UNITY OF VANCOUVER and THE PNEUMA INSTITUTE Presented:
“INTERFAITH HARMONY and WHAT CONNECTS US”
An Interfaith Spirituality Gathering, on Monday Feb. 4.
THIS WILL BE AN ANNUAL EVENT EACH YEAR.
As observed by the United Nations, World Interfaith Harmony Week was celebrated globally in the first week of February 2019. Unity of Vancouver and the Pneuma Institute of Canada welcomed a large and diverse group for connection, understanding, and celebration of multiple spiritual traditions.
For more than 25 years, the Pneuma Institute has been promoting international intercultural encounters and unifying dialogue with the Tibetan monks, the Qero Holy people of Peru and other spiritual traditions on the planet. We believe that human spirituality expresses in different ways in the various traditions of the world. We encourage dialogue, collaboration, and testimony from different cultures to promote unity in diversity.
In this special event, we will recognize and honor the beauty and wisdom present through the virtues which connect these traditions.
