It’s sad but true: here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves, states the FBI. Over 100,000 children in our communities are estimated to be in the sex trade in the US each year. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal activity, according to Polaris Project. The non-profit organization, named after the north star, operates a national hotline, provides training to police, and vital services to victims.
Annual Mahasri Yoga fundraising meditation and yoga events raise money and awareness of selected charities. It is a strong community service and outreach commitment. The charity selected this year is Polaris Project.
The event is a three-hour Mini Meditation Retreat on Tuesday, June 24, 2014, from 9 AM to 12 noon. It will be held at The Fellowship Room, The Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, 113 Cottage Place, Ridgewood, New Jersey. Prior registration ($35) is essential as space is limited. Registration can be done online through the “Donate” button on the home page of the website mahasriyoga.com. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meena Modi, a master yoga and meditation teacher will be conducting the retreat.
