WHAT A DAY – WHAT A CELEBRATION OF 12-12-12! We are so inspired by all of you and the different activities of the day, some of which were taking place in almost all countries worldwide and quite some events that were available through internet for a global reach. Altogether, the activities reached tens of thousands of people. They are inspiring examples of interconnectedness, focusing the world’s attention on the possibility of co-creating a world that works for all.

HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE VOICES WE HAVE RECEIVED, from people organizing and participating in the events:
- Monica D. Reynoso Gaute, intinetwork.tv, Ecuador: “In Guayaquil we in Inti Network participated in a major festival coinciding with the day of the Virgin of Guadalupe (Mexico) and her messages of connectedness… The celebration consisted of a wonderful and solemn mass which included mariachis, meditation, chanting, photo displays, prayers, sharing bread under the stars, plus speeches and much joy and celebration… Over 300 people attended. At the office we were very aware of the interconnectedness that we had posted on our website and social networks, etc. Many people were following these events from home (meditation).”
- Marianne Påsse, facilitator of the Be The Change Symposium, Sweden: “We organized a meeting with change agents in our part of Sweden. We started by visiting a local farmer who provides our ecovillage with organic food – a great example of being connected to the land and the community. Afterwards we had a warm and intimate dialogue about interconnectedness and what it means on many levels: To be connected with yourself, others, nature etc… We reflected on our personal contributions to this ‘web of life’, what our next steps will be. It was very enriching to meet with other co-creators and grow together, like a revival of the heart.”
- Valerie, Janis and Jyoti, Center for Sacred Studies, California, USA: “The evening of 12/12/12 World Interconnectedness was truly magical. We started with an intro to what this day signified and listed some of the places in the World that also were having celebrations. We then spent the rest of the evening truly immerse in ‘Culture that revives and heals the human spirit’. We sang songs together from all of the world. We drummed and made music that was powerful beyond measure and everyone could feel it. Then the painting ‘Prayers for the Children of the World’ was unveiled Here is a link. We then had poetry readings that were just perfect for this event and definitely felt divinely orchestrated.”
