Small Life, Slow Life: That Time I Meditated in the Pitch Dark with 60 People. {#unpluggedambush}

I was so honored to spend the last two months working on an amazing event in collaboration with lululemon athletica. The cause is #unpluggedambush, a multi-tiered movement to bring meditation to those who need it in a fresh, inspiring, happiness-inducing way.

On October 23rd, sixty of us gathered under the stars in Franklin Canyon Park (which is right in the middle of Studio City) with no electricity of any kind to unplug + reconnect.

We were led through a mantra-based meditation by Ambassador Laura Conley, given adjustments by Ambassador Joe Kara, and finally were immersed in an otherworldly sound bath by Ossie Mair.

Usually if I work on an event, I’m running around like a crazy person filled with adrenaline. But even I felt rejuvenated under the starlight, listening to Laura’s soothing words. I’ve been to a lot of really amazing events during my time with lululemon, but this one easily tops my list. If you would have driven me to Franklin Canyon Park blindfolded, I would have never guessed we were in Los Angeles! Such a beautiful space and all we heard were crickets and owls (and the occasional cute duck quack).

If you’re thinking that these are excellent photos, you’d be right. All photos by Cecily Breeding (who also took my wedding photos)!
