We at the Om Space have been feeling a certain type of helpless voicelesness in the wake of all the distressing news coming out of Syria, particularly in regard to the children. That, coupled with our garbage disaster in Sri Lanka, we thought it an opportune time to hold a healing meditation to send our good energy out into the world.

The meditation will be led by Uta on Wednesday 19th April at the Om Space at 7.15pm. We are also lucky to have Fiona with us with her Gong.

We would like to invite you to join us to send your energy combined with ours in a gesture of healing and goodwill to all those in need at this time.

Happy Sinhala & Tamil
