The Vegvisr prize is a prize for a person who has shown by his or her work willingness to lead in the field of what we think of as aliveness work. Aliveness work is what brings more vitality, better health, joyfulness and loving kindness for all. The prize was first given to Mehtab Benton in 2017 in his workshop at Yoga Mangalam in Sweden. For his work of in yoga and for bringing the gong out to people internationally.
We want this prize to be for both women and men, so this time or this year 2019 the prize will go to a woman. It is a prize not only for the well known or famous but for “the every day hero”. It could be a local person or a international person.
The prize should go to a person that is a leader in his/her field of work, that show leadership and has shown the way for many others. It could be a yoga teacher, a healer, doctor, nurse, nun, priest, munk, , mother, father, brother , sister , the list goes on. A person who is doing good to guide others into a better way of living is also another way to say this.
The Vegvirs prize itself is for this year a new “secret” handcrafted singing stone – instrument designed by our own art designer Gizem from Istanbul after a concept from Gongmaster Tor Arne Håve.
The Vegvirs prize is a semi annual event so next time will be in 2021.
