Help Shape Spirituality Goals for the 21st Century

The International Committee for the Peace Council (ICPC), the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), and the Interreligious Engagement Project (IEP21) are collaborating to convene Awakened World 2012: Engaged Spirituality for the 21st Century, from October 13 to 21, in Rome and Florence, Italy.

The event is open to all, and individuals are invited to take part in this unique gathering of visionaries and activists that will explore the evolution of religion and spirituality in the 21st century as a significant challenge and opportunity for the world.

Participants will play a key role in an assembly of religious, spiritual, and cultural leaders that will meet with committed global citizens to shape A Charter for Engaged Spirituality in the Twenty-First Century.

Attendees will work personally with global leaders from all faiths and cultures; explore the evolution of spirituality and faith in the 21st century; set the stage for the next decades of evolutionary activism; and ground a shared vision in a plan of action with tools to support it.
