A year ago, right around Valentine's Day in 2007, Lynn Thompson had guests in the studio at CHLY to talk about local events in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island for "The Day of Toning" ~ Elly Parker, Lora Teuschler and Daeva N. Guest. Spontaneously Jonathon Goldman was able to be in on the conversation via phone from Colorado. The whole idea is for people around the world to tone at noon in their own time zones for at least 5 minutes ~ with many groups gathering to tone for hours in waves and shifts of sound. Roger Nelson, director of the Global Consciousness Project is mentioned, as they measure the effect.

To send the world a Sonic Valentine! 2008 is the 6th anniversary of this global event.

The Sound Healers Association was founded on Valentine’s Day in 1982.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
