A decade ago a word mediation was only familiar to some interested people. Today in the West mediation is becoming a mainstream. In the Middle East mediation as such was mainly introduced by Sufis and they has been always in minority.
Some friends of mine have taken a great initiative to tour Lebanon and spread the meditation experience there. Please read the message below und suport if you like the idea! Thanks 🙂
In September of 2011 a group of 30 young people from over 5 countries are going to visit the country of Lebanon to conduct a three week long cultural and meditation tour. This group of youth acts on behalf of our independent non-governmental youth-led organization called Meditate to Regenerate. The organization is aimed at facilitating the teaching of meditation across the globe in order to aid the world-wide effort achieve of the UN Millenium Goals.
Our organization focuses specifically on the following goals:
Universal Primary Education
Improved Maternal Health
Reducing Child Mortality Rates
A Global Partnership Towards Development
Meditate to Regenerate carries out activities to enable people live healthier lives both physically and emotionally, to reduce stress and eliminate anger, all by using simple but powerful meditation techniques.
Meditate to Regenerate promotes cultural integration, tolerance and peace regardless of belonging to any religion, race or sex. This organization embodies all the principles it promotes and works to unite people from different countries across the globe in their efforts to make the world better.

The tour in Lebanon will consist of various types of programs including: both in-door and out-door cultural performances, concerts for local orphanages in Beirut, and in Palestinian refugee camps. We will be also doing humanitarian volunteer work in collaboration with local NGOs in Lebanon. The main aim of the Tour is to teach the unique method of meditation which is proved free to help maintain physical and emotional balance and to serve for the overall betterment of a personality, thus helping achieve goals mentioned above.
