The Michigan premier of the film, “Globalized Soul” will be featured at the fourth annual ONE PEACE event celebrating the United Nations International Day of Peace
in the Livonia Civic Center Library auditorium, Wednesday, September 21st from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Filmed world-wide, “Globalized Soul” explores the oneness at the center of the colorful diversity among the world's religions. It shows spiritual leaders and activists coming together in search of unity in addressing the crises facing humanity and the earth.
Onscreen commentaries include the Dalai Lama, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Rev. James Trapp, Sister Joan Chittister, and other notable religious leaders.

The cornerstone of the film is its coverage of one of the largest interfaith gatherings in history, "The Parliament of the World's Religions" held in Melbourne, Australia in December, 2009. The film follows two participants back to their homeland. Asha Mehta returns to India where she and her husband provide free prosthesis and therapy for people who can’t walk. Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bukhari, cofounder of The Jerusalem Peacemakers, returns to Israel. His beautiful spirit is at the heart of the film.

In addition, an exhibition of children’s peace art from sixty three different countries will be displayed in the library atrium. The art is provided by Peace Pals International. There will also be tables from peace organizations: Citizens for Peace, the United Nations Association of Detroit, Michigan Peace Network, the Michigan Peace Team, Moveable Peace, and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. The Citizens for Peace is a sponsor of the ONE PEACE event. (734) 425-0079. Livonia Civic Center Library, 32777 Five Mile Rd.
