After sponsoring Yoga Festival by the Sea's beautiful sand mandala last year in Asbury Park, GladSoles is returning to the Newark location for this year's peace event. This is the 3rd year in a row that we will be supporting the mission of the Global Mala Project to raise both funds and consciousness for some of the most pressing issues facing the world today.
Since its inception, this annual event has helped so many wonderful causes around the world from AIDS, War, Poverty, Environment, Children, Education and more. This year, 70% of proceeds from the event go to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund NJ! Global Mala NJ has become the largest Global Mala event in the world.
The purpose of the Global Mala is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or yoga approach to form a "mala around the earth" through collective practices upon the sacred cycle of 108.
Global Mala coincides with UN’s International Day of PEACE as well as the Fall Equinox. If each of us imagines and believes in peace and if we each do our part, no matter how big or small, we will all see meaningful differences and together we will manifest peace. Peace is Powerful!
