Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian ritual of forgiveness. Its roots are believed to be from Atlantis, Lemuria, and High Vedic Culture. It stems from the understanding that we are all connected in the field of consciousness. Although we identify as individuals, we are also part of a whole, a oneness and as such we each affect each other close and far. Knowing that we affect each other, we can influence problems in our lives and in the world by healing the corresponding frequency of energy within us. Ho’oponopono makes this possible by utilizing five simple but powerful sentences. Each phrase creates a certain pathway towards evolution and freedom from all that doesn’t serve us.

 

Spiritual message | Ho’oponopono | Meditation

Event will also be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
Join on zoom 


Kindly circulate among your contacts and friends.

 

Looking forward to being together again.

BK UN is Inviting youths for the 3rd "Breathe Peace" Event: "Youth, Innovation, Fun" August 6 @ 5 pm EDT

29 July 2021

Dear Friends,

'Breathe Peace this summer' 3rd. episode celebrates Youth:
"Youth, Innovation, Fun".

Friday, August 6 @ 5:00 - 5:30 pm EST.

"Youths are the present, the saviors of the future!!"

Young minds are some of the most creative thinkers of today. Youths have a certain ingenuity and imagination that come with the innocence they possess which allows for this creativity. As internet and social media continue to grow, kids are getting exposed to global issues, like climate change, awakening the passion to create change. With their fresh, innovative minds, many youths start initiatives and projects to address these concerns. Their unique ideas also provide space for fun and enjoyment, something many adults overlook and find unimportant. More often than not, it is the excitement and amusement in these ideas that make them distinctive, yet productive.

Conversation between Shivani Dayal, Youth Representative of the BK at the UN, and Rev. Ryan Campbell, Christian Youth Association

Event will also be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube.

Kindly circulate among your contacts and friends.

Looking forward to being together again.

Reminder: Saturday, June 19, 2021 - UN Yoga Day Event @ 4:30 pm EST

18 June 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are happy to have Deepak Chopra, MD as one of our special guest speakers in celebrating Yoga Day 2021, along with special guest, Karuna, Founder, Light on Kundalini. We warmly invite you to join us.

 

 

Saturday, June 19 @ 4:30-6:00pm EST

The pandemic has touched us all through its devastating economic and social impacts. There has been a profound impact on our physical and psychological health. It has awakened underlying conditions which have been dormant and preceipitated a spiritual crisis. This has left many contemplating the meaning of life, our purpose, and what is truly important. The values and techniques of Yoga provide us with tools we need to cope. Yoga’s ancient practices help us attain healing, health and harmony. We now may choose what we reintroduce into our lives, how we shape our reality and how we better prepare for unexpected challenges. Creating a sacred space 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 to embrace our inner nature, our heartfelt connection, and the power of hope.

They will also be taught fun poses with a focus on respect for nature and animals, allowing them to connect with their own instincts which becomes a form of stress release. A final breathing exercise to calm the body down to a quieter state with a silence-time exercise to give the mind a sense of peace and love, leaving the kids' mind and body in a better state of calmness.
