Occupy The Present Moment
Meditation is an excellent foundation for social action. The intention of the Occupy the Present Moment zone is to co-create an intention and practice of mindfulness at the Occupy Vancouver protest. By cultivating attention in the present moment, we extend kindness and compassion to ourselves and to those around us. Doing so, we work towards destroying the foundations of greed, hatred, and ignorance.
Perhaps this will be your main form of liberatory activity at Occupy Vancouver, or perhaps it can serve as a source of refreshment and renewal for other actions that you are taking on a drop-in basis.
All traditions and levels of experience are welcome - we ask simply that everyone practice with respect and kindness.
