"Llandudno beach is just south of Cape Town, SA. I took this photograph on a rock outcropping just north of the beach in 1999, a few days before attending the Parliament of the World’s Religions. Having recently arrived in South Africa, I was feeling a bit displaced. Fortunately, I ran into my friend Pieter, a South African native, with whom I had worked on several interfaith events back home in Colorado. He took me on a tour of the Cape Peninsula, and the beautiful gift of nature helped to ground my energy and prepare me for the amazing gathering of spirit seekers that lay ahead. This photo has come to symbolize the experience of the Parliament for me; full of excitement in the presence of the power of greatness, the potential of something wondrous and possibly overwhelming, yet greatly stimulating and deeply enriching." — Steve Rohrbach

Steve Rohrbach was the official photographer of the 1999 Parliament of the World's Religions in Cape Town. He works with Common Spirit, promoting inspiring interfaith and intergenerational gatherings. Visit their web site at www.commonspirit.org.
