the project

This August and September, we will host a house on Governors Island. Each weekend the house will feature a local health and wellness practioner who is donating their services.  From yoga to meditation, vegetarian cooking to pilates and lectures on staying healthy and disease free - if it is health and wellness focused, we will feature it. We believe health and wellness should be available to all incomes and should not be a condition only available to those who can afford it.  Therefore all programming at the LR house will be free and donation based.  Give what you can and come as you are.  All are welcome and all are equal.

the steps

Our house is all set.  The donations used will be to pay for a weekend assistant to help facilitate and keep the house open from 10-7pm daily Saturday and Sunday.  Money will also be used to pay for simple cushions to lay on in the meditation room - which will feature the healing sounds of the Gamelatron. Additional funds will help offset the costs of food  and water for the closing day vegetarian celebration - an open house celebrating the end of season.

why we're doing it

We believe that by raising ones consciousness is how the world will experience equality, respect and health.  Love Revolution shares these tools with all who are interested - free of charge.

In my own life yoga, meditation and eating with intent and health has deeply changed my life.  A world of peace in love is not possible when people are riddled with disease and poverty and no means to receive alternative care.  By caring for oneself and feeling good inside, you are able to spread good outside and not be held down by the negative beliefs you were told by others, society or yourself.

Love Revolution provides health and healing for all - no matter what the income or experience - you just have to show up. We are NYC based and our events are local and here to serve our community at large.
