Spirit of Peace is a non profit making organisation which was founded as a
turn of the century project to create a space for the contemplation of inner
and outer peace. Building on last year�s day of lecture and workshops this
year we will celebrate by hosting a day of sacred music, poetry and art at
the Holywell music room in Oxford on 10th November 2001. We will be
exploring the media of music, poetry and arts as ways to explore the rich
tapestry of our diverse traditions, and the spirituality behind our beliefs.
To conclude the day there will be a coming together in an improvised finale
involving all the performers and any members of the audience who wish to
participate, so please bring musical instruments and singing voices! We have
chosen Amnesty International as the beneficiary of this year's conference,
and all profits will be donated to them.
