A peaceful day comes to a close...
Peace is Powerfull!!
What is PEACE IS POWERFULL? Why does POWERFULL have two “LL’s?
Created by Global Mala NJ co-peace igniter Stacy “Anuttara” Newfeld (above) in 2010, the power of peace starts from within so in essence we are all “full of peace” aka POWERFULL!! Make sure you wear your Global Mala NJ tank or tee to the event. All shirts will be available at many participating yoga studios (see studio page for complete listing) around August 1st and for sale on this site after July 1. Peace is Powerfull!!
How to sign up for free chair or Thai massage on event day
We are grateful to NJ Massage for returning for its fourth year of chair massage at Global Mala NJ. Also we are fortunate to have both Gena Rho-Smith and Anna Winker and team return for mini thai massages for their third Global Mala Event.
SIGN UP REQUIRED FOR ALL CHAIR AND THAI MASSAGE.
There will be a clearly marked sign-up table for both Chair and thai massage beyond the check -in stations. After you sign up, you'll be given a ticket to bring to your respective massage starting at 12:15pm. Chair and Thai massages will be available to event participants beginning at 12:15pm through end of event.
We ask that you kindly consider a donation to be added to the Global Mala charity funds in exchange for your massage. All massage therapists have donated their time so we can all create peace and do our part to help so many others feel some peace. Thank you for your consideration. For more on Chair and Thai massage, see vendor page.
