Please join Jason Patrick, a.k.a. Bearded Yogi, in a celebration of epic proportions at The Breslin’s Liberty Hall, at the Ace Hotel on February 15-16. Two days of transformational yoga, connecting with ourselves and other remarkable people, gourmet food, artisanal cocktails, live performance, celebrity guest speakers, dancing, and much more. Let Jason and his list of sponsors and friends take you out for a weekend of celebrating the meaning of karma yoga, or selfless giving. The event will be a lavish display of appreciation for your own gift, the mere price of registering to attend Big Love Weekend.
BIG LOVE has been lovingly curated to spotlight God’s Love We Deliver (God’s Love) and help this amazing non-sectarian organization cook and deliver 10,000 nutritious meals to individuals living with life-altering illness. Initially an HIV/AIDS service organization, today God’s Love is the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutritional counseling for people living with over 200 diagnosed severe illnesses. Meals are tailored for individual clients, cooked, and delivered to them, their families, and caregivers free of charge for over 28 years, without ever having a waiting list.
JOIN NOW to purchase your ticket for BIG LOVE WEEKEND, then invite your loved ones to share in the fun, and in the cycle of good karma yoga. Let's make this Valentine's weekend about real love. What better way to love than to give? Collectively, we can easily raise our fundraising goal of $100,000, and supply 10,000 meals.
