America Meditates is the largest ever group meditation event to take place in the United States. On the 24th of July, over 20,000 people will meditate together in Denver, CO, including concurrent remote events at 100 cities around the country. SKY@UIUC (RSO) is facilitating the local event in Urbana-Champaign. The primary goal of this event is to raise awareness about mental health and to launch a campaign to create a culture of wellness, mental fitness, and peace. This is especially relevant to address the mental health issues of depression, violence, and drug abuse. Everyone in our society is in some way affected by these issues. We need a tangible and scalable solution to combat them and bring peace and coherence. Several dignitaries will grace the occasion and provide valuable insights. Meditation led by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, world-renowned humanitarian, will be streamed live from Denver. RSVP, participate and bring your friends and family! *Free and open to all*
