First established in 2009, the International Bali Mediators Festival (IBMF) returns to Ubud September 20-23. 2012.
Headquartered at the Museum Puri Lukisan, this years IBMF adopts the theme up “One Earth One Sky One Humankind; Towards Global Peace & Interfaith Harmony through Meditation.”
During the course of the Festival, Peace One Day will be marked on September 21, 2012 as part of a simultaneous worldwide celebration of peace.
The organizing committee of IBMF paid a call on Bali governor, Made Mangku Pastika, on February 22, 2012, to brief the island’s Chief Executive on the goals of the conference and the audience from around the world it will attract.
In welcoming the continuing commitment of the organizers, Pastika said the IBMF benefits not only the meditators but also people living around the conference. Pastika also expects that the event will contribute to the idea of spiritual tourism in Bali. He believes that spiritual tourism is a better option than forms of religious tourism. There would be an increasing number of seekers visiting a place where they can quench their spiritual thirst and find the true happiness. Bali could be that place, he insisted.
As in past years, the International Bali Meditators’ Festival (IBMF) is expected to attract over 1,000 participants from around the world. Planned activities include seminars, workshops on meditation, an evening of devotion, special events, family events, and a bazaar.
