Hello everyone! It is very exciting - we are developing the prototype for Global Om - it is sooo cool to see this take one step closer to seeing this app come into existence. And you are helping! Our target funding amount has grown since our objective has developed to the next phase. If you can contribute - thanks!
AND we are seeking something else from you - we want your VOICE! We are looking for OMs. We need a whole bunch of Om audio files for the prototype development and testing.
All you need to do is record up to 10 individual Oms, each Om having its own audio file - from intake of breath - through the Om and full expiration of breath. That would be one audio file.
Please consider making as many as you can and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or just contact us there and we will find a way/place to have them uploaded).
ALSO - we are continuing to hold Global Om 108 for Peace meditations. We are holding one this coming Sunday in Reston VA at Beloved Yoga at 6:45pm, and we will be holding #GO108 meditations as part of other programs on December 21st and 22nd - the Winter Solstice and End/Dawn of world eras.
Please consider holding your own GO108 events, and/or joining us at one of these.
Wishing you Golden Light througout!
GlobeShift and Global Om 108 is continuing to raise funds. We have through next Sunday to reach our goal. The focus is the same GO108 is a recurring event, and the GlobeShift social net website requires financial resources to enable development. Thanks for contributing and sharing this information with others who may be interested! ~ Limor

We have several more locations that have come onboard - yippee!! One which I particularly want to mention now is that a friend is doing a non-religious gathering at the Pentagon prayer room for Pentagon personnel at 12noon on Friday. Thank you, O!
And it would help if I could spell!! I meant the Insight Meditation Community of Washington...though they do incite mindful living. :)
Those of you in the Washington DC area will appreciate this - IMCW - the Incite Meditation Community of Washington - is helping getting the word out to their community on the behalf of Global Om 108. That is thousands of people. Amazing!!! Thank you, Tara! and Jonathan Foust is sending to his amazing list as well. Wow!
Yahooooo! We are over 11% funded for our goal. Every penny is counting. We are developing some cool features for the social networking website and we need a bit more cash than anticipated, so the closer I can get to this goal - the more fun it will be as a site! Thank you everyone!!

Global Om 108 Update: I am very excited to announce that Satchidananda Ashram Yogaville (located outside of Charlottesville, VA) will be including rolling Oms as part of its Special Peace Day Services 12noon at the Lotus Shrine.
A Quick Note:
1st -Every bit from $1 to $1M is incredibly valuable. Thank you!
2nd -2% of each contribution will go to charitywater.org unless you request otherwise.
We've been doing Global Om chant sessions on Skype to test out the experience. Here is what some of the participants shared:
GlobalOm is an event I am looking forward to. Practicing Om is a healing and calming experience. Sharing with other people such a powerful connection is enriching and I wish it keeps growing and making positive waves around the world, allowing us to feel the one we are.
- Gilad, Miami, Fl, United States
Chanting together via GlobalOmUnity is the best use of technology I can think of! What a wonderful opportunity it's been to connect with kindred spirits from all over the world!
- Margarita, Washington DC, United States
GlobalOm is a beautiful and very powerful experience. I felt connected to the people that I did the Om chant with, and felt peace and harmony.
- Vera, Tel Aviv, Israel
GlobalOm is the only way I know where I feel like I can move the planet.

(Updated Nov 17, 2012) - Studies
show that when people meditate and live from the heart space they can effect
change. The more people who focus on being in the heart space, the greater the
change effected. With regard to
decreases of violence in regions prone to it like urban city centers and
battlefields, the "Maharishi Effect" (as it is known) has seen numerous
repeated results. Imagine what we could do if thousands, dare I
say millions of people meditated from the heart space at any given moment in
I am excited to announce that we are now in the midst of developing a prototype for Global Om, the mobile application. It will allow people to Om together in a global group meditation from wherever they are in the world. It's pretty cool and I am excited about its progress.
Right now we also have a call out for Oms - we need sound contributions for the development. If you are interested, please send as many as 10 Oms (any number is helpful). Each Om should be a different sound file. Any format works great.
We are also continuing what we started on September 21st with the Int'l Day of Peace and are holding monthly Global Om 108 for Peace meditations. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GlobeShift to see what we are doing. We have upcoming meditations planned for November 18th,December 21st and December 22nd (the Winter Solstice and presumed end/dawn of world eras).
We started this campaign in August of this year and our needs have changed as we progressed.
We currently need $32,400 to develop the prototype Global Om mobile app.
$350,000 - this is what it will cost for us to develop the first consumer focused iteration of Global Om. That's a lot of money. But don't be daunted. Even with contributions of a few dollars, we can get there and build this incredible global, unifying communications platform that does not exist on the scale described here.
Thank you for your contribution! Every little bit helps us all to realize this dream of heart based change on a magnitude rarely seen. And for the development of technology that can support its continued access and activation every moment of the day, from anywhere in the world.

A bit about why Om and why 108:
should be our primary focus for these meditations? What can we use to unite everyone? What
if we used the Om chant? Om is said to be the primordial sound of
the life force itself. Pronounced more as Aum, the toning
of it activates particular chakras from the body base on through the top of the
head, activating, unifying and connecting a person's energy within themselves
and to the larger force of life of creation itself. The Om chant is
considered to be a chant of life, bringing together, and healing for those who
do the chant and for the environment around them. And I have to say, having Om-ed quite a bit
in ongoing rolling Oms, the effect of calm, centeredness and presence is quite
one hundred and eight? 108 is a very interesting
number. Religiously for the Buddhists,
Hindus and others 108 is said to refer
to the one unity (1), the emptiness of nothing (0) and the infinity of all (8).
A strand of Tibetan Buddhist prayer beads, called a mala, consists
of 108 beads. Mathematically it is 6 times the number of Chai-Life (18)(from Biblical
numerology), it is a hyperfactoral of 3; a
Tetranacci number; a Harshad number; a Self number and results in the Golden
Equation. For astrologists - 108 is the distance from the Moon to the
Earth divided by the diameter of the Moon, and the distance of the Sun from the
Earth divided by the diameter of the Sun. In other words, this is a
pretty cool number!
