You decide how you will honor the cause of your choice, through motion. We especially invite you to experience the edge of your endurance, as that is what it will take to heal our planet, and affect those who are suffering...enduring while sustaining vision;Allow compassion and passion to motivate your movement, for your heartbreak, for the thing that keeps you up at night… Your own personal offering of the METTA to the dark places that reside within this world and in ourselves.For more information, or the opportunity to create a special music set for any portion of this event, please contact Andrea Bell at m

Come for these structured happenings, and/or at any point in the 24 hours that is Tuesday and bring your vision into motion!
I have a vision, that of all beings on the planet, knowing a life of peace and Joy, and no harm from human hands. I believe if we all really knew,from a heart level as well as mind, what horror goes unseen/unheard every second of the day to our animal kingdom, we would change our relationship with ourselves, our food, our planet, non-human animals and each other.
I believe that if we truly knew better we would do better.
I believe in the power of prayer and its exponential power when harnessed with movement and ritual. I believe in the power of love to transform and I believe in the power of human will,vision and choice and the intrinsic need for justice, beauty and truth.
This is what MAM represents to me.
Appropriate for Pioneer Square as it is the heart of the city, and it is the heart of mankind that I desire to penetrate and catalyse.
