Earth Vigil, an initiative of the Rochester Zen Center in Upstate NY, is planning a large meditation presence to take place before, during, and after the People's Climate March itself. We would like to warmly invite you to join us in bearing witness to the climate crisis by sitting in silent meditation together.
We will begin on Saturday afternoon, September 20. The location is Central Park, right along 59th St between 7th and 8th Avenue. We will keep up the vigil (possibly overnight, maybe not) until some time after the march has ended on Sunday, September 21.
People are welcome to come and go as they please. Bring any meditation equipment that you'd like, and eco-friendly bubble wrap and inflatable beach balls will be available to serve as mat and cushion for those that need them.
