Oakland, Ca. January 6, 2015  — On January 10, 2015, a Field of Resonance will be created to bring healing to Oakland, not by force, not by protesting – but through the Power of Intention – by a collective of some of the Bay Area’s most innovative thinkers, community elders, healing practitioners, artists, musicians and entrepreneurs, at Rebirth and Renewal 2015 taking place at Impact Hub Oakland.

The effect of mass prayer and meditation has been documented through studies in several major cities where the occurrence of violent crime decreased measurably in the presence of peace vigils.

“In the instant of our first breath, we are infused with the single greatest force in the universe–the power to translate the possibilities of our minds into the reality of the world,” says best-selling author Greg Braden. “…in the language of (Quantum) physics we’re creating  the electrical and magnetic expression of them as waves of energy, which aren’t confined to our hearts or limited by the physical barrier of our skin and bones.”

The late Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water demonstrated that human consciousness has a physical effect on the molecular structure of water…that polluted water could be cleaned through prayer and positive visualization.

The streets of Oakland have been for too long polluted by violence, so we invite the Mayor, Police Commissioner, the City Council and the News Media to join us in sacred ritual to cleanse our City this Saturday at our closing ceremony.

“Let’s do an experiment to see if mediation can bring healing to Oakland,” says Dave Room, CEO of BALANCE Edutainment. “What if we see a measurable reduction in violence in Oakland this weekend?”

As part of Rebirth & Renewal 2015, at 4:30 pm PST, Amelía Aeon Karris of will light a candle to open the field of resonance and invite those participating remotely to light a candle as well. She will then guide all those participating, in person, on the audio line, through the ether, locally and globally, in a meditation on healing, reconciliation and fellowship for Oakland. She will also invite participants to bring people and communities in need of healing into the field.

Earlier in the day, participants of Rebirth & Renewal 2015 will get charged up as they release 2014 and call forth their big dreams for 2015. Visit for more information.
