Caravan of Unity

Originally the “One Heart Co-Creative Celebration of A Universal Prayer for Peace” was part of the Caravan of Unity, an online gathering organised by ‘Co-Creating Europe’ from September 1st – Sep 21st. We had daily uploads of different interpretations of “The Universal Prayer of Peace” by Eva Millauer for 19 days and over half of them in different languages.

The project will stay open to new contributions as requests for participation have been coming in and are now being considered continuously. You can find the details on the call-out page.

Here are some lovely impressions of a sharing session for participants of the original process of daily uploads during the Caravan of Unity in September 2020:

First upload after the original series of vdieos for the Caravan of Unity:

The global One Heart community is based in recognition that all of life is one and we intuit that there is an enormous creative and healing potential in humanity when it begins to embody as that one.
The video is brought to you by twelve participants and this particular group is based in New Zealand, the US and in the UK. It was a delightful process to co-create this immersive zoom space version of the Universal Prayer for Peace for the Caravan of Unity.
The doors are open now to consider more expansive plans for global cross-continental film projects based in oneness including zoom recordings, individual filming, art, dance and poetry. Should you feel moved to connect with us and join the One Heart community, we are ready to expand. https://community.astheoneheart.com

Lee Ann Fortunato Heltzel is a Meta artist. She channels beautiful qualities of being, like joy and peace into her paintings. She teaches us how to meditate with these images and how to allow a conversation to emerge between the transmission of the paintings and the meditating viewer. Lee and Eva were keen to explore how the Universal Prayer for Peace communicating embodied oneness – as a verbal communication – can be complemented with the visual vibrations of her painting ‘Peace’. We felt this collaboration is a lovely opening for this video series as it gives space to meet very personally with the resonance of peace and the beauty of embodied oneness. Enjoy this collaborative experimental meditation and we would love to hear how it worked for you.

Carmen Kubitz is a transcendental artist based in Germany. Eva orginally met her on a community zoom call with Humanity’s Team. The two connected with a sense they may collaborate at some point. When this project came into being, Eva immediately asked Carmen if she wanted to be involved. She did! Eva and Carmen have developed such a beautiful deep connection since working together. She said she felt as if she had always made these images for the Universal Prayer for Peace, before she even knew of it.

Eva and Silke met over 20 years ago at Brighton University where they both studied Visual and Performance Art. There always was a sense of deep connection. Silke very much questions all identities societal norms want to place on us, including the one of being a performance artist. She is deeply moved to explore in-depth spiritual reality in everything she does and is.
Eva was keen to involve Silke in this project and was delighted that she contributed such a phenomenally beautiful and touching video based on her translation of the poem into German.

Sharon Makhmour is an ecstatic writer and full of beautiful creative self-expression, she sent a bunch of beautiful, colorful and very playful video clips and Eva greatly enjoyed editing these into this very unique expression of her. This is what she wants to share about herself:
Hello all relatives,
I am just Sharon. No one, not any one specific. Just a mare humble radicle/particle circumambulating this vast universe. Happy go lucky. Have hopes and dreams like everyone else, even all creatures big and small. I don’t quite understand how, when, why, who, what, where I have been before how I got here. I am here now. Life understands though. Life understands me quite well and knows more of me than I know of myself. Was there really a past, I honor, and validate, acknowledge, all that had happened to me. Then had completely surrendered to the Universe, in humility and submission. As I am now, couldn’t do on my own any longer. The pain, trials, tribulations, tests, difficulties, suffering, hurt torment, cruelty, torture, persecutions, horror, had encapsulated me from birth to just a few months ago. Life is so short, just a twinkle of an eye. And it’s over, so suddenly as I had come into being. I actually feel humbled by my life’s experience, no resentment, or unhappiness, instead I feel joy, bliss, contentment, love for all, everyone, everything combined. Still wounded, fragile, injured, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, scarred. But not broken. Thank you Eva for allowing me this opportunity to do this video, which I tremendously enjoyed doing. A loving shout out, to my sister Suzie for her patience, and tolerance with me as her responsibility was quite large, videotaping all scenes. I am writing a memoir of my life, I have poetry to publish, I wish to have a movie made of my life, still so much work to do to fulfill my destiny, my calling. As my life has been written in the stars already. My story, book, movie etc………God only knows, what comes next………..baby steps, to take. As I recover and heal. One Love, One Love to all. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I will in turn for you. Peace, Love, Joy, Unity, Justice, Harmony for all, and everything. God Bless.
Namaste🙏
Sharon💖

