About 60 people joined in an SOPP ceremony held on May 15. The ceremony opened with the lighting of the Peace Flame, followed by a session of silent, individual prayer in which participants interacted with the four elements, and then prayed a special prayer combining prayer words from many different faiths. After two musical performances, participants prayed for peace in each country, and then offered a prayer for harmony between humanity and nature. To close, participants joined hands in a circle for a Global Peace Meditation.
