The Village Surrey Transition Initiative presents a free public screening of “Globalized Soul: Stories from the Tipping Point to a New World” on Wednesday, April 16, 2014. The screening takes place at the Surrey City Centre Library, 10350 University Drive, in the Dr. Ambedkar Room, 4th Floor. Doors open at 6:00pm, screening starts at 6:30pm. The screening will be followed by an open dialogue.
“Globalized Soul” is a mystic tour through the ancient longing of humanity for peace. It tells of a rising consciousness on earth of our oneness at the moment in history when collective love and nonviolence are necessary for our survival. Gorgeously filmed at The Parliament of The World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia, and in India, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, Mexico, and The United States, the film celebrates the colorful diversity of the Spirit of the Earth and our common heart.
Like an ensemble drama it weaves stories of empowered peacemakers around the planet. Hatred and suffering are transformed into love and caring. Interviews with global spiritual leaders gathered in Melbourne interlace the documentary. Indigenous elders such as Uncle Bob Randall from Uluru offer the same prescription for a sustainable world – love, sharing what we have, and acknowledgement of universal sacredness.
Soaring on the music of Enya, Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar, “Globalized Soul” casts beautiful light on the path toward harmony. By the end of this odyssey the question posed at the beginning is answered: Only love and compassion lifts and sustains the world and is desperately needed at today’s “global tipping point.”
This screening is sponsored by Village Surrey, the Dr. Ambedkar Federation, Chetna Association of Canada, and the Surrey Interfaith Contemplative Group.
