Peace Week 2024: Land Of The Rising Sun

September 15-22, 2024

Peace Week 2024: Land Of The Rising Sun is a week-long pilgrimage of peace-building across the sacred lands of Japan. We start in Tokyo, move onto Mt Fuji and conclude in the historic city of Hiroshima. This momentous event is a continuation of the U Day Festival series which began in December 2012 in Chiang Mai Thailand. U DAY Ethiopia: Land of Origins then took place in 2018 and Holy Land Living Water was in 2020. This event in Japan, 12 years on from humble beginnings, will be the final event in the global U Day Series.

Join us on this sacred pilgrimage with an extraordinary collective of global Peace-Builders from around the world for this culminating journey of UNITY EARTH’s 2012-2024 series of world-wide events.

Peace Week 2024 Japan: Land of the Rising Sun is a continuation of the U Day global event series and the final rite of passage in our 12 year life cycle of growth together as a UNITY EARTH spirit family. I can say personally that these journeys have changed me at core levels and have been filled with some of the most potent shared spiritual and musical experiences of my life. At this pivotal moment in our human evolution, we are now invited to step through this transformational gateway, where sacred ancient and future converge, with our hearts blazing open once more. Wisdom, ritual, creativity, music, healing and rich culture await us as we circle around this mystic fire for an epic final ceremony. Connecting with the land and people of Japan, we will feel the rising sun re-sparked within us, both as individuals and as a collective. I look forward to sharing this journey with you…destiny is calling!

These city-convergences have greatly supported the building of a global network of peace-builders, change-makers, evolutionary leaders and civil society organizations dedicated to working for unity, ecological harmony, global transformation and peace. The Tokyo Convergence will be the crowning event, bringing together local and international spiritual communities, NGOs, indigenous leaders and global change-makers, across two days for networking, forging strategic alliances and forward mapping of our collective efforts for peace and unity, at this most-critical juncture in world history.
