The Global Solstice Healing Day was a great success, with many different faiths and groups represented. The theme was “Healing the Family” which was a timely reflection coming so shortly after the Lindt Cafe tragedy. What struck me most as we sat on this warm Summer afternoon, was hearing directly from the speakers how each spiritual faith holds dear the values of love and compassion for all of the human family, even those who have strayed far from the path of what it means to be a decent and good human being.It was a very healing moment in what had been a harrowing week. The language, the rituals , the cultural accouterments may differ but the heart essence remains the same
Channel 7 news were there and interviewed some of the speakers and recorded footage of the release of the doves as a symbol of universal peace.
