Now…what did your momma tell you about those PDMs — public displays of meditation?
On January 30th, 2011 a group of yogi activists in Austin brought the daily hubbub at the Texas State Capital Building to an utter stand still with a mass meditation flash mob. Joining together with a collective intention to “unite in a shared prayer of peace” and demonstrate how “simple acts can stimulate major paradigm shifts,” dozens of peaceful meditators gathered in a circle beneath the central rotunda and seemed to shake the entire building with the sound of their “OM“.
Organized by a local donation-based yoga studio, Black Swan Yoga, the video above has inspired waves of yogis and meditators across the country to organize ‘Med-Mobs’ of their own. The next wave of peaceful activism will culminate this coming Sunday, February 27th, with mobs planned already in Austin, Boulder, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles. Interested in getting your PDM on too?
