BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2015
About The Great 108: Drawing on the philosophical significance of the number 108, the TogetherYoga count down to the YMCA's Annual Campaign event grew out of a desire to reconcile the painful division wrought by the tragic events of September 11th. Devoting our daily practice to promoting peace and unity offers a chance to send healing energy to everyone divided by violence and conflict. The 108 Days of Peace and Practice stems from the belief that world peace starts with inner peace and that, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama teaches:
"We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves."
