Slackro Fest 2008

Taking yoga off the mat in the name of mindfulness, Slacro Fest is the first official merging of yoga slacklining and AcroYoga in the
setting of Williamsburg Brooklyn at McCarren Park (L train to Bedford or L / G to Lorimer stop). Join NYC yoga slackers and local
AcroYoga teachers and experience the yoga practice in an entirely new setting while supporting a fundraiser to help raise awareness
and support children living in extreme poverty in Cambodia. Check out products from our eco-conscious sponsors and learn about
simple ways that you can be more mindful in your daily life.
Come as you are and feel free to bring, friends, family members (especially kids) and pets. We will be located in the park near the baseball
diamonds by the farmer’s market (towards the corner of Driggs and Lorimer). Please bring some food to share and anything else
you like to do outdoors. Rain date on June 7th please check for more details
The Mindfulness Challenge- Based on the karmic management teachings shared by Geshe Michael Roach in The Diamond Cutter: The Buddha on Strategies for
Managing Your Business and Your Life, the Mindfulness Challenge is a project designed to raise awareness and funding for the Cambodian Children's Fund while
educating individuals about simple things that they can do to be more present in their daily lives. The goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of 2008 and produce a paper
mandala of the responses to the question: what’s one little thing that you do in your daily life that’s mindful, that reminds you to be present, and that you would love for
more of your friends to do? more details at (
