Many events are being held by partners of the International Brain Education Association’s (IBREA) in different parts of the U.S. around Earth Day, which this year is April 22nd. Two of the largest are the ‘Meditate and Make a Difference’ Earth Awareness Campaign and the Earth Citizen Walk.
‘Meditate and Make a Difference’ Earth Awareness Campaign
From April 8th to April 22nd, Dahn Yoga Foundation is hosting a ‘Meditate and Make a Difference’ Earth Awareness Campaign that is co-sponsored by Dahn Yoga & Health, Inc., Body & Brain centers, and LifeParticleTV.com. Dahn Yoga Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity that believes it can help people take more significant action for the Earth through meditation. It will direct donations to IBREA and EarthShare New York. Donors will be eligible to receive a complimentary 1-year PLUS Membership to LifeParticle TV.
As part of this campaign, Ilchi Lee will give a live teleseminar to LifeParticle TV PLUS Members on Thursday, April 19th at 8 PM EDT. He will talk about earth awareness and will guide listeners in an earth meditation. Listeners will be able to ask Ilchi Lee questions through twitter by adding the hashtag #earthdaymeditation to their posts. Lee will answer a few select questions during the teleseminar. A link will be provided on the main page of LifeParticleTV.com directing listeners to the broadcast.
The teleseminar will be rebroadcast on the 19th at 8 PM in the U.S. Central, Mountain, and Pacific time zones. It will be available on demand on the site as well on April 21st.
Guided meditations based on Ilchi Lee’s teachings have been uploaded once a week during the campaign on LifeParticle TV. Individual Dahn Yoga and Body & Brain Centers will host Earth Day parties during the final days of the campaign and are actively seeking donations. Interested people can find out if a center near them is hosting an event by visiting www.dahnyoga.com or www.bodynbrain.com and calling a specific center.

New York Donations will be raised for IBREA’s Brain Education project in El Salvador, where IBREA began teaching Brain Education at a school in the Centro Escolar Distrito Italia in San Salvador. In addition to the BE classes, IBREA is fulfilling a request of the school to build a swimming pool on the site.
Brain Education was born with a big purpose, a huge dream. By awakening to the value of our brain and working towards actualizing that value, we become aware of what our human nature is really like. We realize that we have a desire to be beneficial to all life. Immediately then, we start to take action to actualize that awakening. That is the Earth Citizen spirit. Brain Education is a methodological tool to help raise 100 million Earth Citizens in 100 countries around the world.
