I hope you’re doing well in our challenging times. I also hope that you feel – as so many do – how the awareness of being in our community brings strength and hope.
This year’s John Main Seminar is hosted online by WCCM Mexico, from 19 to 22 October. I think you will agree that the theme – “One Heart, One Hope – Indigenous Wisdom and the Future of Humanity” – could not be more timely.
It’s the first time the Seminar has been all online and so we’ve been working hard to publicise it and ensure we can share this hope-full event as widely as possible. Please help me and our team to do this. We are using all WCCM channels, social media, emails and the main website. However, it will be essential – and be a great boost to all our efforts – if you can encourage your community members to register for the Seminar, perhaps suggesting that they form small groups to watch it together and discuss it afterwards.
I am happy to help if you need advice in doing this. But you can use email, WhatsApp, social media and of course add a prominent banner to your national website or blog. One important thing to tell your community is that because of different time zones not all participants will join each live session, but video recordings accessible to registered JMS participants will be viewable online for one month after the live transmission.
To help you spread this word, we’ve put together a publicity pack which includes a Facebook cover, images you can use on your social media, and a list of all the resources we’ve published so far about this very important moment in how the WCCM brings a contemplative perspective to our crisis today.
You can find all these resources: HERE
Please help me and our very dedicated Mexican community spread the word about JMS 2020 and in this way bring deeper hope to our world.
Thank you. Stay well and please do what you can to help us .
