#130. The Brazil Songs of the Soul tour 2018

Songs of the Soul is a musical journey which takes the depth, power and sheer vastness of Sri Chinmoy’s musical compositions and weaves an experience dedicated to the journey of the human spirit.

Sri Chinmoy’s heart-warming, soul-stirring music has been acclaimed and celebrated by musical giants including Ravi Shankar, Leonard Bernstein and Quincy Jones. Over his lifetime, Sri Chinmoy offered almost 800 concerts around the world, all of them free of charge, in the belief that the inner peace and happiness he sought to convey through his music was everyone’s birthright.

Songs of the Soul is proud to continue that self-giving tradition by offering all their concerts free of charge.

#123. Peace Run (Peace Arch – June 10, 2018)

We were honoured to be asked to participate in the Hands Across the Border ceremony at Peace Arch Park for the second time. The Peace Run was prominently recognized on the event’s program, and were the first booth people saw when they entered the park. Hundreds of Scouts stopped by the booth to learn about peace and make crepe paper torches. The event organizers even incorporated the Peace Run into a scavenger hunt for which participants needed to write down the Peace Run’s official motto: “Peace Begins with Me.” 

The event was a celebration of unity between Canadian and American girls and boys Scouts, and featured booths from many inspiring organizations. Peace Runners from both Vancouver and Seattle made the drive to Peace Arch Park, supplying smiles and crepe paper torch-making skills to all.
