Global Solstice Meditation

Telesummit

June 20, 2013 - 9-10.30AM PT/4-5.30PM GMT

Please join the Gaiafield Project and Summer of Peace in a synchronized global meditation to celebrate the Earth Treasure Vase Healing Project and to help activate the global grid laid down by this remarkable project.
For 23 years, Cynthia Jurs and the Earth Treasure Vase Healing Project have brought healing and protection to the Earth by filling consecrated clay vessels with prayers and offerings, and ceremonially burying them in the Earth in collaboration with indigenous elders, young activists and grassroots leaders in places where healing and protection are most needed around the planet. The final pilgrimage to bury the last vase will occur in Australia in June 2013. The burial of this vase in Australia will mark the completion of a global mandala seeded all over the planet to bring healing and protection to the Earth.  For more information click here
