Birmingham, City United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 29, 2007 -- Birmingham is to host the British leg of a world tour spreading the message of peace and oneness as part of a global campaign to cultivate greater spiritual awareness.
The Humanity's Team "Around the World in Oneness" Tour brings the message of best-selling author Neale Donald Walsch to the UK with a day-long schedule of activities and discussions to be held at Birmingham's Adrian Boult Hall on April 10th.
Walsch's books - the Conversations with God series - examine the foundations of the world's spiritual beliefs and urge readers to abandon ideas about God which do not serve us and which he says are the source of increasing violence and conflict across the world.
He set up Humanity's Team four years ago in a bid to create a worldwide grassroots movement based on the message of his books.
David Kirby, UK co-ordinator for the organization, said, "The tour is a major event for Birmingham and will create an important spiritual focus for people who wish to look deeper into the larger questions about God and their relationship both to each other and this higher power.
"This is an event aimed at everyone from all religions and cultures and is designed to promote the central message of Conversations with God, and indeed all major spiritual traditions, that we are all one, regardless of our background and upbringing."
As well as a keynote speech given by Walsch, the event - dubbed "A Day of Spiritual Renewal" - includes an evening satsung and music from guest singer-songwriter Lucinda Drayton.
Britain is one of 10 countries in five continents across the globe to be visited as part of the tour; the other countries are New Zealand, Japan, Portugal, Moldova, Germany, South Africa, Argentina, USA and Canada.
Conversations with God is a series of books written as a dialogue between the author and God covering life's big questions. Walsch's candid and powerful examination of humanity and its struggle for fulfilment, peace and happiness lead him to a range of challenging and radical new perspectives on spirituality.
"Our idea of separateness is embedded in our cultural stories about who we are as human beings, and these stories have laid the foundations for some of the most damaging and destructive events in history, as well as continuing to get in the way of our living in peace as a race," continues Kirby.
"Through this day of activities and discussions we hope to offer individuals a fresh angle on spirituality while spreading the revolutionary idea that each of us is part of a greater truth."
