Description

Minding my Business for Soul Presents: Meditation for Peace for Philly

You are invited to register for this monumental gathering for peace on the first day of summer June 21st. For the first time ever we will be meditating on the Art Museum Steps. We are taking a peaceful stand as a community for the lives lost and the lives of our youth still living.

Every summer senseless violence takes the precious life of our youth. What we realize is that as a community we are more powerful than ever. The saying is "where focus goes energy flows". We will be uniting and focusing our energy on peace. In 2018 Philadelphia hit 351 homicides which was up 12 percent from 2017. Already this year there have been 151 shooting victims including my 18 year old younger brother whose life was taken on February 21st 2019. Many many many other familes have lost their fathers, sons, brothers, cousins, and friends to senseless shootings. As a city we have to come together to try something else. On June 21st that answer will be mindfulness meditation.

Donations from this gathering will be given to the EMIR Healing Center. E.M.I.R. is a non profit organization that advocates, educates and supports individuals, families and communities that have been impacted by homicide and violent crimes.

Some of the services offered to families:

-Assistance with the completion of the Pennsylvania Victims Compnesation Assistance Program

-Counseling for adults and children

-Grief support groups

-Education about the criminal justice system

-Emergency food supply to immediate family of the victims

and so much more.
