Merging our forces for a successful concert

Dear Greenlights,

Get ready for 6 hours of musical environmental excitement and awareness ... carded for Saturday 29th September at the JFK, UWI campus. Greenlight Network will be staging Nature of Sound 2 ... The Concert. This larger version of the concert held at TTW in April 2007 will feature all sixteen artistes from the Nature of Sound CD, as well as guest artistes and selected environmental speakers. This promises to be a one of a kind environmental extravaganza.

A meeting specifically geared toward planning of the concert will be held on Thursday July 19th, 2007 at Greenlight's Headquarters: 21 Lyndon Street, Curepe from 6 p.m. on the dot.

The planning of this event will be smooth and efficient with the merging of many forces. Any Greenlight members who can commit to any of the following are asked to be present and are thanked in advance for their invaluable contribution:
1. Marketing of the concert and the CD (includes developing advertising ideas, artwork, press releases)
2. Liasing with the artistes to ensure that everyone is aware of times, requirements, etc.
3. Locating sponsors and selling them the opportunity to be a part of the venture
4. Designing backdrop and decor for the night
5. Organising sound and lights
6. Sourcing respected environmental speakers to give short (5 min max), impacting environmental messages. Liaising with these speakers to ensure smooth delivery.
7. Liaising with the media - ensuring effective press coverage and organizing radio and television interviews

... and more, to be discussed at the meeting.

Please call Glen at 645-0157 to confirm attendance and give us an idea of your area of interest. We look forward to your involvement!

Thank you for the good vibrations

Thanks to those who attended Greenlight's In Time for You vibrational meditational event on Saturday 30th June. Your presence added to the very special vibes of the evening.

For those of you who could not make it:
Upon entering the room, each person selected a shell from a red mailbox at the door. These shells symbolised vessels which would be filled by the positive vibes of the evening.

The evening began with Natasha Holder giving a short talk on affirmations. She then gave us a few moments of silence to think about what we want in life and form an affirmation to claim this desire. This was followed by the passing around of Elspeth's Tibetan singing bowl. As each person received the bowl, he or she mentally placed his/her affirmation into the bowl and passed it along to the next person. After this, those in attendance lay down on their yoga mats and closed their eyes, relaxing as Elspeth played the Tibetan singing bowl. Its vibrating, ringing tones emanated the energy of everyone's affirmations throughout the room for about 15 minutes. Gradually, the sound of waves and whale calls filled the room, bringing yet another vibration into the space of the relaxed and receptive bodies. As the sound of the waves and whales faded, the singing bowl vibrated one final time with a harmonious, single tone - as if everyone's affirmations had come together as one powerful force. The evening ended with each of us giving and receiving shells with the understanding that the more we give, the more we receive ... and that sometimes, even when we have nothing in our hands, it does not mean we are 'poor'. In fact, there were times when we each had 'no shells' ... and yet we felt extremely full after our vibrational experience.

The remaining shells were offered back to the sea at the close of evening.

Thanks again to those who were present. We look forward to sharing future events with you (and others)!
