Subject: Fwd: Rockaway Labyrinth proposal Funded!
To: Paula@596acres.org
Cc: mara@596acres.org

The long awaited and highly anticipated Rockaway Labyrinth has been funded!
Councilman Eric Ulrich announced the funded projects for his 2017 Participatory Budget last night.
The Rockaway community, devastated by Hurricane Sandy has suffered with severe anxiety, depression and a multitude of physical ailments related to the losses.
The Labyrinth is an ancient walking meditation tool that has an abundance of research to demonstrate it’s effectiveness in decreasing stress and these associated disorders.
A brilliant alternative mental health strategy to Build Resilience in Rockaway.

This is a potential site for a community meditation labyrinth conceived-of by a doctor who lives in the area. We just got this note from her:

"I had a very productive meeting with Portia Dyrenforth of NYC Parks. We identified a perfect area adjacent to the boardwalk at 78th St. Setting up a meeting for next week with Dolores Orr, Community Board Chair. Onward and upward ! "
