AIA is the American Institute of Architects.


During the LIVE ceremony, AIA will announce the winning films.
We are hoping to receive the “AIA 2020 People Choice Award”, as we got the most votes with 25274 votes..
When: Wednesday 10/21, 6PM EDT. 
Register to find out if we won! You won’t want to miss out.


We are hoping that everyone, who was connected to the film campaign in the last few weeks, will join us in celebration. 
When: Sunday 10/25, 2PM EDT. 
Please register with Zoom to the event prior to 10/25. 

Program will include:
•Musical and spoken word performances
•Visual art
•Update on the HVP Sala construction
•Celebration of our global achievement of getting 25,274 votes with 110,182 views of our film in just a few weeks.  
•An update on our GFM campaign to raise funds to build the foundation and dome of the Sala. We’ve done well and only need $20,000. We are so close!

The fundraising portion to raise $20,000 is simple, and we are proposing to ask our supporters to help us close the funding gap in several ways:

1) Pledge $1,000, a 50% match to the AIA challenge
2) Pledge $500, a 25% match to the AIA challenge
3) Pledge to conduct a workshop on Asking, coordinated by HVP
4) Pledge to do a daily Asking in support of HVP for the next 3 weeks

If you would like to participate in our fundraising, we suggest any Askings, workshops or collection of funds can be coordinated by country or in groups of people from each park/region. 

Please join us for a celebration of “Beacon of Light!”  

Silo’s Message in Queens/NYC remember to vote… and now feel part of the project.

SPANISH: En las ultimas 6 semanas después de cada una de nuestras una o dos reuniones semanales acordamos votar por el video A Beacon of Light in times of Crisis

Durante todos los días en nuestro grupo de whastApp recordamos votar en cadena y multiples veces durante todos los dias y motivar a nuestros amigos y familia para votar en grupo también.

Ha sido muy interesante ver que muchas de las personas a nuestro alrededor al ver el video y votar una o varias veces ahora se sienten parte del proyecto, de la Sala de meditación y ven la importancia de nuestro proyecto para el mundo actual.

ENGLISH: In the last 6 weeks after each of our one or two weekly meetings we agreed to vote for the video A Beacon of Light in times of Crisis

During every day in our WhatsApp group we remember to vote in chain and multiple times every day and motivate our friends and family to vote in group as well.

It has been very interesting to see that many of the people around us, watching the video and voting one or several times, now feel part of the project, of the Meditation Room and see the importance of our project for today’s world.
