To say it’s been an exhausting year of politics would be an understatement.
However, as bad as it has seemed recently we must not forget how far we have progressed. It may come as a surprise, but we are currently living in the most peaceful decade in world history. Overall, violence globally is in decline.
We must demonstrate to the world we are coming together –not just as one nation, but as one planet. United together, we inspire hope.
“We Are One Species” is an event rooted in positivity. It is about celebrating our commonalities and our diversity as humans rather than being separated by our differences. The event has been designed for two main purposes:
1. Teach humans peace is possible (and rational to believe in).
2. Remind each other that all human lives are sacred.
If you are planning to attend the event please RSVP, tickets are free!!– but it helps us organize, you’re the best!:
“We Are One Species” is not a political event.
It is an event for ALL people of ALL political standings and ALL beliefs: ALL races, ALL ages, ALL sizes, ALL genders, ALL classes, ALL sexual preferences, ALL religions, and ALL citizens of ALL countries are welcome and wanted.
We believe optimism is a self fulfilling prophecy. +++
“We Are One Species” will begin at 12:00 noon EST at Washington Square park in NYC.
-There will be multiple world renowned environmental activists teaching how we can protect and preserve our planet. There will also be humanitarian speakers on how we can take care of our neglected populations.
-There will be a meditation at 2:00 EST led by one of the top NYC meditation leaders and a sound meditation at 3:30 led by one of the top NYC meditation centers.
-There will be performances by multiple bands (as well as a beautiful harp performance) and multiple short sets by dj’s.
-There will be yoga teachers teaching yoga in different areas of the park.
***Finally at 5:00 we will be doing a silent peace march through the streets of NYC in remembrance of all the people that have been killed from violence. This is to inspire the world that we are going to overcome our differences worldwide this century.
1. What to wear:
The universal achromatic color of peace.
Get creative and put together your favorite futuristic, white, peaceful warrior costume! Think Princess Leia everywhere! 😉
There will be makeup artists to help you get in the full spirit of the event. Feel free to add cool lights to your costume if you’re feeling fancy.
2. What to Bring!:
A. Yourself (most important, bring the positive version)
B: Lots of food! (More than you can eat!)
Bring enough for 3 or 4 people. “We Are One Species” will be a day of abundance. It will be like having a giant group picnic. Share your excess food and meet/connect with all the humans around you.
This is a LEAVE NO TRACE EVENT
–Meaning make sure to bring your own trash bag and take your own garbage home with you (be respectful and don’t put it in the Washington park waste bins). This way we don’t leave any garbage at all in the park. Do your best to have as minimal waste as possible with your food.
**If you want to really feel like Captain Planet please help pick up any trash you see throughout the event and put it in your own trash bag. Also ask people nicely to not leave any waste lying around, but don’t be a jerk! Do it with love!)
C. A black and white picture of someone that has been killed- especially recently.
Children, women, men, anyone of any race. We will look at these pictures before we march to remind ourselves we will create a peaceful future and no longer accept our petty, selfish reasons for war.
D. Home made beautiful signs – but only positive ones.
“Go humanity!” Etc., peace signs, sacred geometry etc.
E. Your talent!
Are you a great singer? Musician? Dancer? Writer? Poet? Performer? Flow artists? Comedian? Person?
Bring your instruments and your equipment and leave your shyness at home. Be part of the celebration! This is about all of us. We want you to bring all those mad skillz and display them! You are unique and we’re happy you exist.
E. Your yoga mat if you want to get your yogi on!
F. Warm blankets!!! Just in case it’s cold.
(If you have white ones especially)
