On June 1st, a team with sahaja yoga instructors from Halton region had participated to Barrie’s great celebration and popular festival with a booth where anyone interested had a chance to be introduced to thoughtless meditation, kundalini energy and to the subtle system of chakras.
It supposed to rain and it did rain but gently, and the seekers of Barrie showed up to our tent, expressing interest and desire to experience what we had ‘in store’ for them, always amazed that we were volunteers coming from so afar.
The most rewarding for us was the discovery of Barrie’s “children seekers”: kids and youngsters wanted to meditate, they were not sent/convinced by their parents. These young people themselves were curious and willing to ‘do it’, despite the great variety of options made available at the festival for fun and physical exercise. Another beautiful aspect was that they realized the importance of ‘remaining in meditation’ so they did not rush after the ‘experience’; instead they preferred to dive into it deeper, asking us questions and talking to us about ‘the energy’ , ‘the peace’ and ‘sensations’ they were capable to feel during and after meditation. What a blessing for our team to meet such beautiful souls!
We found out that Barrie has amazing landscapes and that Lake Simcoe was named Ouentironk (“Beautiful Water”) by the Huron natives. The water of the lake was incredibly cold despite the warmth of the day however its transparency was so inviting that our team ended up doing a prolonged footsoak on the lakeshore’s rocks; we let go of any subtle blockages at the energy level and we had invited the Water’s divine principle to wash away our eventual impurities. Enjoy the photo album below, it ‘talks’ quite nicely about that special great day in Barrie.
