International Yogi Travelers met The Mayor of Burlington

International Yogi Traveles met the Mayor of Burlington and Listened to Great Feedback about Sahaja Yoga Meditation experienced by the Seekers of Truth during the Joseph Brant Festival

Poster from one of the events that reflect the collaboration beween Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation (knows as and the Realize Canada Tour that arranged for international yogis travelers to visit our country that year.

Our Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network volunteers were contacted by the Realize Canada Tour 2015 organizers to see if we can help them with the accomodation in Ontario. As always when our help is required, we stepped in with full heart and our team hosted the visitors at our homes, as well arranged opportunities for them to visit our beautiful Burlington city, and even meet some official representations during the city events and festivals that happened during their short visit to this part of Canada. As always, our dynamic collective from Burlington, was also able to arrange last minute events for sharing Sahaja Yoga Meditation workshops in our City, having these internation yogi travelers as our special guests!

One of the last such opportunities was to make sure they participate to the Joseph Brant festival, celebrated each year in Burlington at LaSalle Park on the Civic Day. They watched the opening with the speeches delivered by the Mayor of Burlington (Rick Goldring), Eleanor McMahon (Member of Provincial Parliament for Burlington and Ontario’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. Co-Chair Legislative All Party Cycling Caucus) and Pam Damoff (Member of Parliament for Oakville North-Burlington). Right after, they had a chance to exchange few words and take a photo with them :-).

Such a memorable last souvenir from Canada for the International Yogi Travelers that met The Mayor and other representatiives during a vibrant local festival!

There was a great celebration this year, and as busy as we were at our sahaja yoga meditation booth..

we still found time to walk around, make new friends and enjoy ..

As always, Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation team contiributed  with a well attended booth to this festival. We have not missed any year to BE there with our Burington Community! This time, again we met wonderful seekers, that appreciated our sahaja yoga meditation workshops and what they learned by visiting our booth.

    The young, wise yogis, and the young at heart had a chance to spread good vibrations throughout Ontario with enthusiasm, showing positive action through teaching meditation to visitors of the booth. It is so wonderful and inspiring to see how successful the Youth Tour is and how the stars are aligning for them to meet our Mayor of Burlington Rick Goldring, Members of Parliament, and keen “truth seekers” wanting to experience meditation. The pictures are emitting such beautiful, feel good vibrations. So glad I was able to host some of these fine superhuman international students, you are welcome in our home anytime. Enjoy the rest of Canada!!!!
