hammocktime invites WOMADelaide guests to pause, disconnect from technology and reconnect to yourself and your environment by spending twenty minutes in a hammock.
Your first few minutes will be spent in a gentle guided meditation, followed by ten minutes of private pause.
“Take a moment to locate yourself. Not just at WOMADelaide, but right here, right now.
In this hammock. In this tree. In this moment”.
The form of meditation we use to get you in the right mood is inspired by British philosopher, Alan Watts, who says, “The art of meditation is the art of getting in touch with reality… by going out of your mind, you come to your senses“.
During your pause we ask you to consider your own reality and come up with one word that responds to each of the following questions:
- What would make your vision of the world a better place?
- What personal action could you take that would lead to that change?
- What collective action could we take that would lead to that change?
All answers will be collected at the end of each session and presented online in datavisual form.
You will find us in The Pines area near the Healing Village, just look for #homeJames, the beautiful big red bus.
