The 7th Edinburgh International Festival of Middle Eastern Spirituality and Peace, will take place 5th-18th March 2010. The event aims to improve mutual understanding between the spiritual, secular, educational and cultural traditions that have arisen in the Middle East. There is also a special focus on those that have found a home in Scotland.
The festival encourages participation, in order for people to gain an experiential view of different traditions. There will be 80 events, with a diverse selection of international speakers and guests. The audiences will hear from those who have been active peacemakers in the Middle East and will also have the opportunity to share some of the musical and spiritual practices presented.
Middle East Festival co-founders Neill Walker and Dr Neil Douglas-Klotz said: ‘The event positively affirms the diversity contained within the spiritual and cultural traditions of the Middle East, as well as those here in Scotland. We intend to create a forum, in which we can listen to one another deeply and learn with open minds and hearts.’
