The Meditate to Regenerate team is pleased to announce our first tour to Egypt that will take place in September 2015. A group of more than 30 volunteers will be working with schools, universities and other NGOs in Egypt, in order to reach out to the local people and provide various cultural activities alongside a meditation technique used to facilitate inner peace.
The tour will begin on the 31st August and will last two weeks. Our program will consist of a series of workshops and concerts that aim to help attendees fully realise their true potential, reduce stress and improve psychological and physical wellbeing and resilience. This will allow better decision-making, as well as greater efficiency and productivity at work. As in our previous projects, we will run several parallel workshops at the same time. To achieve the same goal, concerts will showcase diverse music and dance performances by youth from around the world and our art collection will exhibit pieces ranging from sculpture and ceramics to photography, illustrations and painting. Meditation techniques will be used as a core tool in our workshops as they are effective in generating resilience, social cohesion and a holistic wellbeing experience. The number of participants can range from 35-50 people per workshop and up to hundreds for a concert.
As always, our workshops are free of charge, as the experience of the meditation we teach is priceless. Therefore, in order to cover the costs of the tour, your donations are essential for our success.
A total of $15,960 is needed to make this tour happen!
We really appreciate your generosity!
