Yogis Throughout the World Cross the Borders of their Mats to Raise Consciousness and Funds for Important Causes.


LOS ANGELES — (August 8, 2008) — On September 21-23, the Global Mala Project, whose purpose is to unite the global yoga community, will implement events throughout the world in honor of the United Nations International Day of Peace. Forming a “mala around the earth” through collective practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108, the mission of the Global Mala Project is to raise both funds and consciousness for some of the most pressing issues facing the world today.

Taking its name from the sacred prayer beads called “mala” used in India and Tibet as meditation guides, the Global Mala Project will benefit Trees for the Future, Youth Health Alliance and numerous other charities and projects being supported by local community leaders. Composed of 108 beads, the mala is symbolic of the prayer for peace, hope and charity the Global Mala Project will be sending to the world.

“With the rising threat of Global Warming, the illusion of separateness is dissolving around the world,” said Shiva Rea, world renowned Yoga teacher and catalyst for the Global Mala Project. “Yoga is one of the few common denominators for millions of people around the world; together we are creating a circle around the earth and dedicating our energy to peace.”

The Los Angeles Global Mala Project unites with the Yoga Month awareness campaign and the Yoga Health Festival on September 20-21 on the campus of Loyola Marymount University and will include 108 sun salutations, live music, and fellowship with likeminded yogis interested in creating the peace they wish to experience in the world.
