The miracle, if you get into it, is you can have a couple of thousand people in New York City and it can get very, very quiet. It takes on a kind of tranquillity and collective consciousness, and everybody notices it.” Rande Brown, a former member of Tricycle’s board, estimated that 300 people attended the first event, and that 10 times that number attended in 1998. She said, “Enough people wander by and are serendipitously drawn into the silence.” The event has grown in popularity, as has mindfulness meditation.

The last Change Your Mind Day was held virtually in 2010, although many other organizations continue to host versions of the event.
