a ceremony for the earth

it is the 11th hour...

Let’s face it: we are in a dire place with all of humankind. Just as everyone, you will certainly experience the effects of the pandemic. And it’s not only a pandemic we have to deal with, but also the pandemonium that goes with it: fear, anger, insecurity, anxiety, control, etc.

One of the side-effects of all this is that we have become more polarized: it is us versus them, in many variations. While actually we need to be more united than ever. We are facing huge challenges as humanity and we can only overcome them if we stand together.

One of the major challenges is the extreme loss of animal- and plant species; more than a million species are on the brink of extinction (and in the end we might be one of them…). Connected to the problems of pollution, climate change and the abusive character of our economy on our planet, we are in a dire place.

This is the reason we came up with an idea, in fact we heard a ‘call’: to have a Ceremony for the Earth. One hour of silence, prayer, meditation or any other form of conscious focus that would fit, on November 11th 2021, from 11 – 12 am local time. While 20.000 scientists and politicians focus on better rules and regulations for the climate, we would like to open a gate of silence, prayer and surrender.  Let’s ask for help and inspiration. Deep in our hearts, we know the answers.

On this 11th hour, we invite everyone to join in an hour of silence, prayer, meditation or ceremony to help humankind solve the crisis.

A WORLDWIDE CEREMONY FOR THE EARTH,
November 11th, 11:00-12:00 local time
