This interactive installation, which comes to Montreal every spring, serves as a giant instrument, allowing passerby to hop on a swing and help create the music.
From the Vimeo page: “Each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation.”
What a beautiful representation of what we can create when we work together!
Today’s video is more than a cute cartoon (though I find it adorable!)–it’s an introduction to a global meditation campaign for social good.
Mindful in May is a one month online meditation campaign delivered to your inbox daily in May, to motivate you to bring a new healthy habit into your life, while raising money to help nearly one billion people on the planet who struggle daily without access to clean, safe drinking water.
Starting on May 1st, participants will commit to regular meditation through a mindfulness program delivered by daily e-newsletters. This will include weekly guided meditation downloads, cutting edge science, prizes, and curated links to inspire your day and keep you connected to the challenge.
While you meditate, your donations and fundraising will bring clean, safe drinking water to thousands of people living in the developing world. Money raised will go to Charity Water to help build clean water wells in the developing world.
Join the mindful revolution by registering for Mindful in May here. Clear mind for you, clean water for others.
Seventeen-year-old Marlana VanHoose has had more than her fair share of challenges. Born blind with human cytomegalovirus, she wasn’t expected to live beyond her first year. She beat those odds, only to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy at two years old–the same time she learned to play the piano.
Now, fifteen years later, she performs for crowds of thousands, inspiring with her angelic voice and indestructible spirit.
This video just completely brightened my day–though it also fogged my vision. It’s a tad embarrassing that I just started crying in the coffee shop where I’m working, but the joy of watching this was well worth it!
