At the first Change Your Mind Day in 1994, a few hundred people gathered in New York City's Central Park for a day of free meditation instruction. Since then, participation in the event has spread to over twenty cities in the U.S. and Canada, and next year forty cities are expected to host events.

Change Your Mind Day 2001 was marked by tumultuous weather across the country. From the rain showers that threatened New York's event to the intimacy of Brattleboro's refuge in a fifteen-person yoga studio, Nature offered unexpected opportunities for deepening awareness. In different locations, meditation teachings were complemented by taiko drumming and martial arts demonstrations, mindful dancing, music and poetry readings. 

If you are interested in starting a Change Your Mind Day in your area, please contact CYMD coordinator Rande Brown at Tricycle: cym@tricycle.com.

Following are reports from several of the CYMD sites this year.
