Global Meditation for Compassion July 11, 2015, 9AM Pacific Time
Dear Sounds True friend,
On July 11, more than 1,500 people will gather in Carlsbad, California, for an important event that will be live-streamed to 500,000 people in more than 100 countries around the world.
They’re gathering to send a powerful message and shift the collective consciousness of our world toward compassion—a shift that world-renowned expert on mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, is calling the most radical and necessary movement of our time.
The 2015 Chopra Center Global Meditation for Compassion
What Deepak and everyone at the Chopra Center recognize is that there is an epidemic in the West and in the world—a pervasive feeling of loneliness, isolation, and depression.
In the busyness of your daily life, how often do you stop and ask a neighbor how they’re doing? How available are you—even when you want to be—to friends and family members who need support? And how many times have you hurriedly passed by and forgotten a stranger in need?
We live in a world where one in every four people feels that they have no one to talk to if they are in pain or suffering, and a large number feel disconnected from those around them . . . all because we have forgotten that one of the most important and consistent sources of our own happiness and fulfillment is compassion.
If you’re feeling a subtle, yet persistent sense of separateness and yearn for a sense of connectedness instead, you’re not alone.
It’s a restlessness we’re all feeling that Deepak asserts is actually a critical calling to evolve and to rediscover our common truth—that we are all one.
Take a stand for compassion. Join Deepak from wherever you are in the world.
On Saturday, July 11, you can join Deepak and the dynamic, bestselling author who Oprah Winfrey named “a next-generation thought leader,” Gabrielle Bernstein—along with musical guest and humanitarian, Trevor Hall, whose songs have been featured in movies and on television and regularly top the iTunes singer-songwriter charts, and acclaimed CNN en Español anchor, Ismael Cala, for this landmark event.
Deepak will lead a groundbreaking, one-hour conversation about compassion, featuring an exclusive, 15-minute guided meditation and a special musical performance.
There is no charge for you to participate remotely (via streaming video) and even ask questions of Deepak and Gabrielle using social media and the event hashtag #IAMCOMPASSION.

I am compassion. And I’m taking a stand for a kinder, more compassionate world.
The world needs more people who will see suffering and rise up to meet it with kindness and love.
When you join Deepak and Gabrielle for this global online event, you’ll be counted as someone who recognizes that the time for all of us to deepen our compassion is right now.
Be the change.
