NAR Centers Are Stepping Up to the Plate with October 24th Environmental Actions for Sukyo Mahikari's Partnership with 350.org!
In the August newsletter, we told you about Sukyo Mahikari's collaboration with 350.org to promote awareness of global climate change and the importance of bringing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere down to 350 parts per million. 350.org is organizing a network of actions around the world highlighting the number 350 so that world leaders will see just how many people want them to sign a strong climate change treaty in December in Copenhagen. Currently, people are planning 350.org actions in almost 150 countries!
 

Sukyo Mahikari centers are excited about doing 350.org activities. As of the date of this newsletter, we have been able to post six environmental activities from across the region on the 350.org map! You can see them at www.350.org by clicking on "Search for an Action Near Me."
  • Chicago: Cleanup Action at North America's Tallest Building

    Sukyo Mahikari youth practitioners are planning an activity on October 24 to promote awareness of 350.org. They plan to create and wear shirts that say "350.org & Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development." They will meet downtown at the Willis Tower, the tallest building in North America, at 10:30 a.m. Half the group will pick up litter and the other half will be giving light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice) to purify the area spiritually. Then they will switch off to give everyone an opportunity to do both activities. They will continue this for about 1.5 hours going to as many areas as they can. They then plan to have lunch by the river. After lunch, they will go to the Sukyo Mahikari Spiritual Development Center in the Chicago area (395 South Sutton Road, Streamwood) and display presentation materials to promote awareness among people who visit the center that day.

  • Los Angeles, Torrance, and Pasadena: Cleanup and Positive Energy at San Clemente Beach

    Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development youth practitioners from Los Angeles, Torrance, and Pasadena will meet from 9-12 to clean up San Clemente beach. We will start by giving light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice) to purify the area spiritually. We will also laugh for 3 minutes and 50 seconds to bring about positivity and good blood circulation. Then we will strive to pick up at least 350 pieces of trash. The following link will demonstrate why it is important to pick up trash, especially plastic trash. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrAShtolieg. In order to purify the earth and ourselves additionally, we will say positive words, such as "Thank you" each time we pick up a piece of trash, so that will become 350 positive vibrations.

  • Atlanta: Climate Awareness Picnic at the Sukyo Mahikari Center for Spiritual Development and Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve

    Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development in Atlanta will host a potluck picnic to raise awareness about the global condition. Guests, including families, are welcome: There will be kids' activities, including drawing pictures and banners about the environment. Lunch is from 12-1pm. In the afternoon, we will walk to nearby Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve, a 28-acre sanctuary for wildlife, encompassing wetlands and forest, along the floodplain of South Peachtree Creek. We will bring the banners, and practitioners will give light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice) to purify the environment spiritually.

  • Beach Cleanup at Ocean Park

    Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development youth practitioners in Puerto Rico are going to clean up the Ocean Park beach area. We will also start by offering prayers of apology for polluting the earth and water and give each other light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice). We will pick up trash and sort what can be recycled from what is non-usable. While doing this, we will give light energy to purify the area spiritually.

  • Tree-Planting with MillionTreesNYC

    Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development youth practitioners in New York are going to help make New York City greener by planting trees as part of MillionTreesNYC. We have planted trees before as part of this program that is now going on for two years, and on October 24, twenty thousand trees will be planted with MillionTreesNYC at 18 sites city-wide! We will be planting trees in Marine Park, the biggest park in Brooklyn, located close to Jamaica Bay. We will share our skills in planting trees with others and we will give light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice) to purify the trees and the area spiritually.

  • Playground Cleanup and Spiritual Purification

    Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development youth practitioners in San Francisco will do a cleanup activity in a playground near the center and we will give light energy (Sukyo Mahikari's spiritual practice) to purify the area spiritually. We will invite interested guests to receive light energy at the center. After lunch, we will reconvene at the Ferry Building for a massive rally by 350.org and Greenpeace at Embarcadero along with other organizations.
Please keep sending in your activities and we'll post them on the map! Photos from these events will all show a big "350" and "Sukyo Mahikari" and will be shown on the giant screens in Times Square in front of news cameras to show world leaders how many people around the world want them to take strong action on protecting the earth's climate. We're proud that our centers, especially the Youth Groups, are doing so much for this important partnership and issue.
