More information on World Peace & Prayer Day:
June 21, 2017 marks the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day, also referred to as Honoring Sacred Sites Day. World Peace And Prayer Day is an international and intergenerational celebration for people of all faiths, nations, races, ages and genders who share concern for the welfare of humanity and the Earth to share in One Prayer. Wisdom keepers and activists share spiritual insight and discuss important environmental concerns and solutions on both a local and global level, and honoring ceremonies are observed at the main convening.
World Peace and Prayer Day encompasses more than just the ceremony and call to prayer on the June 21st Solstice. In 2017, global delegates will gather with local leaders, cultural practitioners and supporters at Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park for ceremony, cultural presentations, discussions, storytelling and wisdom sharing sessions on the days leading up to the Solstice, June 18, 19 and 20th. The gathering will allow participants to exchange traditional knowledge and current efforts on cultural and community issues with each other and the younger generation of leaders, bringing new possibilities and solutions home with them.

In choosing Hawaiʻi as this year’s WPPD site, prayers will be offered to the heavens for Mauna Kea and to the highest fresh water for Lake Waiau, and to the entire Earth for the sacred fire at Kilauea.
