Meditation “flash mob” convenes at Austin capitol building

The Statesman reports on a Meditation Flash Mob, that converged on the State Capital grounds in Austin to promote a message of peace and harmony.

People convened at the Capitol on Sunday afternoon for the first Austin flash mob meditation. They meditated all over the capitol grounds from noon to 1 p.m. using their meditation power to bring positive intentions to the state. Then they moved inside the Capitol and formed a circle in the rotunda and chanted OM for about 20 minutes.

This was the second such event in Austin, and the organizers said in a press release that they would be joined simultaneously by eight other cities around the nation including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cincinnati, OH, Boulder, CO, Asheville, NC, and Phoenix, AZ.

The organizers had predicted that 1,000 people would attend the Austin event. Judging by the photograph above the numbers were much smaller, but this sounds like an excellent event and one that should be emulated elsewhere.
