Registration for the 2018 Symphony of Peace Prayers is now open! We invite everyone around the world who wishes to take part in this global peace event to register on our website and make your mark on our SOPP world map!
No matter where you are in the world, you can join with us in sending out prayers for global peace and harmony this May! There are so many ways to be part of the SOPP:
- Organize an SOPP ceremony in your area, with local religious and spiritual leaders — the larger the better! (See our resources for hosting an event.)
- Use a local community centre, church, or public park to gather with friends, colleagues, and/or community members to pray for world peace and honor the world’s faith traditions.
- Invite friends and family to your home and hold a simple peace prayer ceremony.
- Take part in the SOPP on your own, linking your prayers with thousands of others around the world. You can even join in the ceremony at Fuji Sanctuary through our live internet broadcast (more details coming soon).
If you are planning to participate in any of these ways, we want to know about it! Please register on the SOPP website and add your event to our world map!
The possibilities for holding a ceremony or gathering are truly infinite! Music, dance, visual arts, meditation, walks in nature, candlelight prayers, poetry, silence—anything you can imagine! Try incorporating the Fuji Declaration or the Soul of WoMen movement, which seek to uncover the divine spark in every human being and bring balance between the divine feminine and divine masculine. And of course, we encourage you to join in offering prayers for peace in each country and prayers from different faiths and traditions. For more info and ideas, please visit our resources page.
The grand ceremony at Fuji Sanctuary in Japan will take place at 10 am on May 20. We invite everyone to hold their events as close in time as possible, to combine the power of our prayers. Of course, you are always free to hold your event on whatever day is most convenient for you and your participants.
Together, let us celebrate the energy of love that unites us, and the divine spark that resides at the core of our being. We look forward to receiving your registrations, and to co-creating a new world through the SOPP!
May Peace Prevail on Earth.
