Melbourne, Australia (Eltham)

The SOPP ceremony held in Melbourne on May 21 began with an acknowledgement of the Traditional Landowners of Australia and a prayer sung in an aboriginal language. These were followed by prayers from various faith traditions, the lighting of candles, and prayers for peace in all the regions of the world. Participants joined in a song and a dance to honor the divine feminine, as well as other songs of peace. The ceremony closed with a dance based on a Sufi prayer.
