6th Interfaith World Peace Pilgrimage to Mount Baldy

By Rev. Paul Nugent, Director of The Aetherius Society


“There is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.” 

— A Mayan elder

On Saturday September 6, hundreds of people from many different spiritual faiths will be hiking Mount Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains to take part in a spiritual pilgrimage dedicated to World Peace. The pilgrimage is open to everyone and is an opportunity for the people of southern California to come together in an open space and pray for peace.

Located 50 miles east of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Mountains, Mount Baldy has been considered sacred by the Tungva and San Gabrieleno Native Americans for generations, and for the last 55 years members of The Aetherius Society and the organizers of the event, have been trekking up its slopes in the belief that Mount Baldy is one of nineteen mountains around the world containing uplifting spiritual energy for humanity to access at this pivotal time of global upheaval and transformation.

Pilgrims take a scenic ride on the 20-minute ski-lift from the parking lot at the end of Mount Baldy road to the restaurant area at about 7,600 ft.

Each location will have a ceremony is held with leaders from a variety of faiths conducting an interfaith service. It is a wonderfully interactive experience allowing for mystical reflection, fellowship and the joyous feeling that comes from being of service to all mankind in the heart of nature.

For more details, visit or call The Aetherius Society at (323) 465-9652. There is no charge except the cost of the ski-lift. (Approx. $15)
