Event Details

Ten Thousand Villages of Austin

· Texas State Capitol; 112 E 11th St, Austin, TX 78701
· Saturday, July 6, 2013
· 9AM - 10AM

Join Ten Thousand Villages on the Texas State Capitol grounds as we try to ring over 100 singing bowls in unison in a display of harmony and peace in downtown Austin. We are trying to set a world record for the Guinness Book of World Records. As Austin’s only 100% Fair Trade store, we hope to raise awareness of the benefits of Fair Trade practices. This event is in conjunction with World Tibet Day, the birthday of the Dalai Lama. 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the Capitol grounds. You may bring your own singing bowl. Singing bowls are available for sale at Ten Thousand Villages and a limited number will be available for “check out” at the event. A short instruction session will begin at 9:00 a.m. Bring a blanket or a folding chair. We’ll have water for all participants.
