new_york_cityBraco returns to Manhattan over the Memorial Day Weekend for a special 3-day event! Thousands came out for the public gazing event that followed Braco's special appearance at the United Nations Church Center in November 2012, where he gazed for the United Nations community and his work of peace was acknowledged, with him receiving an honorary peace pole. Again this March, the people of NYC enthusiastically met Braco's gaze, and stories of transformation, healing and new found joy were abundantly offered by visitors.

Next, Braco will share his special gift of love over the Memorial Day weekend at the famous Pennsylvania hotel, conveniently located near the Empire State building and a short walk to Times Square. People from neighboring areas & states can take the train or subway into this NYC transit hub at Penn Station, and simply walk across the street to the Pennsylvania hotel. So many are experiencing the awakening of the inner peace and strength within through Braco's silent gaze, and everyone is welcome to attend this event.

Please note for ALL GAZING EVENTS: Must be 18 years of age or over to attend and pregnant women are not allowed to attend after their third month of pregnancy due to the intensity of the experience for some.
