Making it a World Meditation Day to remember

On Tuesday 21st May, we teamed up with Unify to celebrate World Meditation Day 2019 with a pair of guided meditation sessions like nobody has ever seen before.

Our founder Will Williams led two live sessions from different continents, starting at Searcy's at the Gherkin in London at 8:30am (GMT) and concluding in Vancouver, where the second session took place at The Museum of Anthropology at 8:30pm (PDT), a whole 20 hours after his day began!

The events were broadcast to a global community of over 1.7 million people on social media, with a 360 degree stream capturing every moment.

After the event, a delighted Will said: “This year's World Meditation Day events felt like a raging success.

“To arrive at the top of the Gherkin and see all over London, with blue skies in all directions and a room full of peeps eager to try the meditation is a memory that we will all remember for a long time to come. And to have the good people of Unify tune in and join us felt incredibly special.

“Having completed the first leg of the day, I then jumped on a plane to Vancouver and went to the Museum of Anthropology to deliver a second guided meditation. The room here was equally epic, with a much more exotic vibe, indigenous artefacts all around us and the setting sun shining in as the world tuned in to join us.

“The events themselves felt very different, and yet we all came together and celebrated our common humanity in a way that felt so empowering and connected, and this felt particularly marked in the context of current affairs.

“It was also so beautiful that it didn't matter whether you were novice or advanced, we all meditated together as one and shared in something profound, illuminating and thoroughly uplifting.”

We brought together a worldwide community of like-minded souls and inspired them to be a part of one of the biggest global meditations there has ever been!
