2012 The Planetary Healing Artists’ organized our first Global Healing Day event at Catani Gardens, St Kilda foreshore with around 30 participants and 200 or more people in attendance. The event theme was Healing the Planet, and later would be known as our first Solstice event.
Indigenous Elders performed a traditional Smoking Ceremony, people of many different faiths, spiritual and local groups, poets, artists, musicians, environmentalists connected for this Healing event for peace and harmony. Planetary Healing Artists’ showcased the symbolism of co-operation, interracial communication, acceptance, peace and love between all people. No group was excluded, and all were welcome.
Local Radio and the media broadcasted this event, magazines and local papers advertised it and a video was made for a permanent historic record of this truly special point in time.
