Cities of Light
Light up the world from your living room
Every month people in living rooms around the world gather to share an hour of silence. Meditating together is like coming home - inside your self and with each other. The harmony that results from these gatherings not only affects you and your friends, but also impacts the world around you. In cities with regular meditation sessions there is measurably less crime and violence and more creativity, flow and a sense of wellbeing.
Every Sunday evening, Tijn and Binkie give an online Cities of Light meditation from 20:00 to 20:40 (CET) that you can join for free via the Facebook page of citiesoflight (Stadsverlichting) and via Tijn's YouTube channel.
Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 08:00 to 08:20 (CET) Tijn and Binkie also do an online morning meditation that you can join on the same channels. Everybody is welcome!
How it works
Culture of Enlightenment
Cities of Light is an initiative to stimulate a culture of enlightenment. To make this happen, we ask people to open up their living rooms for regular meditation sessions, or to visit someone else's home in order to be silent together.
Harmony & Flow
Research has shown that when groups of people meditate together regularly, harmony and flow result. The positive effects that participants create not only affect themselves, but also their surroundings and ultimately the world as a whole.
When & Where
Cities of Light takes place the second Sunday of every month, between 8.00 and 9.00 p.m. and is free of charge. Some living rooms have their own schedules and meditate more frequently.
People enter in silence between 7.45 and 8.00 p.m. Feel free to guide the meditation or sit in silence. After the meditation people can leave in silence or, if you like, you can offer an opportunity to exchange experiences.
