On June 6, the Great Hill in New York’s Central Park was the site of Tricycle’s Fifth Annual Change Your Mind Day, graciously sponsored this year by the Henry Luce Foundation. On a crystal-clear, breezy Saturday, the crowds sat in contemplative silence on blankets and zafus while teachers from many different traditions led guided meditations. The day began with Michele Laporte striking a large brass gong 108 times.
