45 Youth gathered from over 10 different countries packed on a plane to Izmir, or otherwise known as… REALIZE TURKEY!
We had a short rest upon arrival in Izmir, and then took a bus to the nearby city of Kusadasi. Â When we got there, we couldn’t believe our eyes – we were standing in front of our hotel, right on the edge of the beautiful Agean Sea. Â There really is nothing like Turkish hospitality.
Pretty soon, we were on our way to a large shopping center where we played Qawwalis inside. Â We taught meditation in such a informal way- first we would play a few songs, and then when a large crowd was present, one of us would get up and introduce Sahaj and lead a short meditation. Â We did this for a few hours, probably giving a couple hundred realizations.
After dinner, we went back to the hotel and went for a midnight footsoak/swim until we were too tired to keep our eyes open.
