Lebanon

September 2011 - Sending 18 volunteers from 10 different countries to Beirut, we started a 3 weeks tour around Lebanon. We offered meditation workshops and multi-cultural music and dance performances to orphanages, schools, prisons, Palestinian refugee camps, NGOs (including the YMCA and Caritas), and the American University of Beirut. We reached 1,800 people from all walks of life through 18 concerts and workshops and gave 2 live TV interviews. We did a survey to get feedback from our different events and 92% of participants said that daily meditation could bring something positive to their lives, 62% felt it generated peace within themselves, and 80% said our shows increased their understanding of different cultures.

  • This program has made me aware that the mess and ugliness of life can be prevented through meditation which I shall start to practice.

  • Waves of joy and happiness... I can’t express it. I am very overwhelmed. I love you all!

  • The presence of your group is very important to us and we hope to see you many more times in Lebanon.