The Peace Ambassadors of Pakistan and Eva found each other on Facebook. They are a beautiful group of people supporting positive Interfaith relations between the many religious groups in Pakistan: Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians to list the main ones. They also support children’s education in slums just to mention another aspect of the beautiful work they do. Rahila translated the Universal Prayer for Peace into Urdu and Honey wrote the song. Zohaib was instrumental in the co-creation of this beautiful contribution in which altogether 10 Peace Ambassadors were involved.

Ayaz and Eva connected through their love for poetry of the heart on Facebook. Ayaz describes himself as a humble off-road mystic, prefereing to keep a low profile. Eva had the idea to create a poetic dance between one of Ayaz’s poems and ‘The Universal Prayer for Peace’. This co-creative cross-continental collaboration dancing as one heart in Bristol and Karachi simultaneously was beautifully woven together by Sundara’s music. She specifically improvised to the final edit of the film.

Ligia and Suely are both involved in the Brazilian branch of the Caravan of Unity. Suely is a therapist, and loves writing poetry and taking photographs . Ligia and her translated the poem into Portuguese and Suely recited it beautifully and sent stunning photographs from her home country alongside the soundtrack. Eva turned the photos into a slide show to go along with it. So this is another joyful cross-continental collaboration.

Roseanna or Rosie as her friends call her is the youngest member of the global online One Heart Community and she lives in Wales. She is 9 years old and Eva and her have enjoyed regular One Heart one-to-one sessions on zoom. Rosie also takes part in immersive zoom spaces with the adults. She has a very natural understanding of oneness and the mystery of life. Eva wanted to know once in a session if people ever asked her who she really was, and she laughed and said: “no, they just ask for my name!”
If you have a child that shows a movement to creative expression of embodied oneness get in touch. It would be wonderful to grow a global children’s group in the online One Heart Community and obviously, more adults from all around the world are very welcome to join us, too.

Roseanna’s grandmother sent us the beautiful recitation of the Universal Prayer for Peace in Welsh.

When Adrienne and him married some of their dear family members brought the Universal Prayer for Peace to their wedding ceremony. At some point Eva had a delightfully funny rehearsal video in her mailbox. She loved playing with the juxtaposition of unedited playfulness and the serene presentation of the poem during the wedding. Time for giggles and laughter and playfull open heartness from as far away from Europe as physically possible.

Being in the facilitator role in this amazing project was an enormous gift and totally inspired Eva to explore the Universal Prayer for Peace in the context of her own creative and spiritual journey and to contribute a piece to the co-creative magical totality of contributions. As a teenager she was often bored at school. Being in a very liberal Grammar School in Germany she was allowed to pull her sketch book out in most lessons. Her English teacher even said she could have paints and brushes on her desk during the lessons in exchange for one of the images at the end of the school year. As you see, she still learned English well enough… interestingly enough separation and oneness was a strong underlying theme for Eva in these times and also in art prep school that she attended before strudying Fine Art at University. In hindsight she loves these images as they were just what came without being too tainted by what happens to be seen as art at any given time in human history.
Originally Eva had two ideas to make one video just with the art work and the poem and then there was to be a collaboartion with Jerome Calyster, who is an incredibly accomplished musician in Delhi. The dance footage in this film is from an attempt to collaborate on zoom, where Jerome is playing flute and Eva dances and recites the Universal Prayer for Peace in response. Due to a technical mistake on Eva’s side the footage wasn’t usable in this context, but Jerome’s presence and Eva’s response to his invocation of deep being at heart has very much supported this film invisibly. Jerome and Eva will have another go at collaborating on their idea soon. In the meantime you can enjoy Jerome’s music, here: https://youtu.be/7dIAqz49xh4
Eva is also especially grateful to Linsay Treen, who gave permission to edit this film to her immesnly beautiful musical piece called ‘Heart to Heart’. You can buy the song here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Heart-to/dp/B01AXPEG92
