in solidarity with participants and/or invite

to enjoy an inspiring day of group meditation, yoga, music, and spoken word.
