From their website, “Global Vision for Peace was launched in 2003 by Designer-Developer Xorin Balbes and national journalist Cliff Rothman as a non-profit manifesting entity, using our platform of visibility and breadth of connections in media, the arts, philanthropy, Hollywood, government and activism – and the belief in what can be – to propel positive change on the planet.”

This event, just three nights before the 76th Annual Academy Awards®, was held at the Lloyd Wright designed Sowden House in Los Angeles to kick off the weekend festivities for the organization. Sowden House was designed by Lloyd Wright and built in 1926 for his friend and photographer John Sowden. It’s Mayan architecture complimented by gardens, water fountains and meditation spaces make for a unique event location that is a haven from the busy surroundings of Los Angeles.

Serving as a launch event for Global Vision For Peace, celebrities like Sharon Stone delivered messages from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, The Honorable Mikhail Gorbachev and others.
