Hundreds pack in to Mullum hall for a conscious response to the bushfires

A shift in consciousness can save the earth from the crisis we are facing.

That was the core message from cellular biologist Dr Bruce Lipton at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Thursday night.

Close to 500 people crammed into the hall and its surrounds to see Dr Litpon speak as part of a gathering which was organised by UPLIFT and posed the question ‘what are the fires telling us?’.

Dr Lipton told the enthralled audience that our consciousness is manifesting the world we are living in.

‘We are told that human behaviour is precipitating an extinction,’ Dr Lipton said.

‘Our consciousness is creating this.’

He said that the answer was to change our consciousness, ‘both who we are and what we are’.

‘You can sit right here in this room and open up your heart and send it out. Prayer works. This is how powerful this is at this time.

‘With waves of collective consciousness you can return the earth to the beautiful garden it was always intended to be’.

Funds raised

The event, which raised $12,000 for wildlife rescue organisation WIRES, also featured a panel discussion on the ‘most loving and authentic response, both individually and collectively’ to the bushfires.

Featured in the discussion were international and local guests including Dr Lipton, Ganga Mira, Prince EA, Holley Somerville-Knot, Zenith Virago, Jarmbi, and Jean Renouf.

Later in the evening, musicians Deva Premal & Miten lead a chanting and song session, with hundreds singing and swaying along.

The pair also announced that they would be donating all proceeds from their upcoming Australian tour to Fire Relief.
