Geelong, Australia (2events)
An SOPP ceremony was held at a community centre in Geelong. The ceremony began with a 'Welcome to Country,' followed by prayers from nine different faiths. Next, participants offered gratitude to each of the four elements of nature. A musical performance, flag ceremony, and meditation followed, after which the ceremony moved outdoors for the planting of a peace tree and the flying of kites with positive messages.
Ms. Jenny Funston, who helped organize the Geelong ceremony, held a private ceremony in her home, with interfaith prayers, a flag ceremony, and a Global Peace Meditation.
