In May 2015, Peace Revolution visited for the first time Honduras in Central America and hosted a series of free meditation workshops for various organizations and for the general public in Tegucigalpa, the capital city. This visit was possible thanks to the support of Yoga’s Garden, our partner organization in the country.
In the words of Emma Nazar, director of Yoga’s Garden: “A proposal of peace in a troubled society is a real revolution. In our culture the term meditation has been until recently a taboo, the presence and activity generated by Peace Revolution in Tegucigalpa was a sign of the need for peace in the country; it is important to present viable alternatives for the general population to manage their lives, their physical and mental health in a moment of chaos.
An invitation was made and was very well received and welcomed by people of different ages, religions and interest. All they expressed satisfaction and wellness, gratitude and desire to have more opportunities and experiences such as these workshops.”
This visit to Honduras was part of the Peace Revolution’s tour in Latin America and the Caribbean that took place between February and May 2015 in 12 countries of the region.
