Colegiales, Argentina: report by Alejandra Percivale
At our gathering in Colegiales on May 29, some 30 people joined in sharing peace prayers from different faiths and traditions, and in praying for peace in each country of the world. We formed a mandala of flags at the center of our space, which we covered with little paper hearts that had messages written on them. We joined hands, and I could feel a great sense of unity and harmony in our hearts.

On May 15, 20 participants joined our SOPP gathering in La Reja, outside Buenos Aires, offering heartfelt prayers for peace in each country as we carried the national flags through the space.
I believe that the call of the Fuji Declaration is a call from the depths of our humanity. It represents real action for unity in diversity, and the creation of the first universal human nation. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate the SOPP and the Fuji Declaration.

Our yoga group in Los Polvorines hosted an SOPP gathering on May 15, with about 30 people attending, including some children.

During the gathering, we offered prayers from different faiths and traditions, and we introduced the Soul of WoMen campaign, handing out sheets of paper for participants to write expressions of the divine feminine.

Neuquén, Argentina: report by Patricia Mennutto
Our first SOPP ceremony in Neuquén was a wonderful gathering, with some 65 people attending. We held the event on May 14, in a local gymnasium. Prayer leaders from various religions led participants in prayers for peace from their respective faiths. It was amazing to see a priest, a rabbi, and a Muslim representative all asking for peace together, quite at ease with each other. Now they are already talking about next year’s gathering!
We introduced the Soul of WoMen Global Campaign, and participants were given sheets of paper on which to write words that embody the divine feminine. We created a mandala with the yin and yang symbol in it, and we prayed for peace in every country and region. Our flag cards looked beautiful placed together in a large square, with flowers at the center.
I felt that everyone who attended felt unity and strength. A light has been lit in Neuquén!

12 women gathered to join in planting a peace pole at my home in Pablo Nogués, near Buenos Aires. We elevated our consciousness with positive thoughts, and generated a beautiful energy. It was a lovely time together. An inherent peace resides within us. We don’t need to look for it outside—it is inside us. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

On the afternoon of May 26, six women gathered in Rosario del Tala, in the province of Entre Ríos. I introduced the Soul of WoMen campaign, and then each of us recited a prayer for peace. We finished with the prayer May Peace Prevail on Earth, which was something that came spontaneously! It was beautiful when the sun shone on us. A soft breeze caressed our faces as we sang our prayer for world peace. Everything flowed smoothly, without any preparation. We felt united with the feminine and masculine energies—a sense of true, deep peace!

I felt the precious and gratifying energy of our prayers resonating with one voice, and I felt like I was waking up to a new earth at peace. Our divine sparks merged into one, and at the same time we were connected with everybody, everywhere—breathing, meditating, praying, dancing, and singing. I felt strong emotions when manifesting our divine feminine qualities, full of light, power, creativity, and beauty. It was a vibrant gathering of love and harmony.

The commitment of each individual was a determining factor in the sharing of an energy that was in tune with the aim of the gathering. These gatherings elevate the vibration of the human being, and of the planet. A beautiful experience!”
