    DC Global Mala members and fellow yogis join together for 108 Sun Salutations for peace and healing.

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     EyesWideLove came across a large group of people doing yoga in a Washington D.C. park this weekend for the Global Mala Project. Yogis did 108 sun salutations, uniting with the global yoga community to raise awareness of the Fall Equinox and UN International Peace Day and the tenth anniversary of Sept. 11, according to the group's site. 'It was refreshing to watch the power of these folks energies intertwine and worship life. The event was for a time to unite for prayer and celebrate human life,' said EyesWideLove, who was just observing.

    On September 18, 2011, the DC Global Mala did celebrate its fifth birthday. Funds raised are going to support two projects - funding the wellness room at a domestic violence center and providing teacher training in collaboration with a community yoga studio in Palestine.

     

    DC Global Mala Projects intention is to join thousands of planetary rituals that are raising consciousness around the Fall Equinox and UN International Peace Day, and this year a decade of healing since the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
