On 11/11 of this year, Do As One is inviting the world to create "ONE Day"- A global event of synchronous intention, imagination, and prayer. The vision is that one billion people will connect at the same time, participating in events of their choosing, and then breathe as ONE, using the Universal Breathing Room on our site.

Whether it is through prayer, parties, meditation, chanting, ecstatic dance, singing, laughing, or yoga, we envision people from around the world collectively connecting in whatever w
ay is most meaningful for them.

This global, synchronized call-out to Oneness and Divinity will last for 1 hour, beginning 1pm, PST on 11/11 (New York 4pm, London 9pm, Berlin 10pm, Cairo 11pm, Moscow 12am*, Karachi 2am*, Mumbai 2:30am*, Jakarta 4am*, Beijing 5am*, Sydney 8am* (*means on the morning of 12/11/12 )

Corresponding times around the world: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20121111T2100

After ONE Hour, we will breathe as ONE, using the Universal Breathing Room on our website.
Experience the UBR now: http://doasone.com/BreathingRooms.aspx?RoomID=1

Whilst breathing as One, connected in spirit, we can pray for, imagine, and intend the world we would like to live in.

Celebrate "ONE Day" on 11/11 by hosting your own event at:

Events are entirely up to you. This is an all-inclusive event. If you like, hold a meditation group, or ask your local church, temple, or mosque to hold a special service, throw a party and connect via the beat, hold a Kirtan circle… anything you choose. The events can be small, intimate gatherings of friends or family, or they can be large public gatherings.

If you do create an event, please let us know so that we can list it on the site. The events can be listed as public or private. If you create a public event please leave us an email address or phone number so that other people can join.

If you are too busy to join an event, or if its too early where you are, you can still participate simply by breathing with us in the UBR after the ONE Hour- (2pm LA, 5pm New York, 10pm London, 12am Cairo, etc)

Throughout history, people around the world have imagined a better
future and said "One Day"…

One day there will be peace on Earth.
One day we’ll see past our differences.
One day we’ll live in harmony.
One day we’ll all be free.

ONE Day is no longer in the future. ONE Day is here. ONE Day is now…

ONE Day, ONE Breath, ONE Love

Be ONE with the billion!


A ten day community driven festival with the focus of creating opportunities for local communities and individuals to share their unique gifts and collaborate in the spirit of selfless service.

By promoting the awareness of a diverse range of community projects within Puna, we encourage community interaction resulting in the sharing of culture, resources, talent, food, products, wellness services, natural resources, education, entertainment, and celebration, resulting in a more unified greater community.

Only the first and last days of the festival will be produced by Gift Culture, while the days between 12/12 and 12/21 are open for special events to be hosted by the community. We are now accepting proposals from community members and organizations who would like to host special events during the dates of 12/13-12/20.

Note that these community hosted events will create the bulk of the festival, and as events are added to the program, they will be added to the online festival schedule as well. This festival is not possible without community involvement and dedication. If you have an idea or offering, feel free to contact

The Really, Really Free Market (RRFM)
is a free COMMUNITY BUILDING gathering representing the Gift Economy where all are encouraged to give, receive, and create on their own terms without the expectation of payment. It holds as a major goal to build a community based on sharing resources, caring for one another and improving the collective lives of all.

The RRFM, as opposed to the Not-So-Free Free Market, breaks down the myth of scarcity and encourages us to take advantage of the abundance all around us.

It’s like a potluck: everyone brings something and leaves with more. We all have , skills, ideas, resources, MUSIC, smiles, talents/performances, crafts, games, plants, discussions, useable items, and many other things to share..If we bring them together at the REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET, we can provide more balanced and full lives for us all! The most beautiful aspect of this event is to witness the friendships blossom and the community growing together!! Join their Facebook Group
