Global Prayer Summit
" A Healing Among Nations Prayer Retreat & Summit" November 20-23, 1999 Portland, Oregon
By creating a unified vision to release the suffering of the past for each nation of people and to affirm the highest good for all people in our awakening world, an individual and collective healing took place at The Prayer Retreat and Summit . Through prayer, visioning and the telling of one’s story among over thirty of the world’s spiritual leaders, A Healing Among Nations Prayer Retreat and Summit established a potent bedrock foundation for the ensuing process of intercultural healing among people and nations.
The intention invoked a unified spiritual vision for our future projects and now fosters the spiritual dimensions for developing the visual and oral history project. Each participant lead the group in prayer, meditation and ritual, asking for the release of the ancestral suffering through forgiveness requesting the uplifting of humanity and all beings.
In a concentrated effort for two and a half days, each member had hours to address the points of crisis and greatness for their people and nations throughout history. This process assisted in the retrieval and release of the past patterns of fear creating a clearer and more enlightened future. When we as a people, as nations, work towards collectively understanding the past by investigating what happened, it creates a factual record that impedes future distortion or further manipulation of the truth. This potent event was lifechanging for all of us.
We have a primordial need to be universally responsible to one another. This inner knowing that each act of love touches every part of the universe and uplifts all life does indeed evoke the sacred at the core of our lives. Your participation and contribution with other great beings in this work is deeply appreciated.
