It's that time of year again!!! I'm hosting this from the FA Facebook page in the event the link doesn't work- that's how you can find it to coordinate with others, but I'll try to keep the running log of open hours here.

Every year since 2010 we've tried to make this event happen. The goal is to get at least 24 people that can take up an hour each and meditate during that hour, and symbolically "pass" the meditation on to the next meditating member of the team. If we get more than 24 people we can further divide the time for less time. Meditations can be done in the form you best connect with (prayer, mantra, dance, cleaning, martial arts, etc).
Last year we started theming the meditations. This years meditation focus will be on healing our worlds nations. 2016 brought about discussions wroth with strife across the world. You can focus on healing the issues that have wreaked havoc on you this year (the change begins with self philosophy) or on a more outward approach (healing people around you/the world). It's up to you. We have never had a full 24 people do this- but I'm hopeful one of these years it will happen. Can we make 2016-2017 our first time?

The times listed are GMT, it's based on when the earth itself begins 1 Jan 2017, as the first time zone is the Line Islands in the Pacific. Let's make this a success. :)

Sorry, but I'm not entirely sure if I got You correct?
Do You mean the people would start on:
- the 31st of December 2016 at 1000 o'clock (GMT)
and finish on:
- the 1st of January 2017 at 1000 o'clock (GMT)
Or should the start be on the 1st of January and last till the 2nd of January?

The relay starts at 1000 GMT on 31 December. But individuals will each take an hour within that time frame. So Metus actually went with the time midnight begins in his time zone (which is Mountain Time), when I converted the time stamp it came out to 0700 1 January 2017.

But the reason behind the times looking crazy, is because the first time zone is in the Pacific (that's how Japan can be about a day ahead of us despite Universal Time being calculated at the Greenwich Mean Time (also known as Universal Time). Th headache of trying to base things off of Kiribata is ridiculous. I actually have to go look up all this information every year because to make sure I've got it right.

Many thanks for the explanation. Now it is easier for me to understand it and I will check if I can take a time slot. If so, it is likely to be the one at 0600 as it would be my usual morning meditation time and would be the first meditation for me in the New Year. But please let me check that first before I sign up for it. ;)

Okay, as said before, I would like to take the slot from 0600 - 0700 as it is my usual morning training routine time and I will adjust it to meet this years topic of healing. :meditate

So cool to see this again! Mad props to everyone who is making it happen!

I can probably dig those 0800-1100 hours, as I will be getting off an airplane around then and can get home quickly (45 minutes) and get squared away. I have a feeling I'll need some space to decompress after this trip! I'll be in touch on FB Ally ;)
