A Parliament of the World's Religions 2004
July 6 - 13, 2004
Barcelona, Spain
*Embracing Difference, Transforming the World*

EarthSpirit is honored to be able to continue our participation in the international interfaith arena by participating in A Parliament for the World's Religions in July, 2004.

A Parliament for the World's Religions was first held in Chicago in 1893 with the intent to bring together diverse religious or spiritual groups and practices in the hopes of building relationships and fostering cooperation and understanding across religious and spiritual lines. A Centennial Parliament was held in Chicago in 1993 with great success and a commitment was made to hold the event every five years in different places across the globe. EarthSpirit was there in 1993 - as a sponsor and presenter and it was there again in Capetown, South Africa in 1999. For information about our participation in 1993 and 1999, please go to: EarthSpirit's Parliament of World's Religions page.

This year, in 2004, A Parliament of the World's Religions will be held in Barcelona, Spain. The 2004 Parliament is expected to attract over 20,000 spiritual people from around the world and EarthSpirit will be there in force, with 25 members attending. We plan to offer workshops and rituals as well as a MotherTongue performance. We will have representation at the "Assembly of Religious and Spiritual Leaders" and at the "Next Generation" young people's meetings. We look forward to reconnecting with people of many faiths from around the world and to networking with pagans from Europe as well as from the United States.

You can help EarthSpirit bring a pagan perspective to the international interfaith movement by supporting our attendance through a direct donation or by bidding at our our e-bay auction. For more information about how you can help follow this link: Help send EarthSpirit to the Parliament.
