Yoga for Healing, Health, and Harmony

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS (see below!). The pandemic has had a profound impact on our psychological and spiritual well being. It has awakened underlying conditions which have been dormant and left many contemplating the meaning of life, our purpose, and what is truly important. The ancient practices of Yoga create healing, health
and harmony.

We may now choose what we reintroduce into our lives, how we shape our reality and better prepare for all future challenges. Yoga allows us to recognize the powerful beings we truly are. Through our collective resilience we can weave together a new world as one humanity. Join us.

Therefore, on the International Day of Yoga, this panel will explore why we must do something about this misalignment in order to realize World Unity.

Connecting to the Sacred Waters Within through Hawaiian Hula

Journey with me as we embody the Sacred elements of Water through Hawaiian Hula. Water is Sacred to the Hawaiian people and chants have been offered throughout time to honor and give gratitude for this powerful life force. Dance is also a Sacred offering, allowing us to embody fully, and activate the power of our prayer. This is a beautiful invitation to experience and express the depths of the Water that is within you and connect to this living life force.

In our time together, I will lead you in a Water Oli (chant) calling forth the Divine Waters from within to be express through our movement. You will connect to the with the Divine essence of Water as a living expression of the Sacredness of Water.

No previous dance experience is required. This is a seated hula, we will only be working with the hands and heart.

This is offered as gift to World Water Year 2021 to bring awareness to the importance of honoring and protecting Water as we embody the essence through sacred movement.

Advancing Climate Security in the Middle East: EcoPeace's “Green Blue Deal” Report

In the Middle East, water is at the center of an environmental crisis. And in the most water scarce region on the planet, conflict and the climate have made a problematic situation even more desperate. EcoPeace Middle East, with its unique alliance of Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli environmentalists, has launched a bold report that provides a road map for regional and international policy makers to meet the looming challenges of climate change.

The new report proposes harnessing the sun and the sea to power region-wide desalinated water and energy security for all. It highlights the need and opportunity to solve Israeli/Palestinian natural water allocations today to achieve water equity. And it proposes climate smart investments and green job development around the Jordan Valley. This sweeping initiative, supported by public awareness and education programs, will engage the public, especially younger generations, to understand the importance of diplomacy in the water and climate debate and as an example of effective conflict resolution and peace building. The report’s recommendations build on the programs and concepts developed and implemented by EcoPeace over the last 26 years.

9:00AM – 10:30AM

Let’s Talk! What Does Meaningful Youth Participation Look Like?

This event will bring together five youth organisers from different parts of the world, who are working to enhance youth engagement in their contexts. They will engage in dialogue with Youth Policy expert, Noella Richard from UNDP.

Youth engagement looks different across the world, and yet there is a common misconception of youth engagement simply being a ‘ceremonial’ act or a tick-box exercise. Young people are often given entry level positions, such as internships or volunteer roles, with limited scope for growth.

We believe that young people are expertly positioned in understanding current and local contexts, and engaging with processes of peacebuilding and grassroots organising to address local and global issues.

With this in mind we ask the question, what does meaningful youth participation look like in our field? And what are the strategies and mechanisms for meaningful youth engagement that we can learn from each other?

We invite you to join this event!

12:00PM – 2:00PM

Crisis of Loneliness Among Young Americans

Recent studies have revealed some truly alarming trends among young Americans: one-third of undergraduates wrestle with some kind of mental health issue, more than one-third of young adults are now disaffiliated with religion, and according to one global health service company, the loneliest generation in America today are between 18-22 years old.

Whereas previous generations might ask, “How should I live?” they are now more likely to ask, “Why should I live?” Where they used to talk about hope and meaning; now they grapple with hopelessness and meaninglessness. And while it may be too early to say for sure, it’s almost certain that almost a year of quarantine and social distancing has only made matters worse. In other words, young Americans are facing a spiritual crisis of loneliness.

Feeding the Future: The Story of the Smallholder Farmers Alliance

A premier showing of a film, and a conversation following the film with Hugh Locke, Timote, and a Timberland Representative on “The Haiti Experiment” Hugh Locke is the President and Co-Founder of the Smallholder Farmer’s Alliance in Haiti.

Smallholder farmers comprise one-third of the world’s population and hold the key to food security and reversing environmental degradation. The film will show the remarkable reforestation of Haiti through the use of trees as “currency” for better quality seeds, equipment and training provided to the smallholder farmers. The farmers plant trees in exchange for these services, and have regenerated cotton production in Haiti, at one time one of the world’s largest exporter of cotton. Hugh will share about the relationship with Timote, an agronomist in Haiti, and the Timberland Company in creating an ongoing success story for the smallholder farmers who were brought together in a cooperative that requires the equal partnership and participation of women.

Seeking UNITY in American Democracy

This Special Plenary Feature of World UNITY Week will bring the insights of key thought-leaders on the vital subject of finding spiritually-based solutions to the current divisions in “The American Experiment” and inspiring a heart-motivated path forward to greater unity.

This is a conversation between Marianne Williamson, a 2020 US Presidential Candidate and author of the 2019 book, A Politics of Love: A Handbook for a New American Revolution, Stephen Dinan, Founder/CEO of The Shift Network and author of 2016 book Sacred America, Sacred World: Fulfilling Our Mission in Service to All, and moderator Eleanor LeCain, speaker, top Policy Advisor to Marianne Williamson and former Massachusetts Assistant Secretary of State. LeCain’s book Breakthrough Solutions includes an introduction by the Dalai Lama.

This one-hour, live plenary session will be on Friday, June 25 at 6:00pm EDT via Zoom video meeting space and shared on hundreds of FaceBook, Twitter and other social media platforms.

The United States is deeply divided, and our democracy is under siege. Big Money has oversized influence on our state and federal government. The Big Lie – asserting falsely that there was election fraud in 2020 – is being used to undermine our duly-elected President and to suppress the rights of citizens to vote. On January 6th, hundreds of Trump supporters and white supremacists invaded the US Congress in a violent insurrection intended to stop the election and to harm legislators. Some politicians are afraid to vote their conscience for fear of retaliation by Trump supporters or donors. Misinformation from the Russians and others is flooding social media, creating confusion about what is really going on.

It is time to bring people together rather than push them apart. It is time to find heart-based solutions to America’s challenges. It is time to unite America, serve the Greater Good of Humanity and respect Our Common Home – Mother Earth. This panel will explore how we can do that.
