One Person Can Make a Difference . . .

Two People Can Bring the World Together

In a bold and innovative effort to heal a wounded world, two Sausalito, California residents - Marcia Jaffe and Wilford Welch - are organizing the Quest for Global Healing Conference (QGH) - a unique gathering focusing on "Inspiring Actions for World Renewal," to be held in Ubud, Bali from May 3-8, 2006.

All Star Line Up

Arguably, it could only happen in Bali. Imagine bringing together a former President of Indonesia - KH Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur) who heads an organization of 40 million Muslims in conversation with Nobel Peace Laureate Rev. Desmond Tutu and ordinary citizens from around the world. Also slated to come to Ubud to join the dialogue are Afghanistan activist Fatima Gailani, Bhutan Cultural Minister Lyonpo Thinley, a Balinese Prince, a group of Indonesian women social activists, corporate executives, authors, and film makers from around the world.

"We expect more than 500 participants from all walks of life, of all ages and cultures from more than 22 countries. People coming are ready to use their talents, skills and resources towards exploring new ways to address such global issues as extreme poverty, human rights abuses and environmental challenges; issues they are passionate about," says Marcia Jaffe, conference visionary and co-director of QGH.Both Jaffe and Welch firmly believe that something profound is being born in the world today– a recognition that, in their words, "the wounds of the planet can be healed by individuals of vision and commitment."

“We believe that there are people everywhere on this planet that are ready to up their personal commitment to be part of the change they want to see," Jaffe says.

Baby Boomers Blend With Generation 2006!

This one-of-a-kind conference is intended to encourage and inspire intergenerational and multicultural dialogue. More than fifty youths, ages 17-30, will be among the attendees, coming from Indonesia, Kenya, Tunisia, India, Nigeria, Peru, Norway, Australia, South Africa and other countries.

The organizers see the world's youth as offering a new sense of vision and empowerment. "Youth are critically important to social activism and we have committed to finding funds so that young leaders can participate fully with all generations present," says Welch. Included in the Bali gathering will be eight young Africans identified by Desmond Tutu as the future leaders of that continent.

Traveling to Bali from the four corners of the world, the youth participants are being asked two questions: "What is the world that you are inheriting?" and "What are you prepared to do about it?"

Corporate Collaboration Mixed with Global Healing

Members of the global business community are also coming to Bali to join in the discussions. Included will be the former head of Intel Asia, US-based Interaction Associates, Inc., South East Asian executives, managers, and others members of the international business community.

Together they will discuss: What roles can the business world effectively play with governments of developing countries, NGOs, non-profits and entrepreneurs that will provide sustainable growth to the world's poorest people, make the world safer and more stable, and expand and protect free markets?

First Ever Global Healing Film Festival

In addition to the workshops, the Conference will also host the first ever Global Healing Film Festival. Produced by Damani Baker, named by Filmmaker magazine as one of the "25 new faces of independent film," the festival will include feature films, shorts, and documentaries from around the world that speak to the celebration of the human spirit and the quest for environmental, social and spiritual healing.

Also not to be missed will be the participation of Balinese dancers, artists, poets, photographers and artisans who will perform and exhibit their works on the theme of global healing. An exhibition of local Balinese artists will be opening at the ARMA Museum in conjunction with the Conference.
