Heartfulness NJ and NYC celebrated Independence Day by marching in New York City’s Annual India Day Parade on Sunday with guest of honor, Omi Vaidya, star of the popular Bollywood film, 3 Idiots!
Representing @heartfulness and our upcoming Dhyanotsav event, over 60 volunteers supported both a float in the parade and an information booth, where visitors could learn more about Dhyanotsav and the Heartfulness practice. Our float was manned by our young Heartfulness advocates, who waved flags and threw goodies out to bystanders, while many of our other volunteers marched down Madison Ave carrying signs and passing out informational flyers about the event.
If they weren’t watching the parade, people were able to visit our informational booth to meditate with a trainer, get more information about the Heartfulness practice, and register for Dhyanotsav. A few of our Heartfulness trainers had the opportunity to be interviewed by TV Asia.
Thank you to Medly Pharmacy for their generous support of the float! A huge shoutout to Omi Vaidya for joining us on the float and for representing Heartfulness Meditation! He, and the many volunteers at the parade, will be at Dhynaotsav: a celebration of meditation on Saturday, September 7th at 3PM at the New Jersey Performing Art Center in Newark, NJ! The link to register for this FREE event is in our bio — see you there!
