The sitting room of Trevor Murphy's family home, just off Junction Road doesn't look as if it's the UK nerve centre for a project involving a million children – but it is. Trevor is part of an international team working on The Jump Party - facilitating one million children to jump into the air at the same time.
"The purpose is to get them to concentrate, to be in the moment, it's a form of yoga meditation," he explains. When they're in the air we are going to conduct a virtual clean sweep so that when they land it will be on a new, cleansed earth. As they land we will encourage them to meditate and to understand that they are joined by a million others, all delicately interconnected."
The Jump Party will be about much more than the jump itself - "we want to have, dancing, laughter yoga, and mindfulness games". In the UK, a number of venues have already signed up to host a Jump Party, including a major London football club, but it's an international project with many of the participants living in India.
"I first became involved in children and meditation when I became a volunteer for Childline. So many of the calls we received expressed despair and depression. I wanted to do something to help to give children the tools to help themselves: mindfulness and meditation - through which every child can heal themselves."
Trevor, who has a successful career as an animator specialising in animations for bands on tour, and his collaborator Aida Niang, are members of the International Yoga Day Committee. The Jump Party is one of the events on this year's World Yoga Day, which is celebrated on 21st June. In order that the children of the world all jump at the same time, the event will happen at different times in different countries - it will be 12 noon in the UK.
