The IBREA events in Hawaii are a celebration of the Earth Citizen Movement in the region, and a wonderful opportunity to support charitable organizations like Carole Kai that do so much to improve people's lives.
(Vocus/PRWEB) February 19, 2011
On February 21, members of the Hawaii chapter of the Ilchi Lee peace non-governmental organization known as the International Brain Education Association (IBREA) will participate in the Great Aloha Run, an 8.15 mile walk from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The event is one of many in the community that the local IBREA chapter endeavors to join or support as part of the Earth Citizen Movement. IBREA hopes to promote peace and Earth awareness by helping local and international charities and encouraging the contributions of individuals. One of Hawaii’s largest participatory races, the Great Aloha Run is in its twenty-seventh year and will benefit the Carole Kai charities.
“My vision is to make the earth a more peaceful, happy, and healthy place by creating 100 million Earth Citizens--people who know that the earth and our brains are the common denominator among all people who seek peace and harmony,” said Lee. “The IBREA events in Hawaii are a celebration of the Earth Citizen Movement in the region and a wonderful opportunity to support charitable organizations like Carole Kai that do so much to improve people's lives.”
The first Ilchi Lee-inspired event of 2011 was the Mago’s Dream Potluck on January 11. The Mago Earth Festival for Peace will be held on May 15 at the McCoy Pavilion in Ala Moana Beach Park. The inspiration for these events is expressed in Ilchi Lee's book, Mago's Dream. Mago is a Korean term for Mother Earth. In his book, Lee claims that the Earth dreams of peace and harmony between all living things and between human beings and itself. He wrote, "I feel the sadness and grief that the Earth feels as she watches her children destroy themselves along with her."
