The Meditate to Regenerate team is pleased to announce our first tour to Ethiopia that will take place end of November to beginning of December 2016. Our volunteers will be working with schools, universities and other NGOs in Ethiopia, in order to reach out to the local people and provide various cultural activities alongside a meditation technique used to facilitate inner peace.
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. 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.
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.
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 $5,000 is needed to make this tour happen!
We really appreciate your generosity!
