Kindness. Contemplation. Creation. Connection.
How cool is this? A substance-free New Year’s Eve rave!
I was asked by the amazing, talented, energetic, organized, philanthropic team from Yes+ Vancouver to help promote their 2012 New Year’s Eve party, Buddharave – a substance-free rave – by helping them organize a flag making event.
Ring in the New Year intoxicated by mesmerizing lights, colour, glowsticks, and fusion dance music. What’s even cooler is that they will have 10 minutes of meditation to transition into 2013 mindfully and fully aware. So beautiful!
I LOVE the rave idea! It’s such an awesome idea I just had to help. Their idea was simple: inspired by John Lennon’s song “Imagine” they wanted to create an event for people to express what they imagine for the world in the New Year.
So, we set up tables and art supplies in the Student Union Building at UBC on Nov. 23 and lots of people made “Imagine Flags.” They’ll be so pretty hanging up at Buddharave!
I took some pictures of some of the flags. They’re so colourful and their messages full of hope and promise for the future!
If you don’t have plans already, buy a Buddharave ticket and be the change you want to see in the world!
