ImageIn the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal of the murder of Trayvon Martin, Zenyu will host a special Healing Ceremony and Meditation in honor of Trayvon. This special Healing Ceremony will be open to all members of our communities and will be held on Monday, July 22nd, from 7:00-9:00pm at Zenyu.  Doors will open at 6:30pm.

It is easy to feel hopeless and dejected in these dark times. Now more than ever, we need each other. Let us come together as Beloved Community to mourn, to heal, and to send out our most loving intentions to Trayvon’s family and all young people of color living daily with racism and violence. Let us express our outrage, let us call out to the Power of the Universe for healing justice.

Please join us for this special evening of meditation, encouragement and rebuilding of strength.  Christine and April will guide us through a grieving and healing ceremony, and the amazing artist-teachers, Christa Bell and Rebekka Goldsmith, will lead us in powerful singing throughout the evening.  Suggested donation is $5-20.  All proceeds will go directly to the Justice for Travyon Martin Foundation and to the NAACP for their work in building a civil rights case against Zimmerman.

If you haven’t already done so, please sign this petition urging the Department of Justice to file civil rights charges against Zimmerman, a man who stalked and murdered a black child: http://www.naacp.org/DOJ-petition-FB
