From February 4-6: His Holiness The Dalai Lama will initiate The Buddha Maitreya. Maitreya is the Buddha of Universal Love, and the goal of this teaching is to bring abundance, peace, and joy to the planet. For this event, taking place at a monastery in India and documented by Elevate Films, The Dalai Lama has called ten thousand monks from around the world.
Of course, most of us can't attend. But you can do your part, thanks to Do As One. This site hosts online "breathing rooms," where people can sign in and join others breathing; current breathing rooms include Laughter Room and Om Room, among others.
"I had a vision of having a billion people breathing together synchronously," says Do As One co-founder Rabia Hayek. "And then I realized with the Internet that I could actually do it." The goal is 10,000 people breathing together at any given time.
For this week's happening, Hayek encourages everyone to log in and join the Universal Breathing Room anytime during the 4th, 5th, or 6th to take part.
We want to know: Do you think breathing together has an effect on the planet?
