Usually, flash mobs are associated with a sudden group of people flooding a public square or even a library to play music or dance to Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller.”

But this weekend Greenfield Lake Park will host a flash mob of quiet meditators.

The Flash Mob Silent Meditation and Sound Bath will be at 11 a.m. Sunday (April 15) at Greenfield Lake Park (not the amphitheater) at 421 South, Burnett Boulevard.

“A large group of sitting meditators will exude an inner peace, strength, and happiness intended to brighten the day of every observer,” said Wilmington Med Mob’s web site. The mediation should be about an hour with about 10 minutes of “sound bath” or continuous Om meditation sounds. There will also live drumming and dancing at the conclusion of the event.

The group’s goal, according to its web site is “to expose the world to meditation through public display of meditation, to create an environment for people from all walks of life to come together in meditation and to come together as a global community to create and expand positive intention and action.”
