First Sun 2015


Join us at 5.15am sharp to welcome 2015 with a transformative, family-friendly, sunrise gathering at the Peace Pole by Main Beach.

SoulStreet - waves orangeAs we come together to sow the seeds for the new year, Katie Connolly will read out an intention for community and global peace and play the crystal bowls to lead us into silent meditation. Then, because all seeds need both water and sunlight to grow, as the first rays of the sun grace our shores, Avishai Bernatan will offer a Sound Shower sending resonant, healing sound waves over and through us as we focus on our own individual intentions for the year ahead.

And, as every intention needs action to bring it into being, we invite you to join us for QiGong with Shirsha-Marie or Yoga with Claire Evans to take those thoughts and embed them in your bodies through rejuvenating movement.

Finally, in the tradition of Tibetan prayer flags, all are welcome to write or draw their intentions on a New Year’s prayer flag. These will be strung up on the trees in the park so that your wishes for the year will be blown by the wind to spread goodwill and compassion into our community and beyond, bringing benefit to all.

We look forward to joining you, your family and friends for a peaceable and mindful start to 2015. Please spread the word.
Bring a yoga mat and cushion or blanket to sit on, a water bottle, and then enjoy breakfast after the gathering at the cafes on Bay St opposite the surf club.
