PEACE FESTIVAL Glarisegg Castle, Austria September 21, 2008 Glarisegg Castle is a place that is enlivened and shaped by the people who inhabit it and who carry the responsibility for the various departments. The life and work community unites people of various professional backgrounds like arts, therapy, education, theology, crafts, alternative healing methods, agriculture, computer science, management, and architecture. These people are linked by the wish to face their own responsibility and the issues of today’s life, and to build up an environment where new forms of living can be explored and experienced. www.schloss-glarisegg.ch SoUth Carolina PINWHEELS FOR PEACE B-C#1 Grammar School Lexington District 2 West Columbia, SC tExaS South Texas Alliance for Peace and Justice Corpus Christi, Texas One Spirit Learning Alliance and Coalition for One Voice invites you to join a many-splendored festival WORLD SHIFT TO PEACE FESTIVAL Saturday, September 20 1-5:30 PM 4th Universalist Church “Landmark on the Park” 160 Central Park West (at 76th St.) Featuring Keynote Speaker: Theologian, Matthew Fox “World Shift to Peace” Followed by Concurrent Workshops & Presentations from, among others, What is Enlightenment magazine, We the World, Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, One Voice Integral Circle, United Nations NGO’s in Peace and Environment, Women’s World Peace Initiative, InterSpiritual Dialogue, New Realities, Alex Gray’s Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, One Spirit Learning Alliance, Integral Yoga, One Voice Education Circle. www.onespiritinterfaith.org GLOBAL Vessels Of Peace September 21, 2008 4 x 4 Chanting of Peace Mantras: Peace Om Shanti Salaam Shalom Vessels of Peace women have used this chant as a prayer, a walking or sitting meditation focus and as an affirmation. We believe its vibration affects not only the person chanting/repeating/thinking it, but also, those around them and the earth herself. We believe it energetically builds and strengthens a “field of peace” on and around the earth. Chant the peace mantras four times, at four different times during the day – for example, before each meal and at bedtime. www.vesselsofpeace.com aUStralia SYDNEY PEACE FESTIVAL September 21, 2008 Victoria Park, Sydney, Australia The Sydney Peace Festival has been conducted since 2006, timed to coincide with Peace Day, in three parts.
