Day Retreat by Urban Retreat Lab
aka Ulrika Wedin and Rachel Fuller
Taking Human Kindness Out onto the Streets of Stockholm
Prepare for election day!
On the day before election day when Sweden is full of raised voices, opinions on right and wrong, arguing, us against them. Let's take radical action together. Standing up for everyone's deep wish to have a good life.
The heart is the centre of the breathing body.
The breath is the center of life.
The city is pumping day and night, through life and death.
Let us do silent activism - a walking meditation through the city, our hearts meeting other hearts.
The whole city a vibrant heart.
Starting at the studio in Blåsut we'll be taking the meditation out onto the streets of Stockholm.
'What is the appropriate behaviour for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What is the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?'
- Leonard Cohen
Right now some of the richest people in the world are paying a lot of money to some of the most 'intelligent' people in the world, to work out how to get you to believe things that simply aren't true.
What things? That you are not good enough. That you don’t have enough. That others are a threat. That difference is dangerous. That boundaries exist and are real, between countries, between people. That there is not enough to go around.
