The Wind Song retreat centre hosted its second SOPP, with some participants arriving the day before, lighting the Peace Flame that evening. The ceremony began with a ‘welcome’ on behalf of the world’s indigenous peoples, followed by ceremonious drumming. The Peace Flame was relit, and participants prayed in silence the prayers of different faiths, then joined in offering a special multi-faith prayer. After a musical performance, a flag ceremony was held to pray for peace in each country, followed by a Global Peace Meditation, a prayer for harmony with nature, and the peace song “One Day.”
