Out Beyond Ideas - Songs for Peace Project music by David Wilcox

image“Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field; I’ll meet you there…” This benefit album, Out Beyond Ideas, is a collection of ancient mystic poems by Rumi, St John of The Cross, Yehuda HaLevi, and Dogen Kigen, to name but a few, drawn from across the world’s major faith traditions, and made into songs by David Wilcox and Nance Pettit. The project benefits the Partners in Conflict and Partners in Peacebuilding Project at The Center for International Development and Conflict Management, based out of the University of Maryland. This project works to end intractable conflicts around the world through new and innovative person to person diplomacy.
