29 November, The 8000 Drum Ceremony
On 29 November, despite the shut down of any public spaces for any Civil Society Activity we held 4 sacred gatherings. We started at 7 AM with the Dawn Ceremony joined by many Indigenous People, by the Eifel Tower near the Peace Monument., then in the Theatre Feux de la Ramp, followed by the 8000 Drum Ceremony in the Bois de Vincent and a Meditation for Peace in the Evening. This was a day of miracles and profound transformation. Please see www.8000Drums.org. During the whole time of the COP21, we did meditations and ceremonies of some sort until the day we left. On the 13th Dec. we held peace meditations at each place where the attacks on 13 Nov. were happening, this in order to change the energy to light and peace.
