Who we are
Let’s Meditate is organized by experienced meditators who have been practicing for decades under the direct teachings of the spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy. Together we have given meditation classes or instruction to thousands of people in many countries around the world.
As regular practicing meditators, we have realized the value of gathering together to meditate together on a regular basis, and we want to share the inspiration of collective meditation with others. When people come together to meditate in a group, there is a special synergy that makes the meditation easier and deeper, which can lead to profound personal insights and a brighter way of seeing and experiencing the world. We have certainly felt it, and we want to offer you an opportunity to have a deeper experience of peace and inspiration.
One more thing: we have come to know that meditation is more than just feeling peaceful. Meditation also opens up doors to your own hidden capacities and creativity. We have all felt it in sports, creative fields and simply the inspiration to selflessly serve the world around us. We hope that you too will tap into the wellspring that resides deep inside you, so that you can access it and share it with the world.
Let’s Meditate was created by:
Devashishu Torpy lives in London, UK, and helps to organize the Great Britain Peace Run (formerly the World Harmony Run) and also organises races for the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team. He has been meditating for over 35 years. “My first meeting with my Guru was on a street in London when I was 8 years old. There, in a minute of silence, he conveyed an overwhelming abundance of love and joy that I have never forgotten. At the time I didn’t know it was meditation, but it sowed the seed, and 2 years later (at age 10!) I began my daily practice.” He is constantly traveling the world offering free meditation workshops.
Homagni Baptista has produced Songs of the Soul concerts worldwide and has practiced meditation for over 20 years. It was Homagni that first started us all talking about the idea of Let’s Meditate, fusing a music concert with a meditation class. It produced a hybrid where live music is featured with limited narration of basic meditation instruction and guidance, allowing for the audience to sit back and be taken on a journey inward. Originally from Australia, Homagni has traveled the world and has also run in many of the countries as part of the Peace Run, a global torch relay for peace.
Natabara Rollosson has meditated for 25 years and has taught meditation in countries around the world. He co-directed and produced the award-winning short documentary Challenging Impossibility about athletics and spirituality, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and later appeared in over 70 film festivals around the world. He has contributed to PSAs and documentaries including Angelina Jolie’s A Place in Time. Natabara’s most recent invitation to speak was for the New York University Society of Undergraduate Neuroscience where he presented for students and faculty under the theme Meditation and Neuro-Spirituality. Natabara produces large events for the United Nations in locations around the world with special focus on the environment, climate change and sustainable energy.
