First Cool Kids Earth Day Workshop 2024

Enjoy impressions from Today’s “EARTH Power within You” Meditation Public Workshop

Volunteers from 100 Seeds of Joy community initiative seen today at their first Earth Day active celebration in Burligton (Sat, April 20, 2024)

Photos and video-clips from Today’s FUN Earth Day Celebration offered by 100 Seeds of Joy team

Participants and volunteers from 100 Seeds of Joy community initiative launched by Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network in the Halton region in 2023.

We had a solid list of parents, children and guests that RSVPed to participate in our workshop.

However, as always we had drop-ins as well; therefore we ended up offering “Cool Kids and Parents” creative meditation workshops in “waves”. One family at a time will go through the “cycle of activities”.

The feedback was nothing new, meaning that is always positive! We enjoyed knowing that some families wanted to join our previous events since a long time. Finally “here” they really enjoyed the special attention they received with this “Cool Kids and Parents” more intimate “learn & experience meditation” approach.

You can listen spontaneous feedback and glimpses from the last workshop that day in the following short video-clip.

Next: Earth Day in Quotes of Wisdom from Sahaja Yoga Meditation and Indigenous Peoples

At our classes and events we also are sharing information that we consider to be not just useful or interesting, but also nurturing for one’s heart and mind. We have collected a few snippets of wisdom for you below.

As always the words of wisdom are accompanied by some images, some are photos that we took today in Burlington, or yesterday in the neighbourhood showing the beautiful elements of Mother Nature from here and now.

However, some images will take you to Mother Earth’s other places and will provide other connections.

Let’s absorb and enjoy everything, with every breath, with every glance, and with every realization!

“It’s very remarkable how the Nature is so much within us. We are not something separate.

“This Mother Earth is our Home.

We have a Home in Her and

She has a Home within ourselves.”

“We have to learn from Mother Earth ..

in that beautiful creation within you,

You have to become very sensitive to the need of the World.

What is the need of the World?!”

Quote 3

“Today, we have to understand the connection,

and the symbolic expression of the Mother Earth within ourselves.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation ( August 21st, 1983)

Quote 5

“Look at the Collective Sense which is given to us by this Mother Earth.

We have never realized that this Mother Earth which is giving us everything that we want and the Sun helps the Mother Earth, co-operates, co-ordinates within you.

So it is the primordial power which is coming out of the Mother Earth.

Mother Earth itself acts like a Mother: She looks after you, She gives you whatever you want.

“That means this all thinking, all understanding, all consciousness, all awareness is coming from the Mother Earth.

But we never understand, as we take it for granted.

    It brings so much joy to see little kids meditate. The amazement they have when they feel the cool breeze on top of the head, is priceless! I simply love the clay meditation. As this article describes, it connects us with Mother Earth. I encourage everyone, big or small to join. Let’s see what you can make with clay in thoughtless awareness state?

    Beautiful ❤️

  3. Helen

    So joy giving.
    Just precious! Wonderful experiences.

  4. Paula

    The young girl without knowing what to feel during meditation said she felt a cool breeze flowing out of the top of her head after the short meditation. Good times were had by all from ages 2 to 83! I was impressed by the clay sculpting figures inspired once the creativity chakra was ignited. Everyone loved clay making! The meditation was simple yet life affirming. Thank you again and again!
