David Arms ~ Holistic Wellness Alignment
Topic: Life Lessons vs Life Mishaps

 
Saturday, October 11
10am-11:30 am
 
 
We come here to this existence to learn lessons and grow closer to our creator. Lessons are set into our life path to assist us in achieving many things but mostly our life purpose. They are designed to make sure we learn certain things. Life mishaps just sort of happen due to things we don’t understand about how we create our lives. They sometimes teach us things to help us in our existence but they were not intentionally put into our paths for a reason. These are things we have created or we have allowed to be created for ourselves.

Presentation fee $25. Individual sessions, $50, scheduled after, (sessions are 45-60 minutes.) For more information contact Patti MacFee at 865-250-1988
 
What is Holistic Wellness Alignment?

Trauma, emotional and mental stress, false belief systems and other blocks to our personal growth can be stored in the energy fields of our bodies, impacting our ability to function at our full potential and to lead happy, fulfilling lives.

HWA is a gentle and non-invasive method of healing. HWA treats the WHOLE PERSON. When the emotional causes that are behind most physical issues are cleared, the body starts to heal itself. Even injuries find improvements from getting rid of emotional trauma. Clients invariably report immediate feelings of change, lightness, well-being and relaxation, yet the healing effects can continue for several days as the energy integrates and toxins are released.

For how many months would you like this to recur?
(including this payment)


 
We are asking for sponsorship through monthly donations.
 
These donations do not need to be large but if those who love the Center for Peace could help by committing a few dollars on a monthly basis it could be the difference between always hoping that someday we will be able to build or provide those needed areas (i.e. showers, sleeping areas, restrooms) and actually making it happen.
 
If you have participated in any of the programs, offerings, and events that occur on an ongoing basis at the Center for Peace you have already felt the personal blessings from these activities. Our mission is to be a Spiritual Center for our community which extends to anyone open to this learning path.
 
 
 MONTHLY
Monthly Sweat Lodges
 
Saturday Lodge
 
October 4th
~led by William Charles Patterson
 
fire starts @ 10:00 am

go in lodge about 11:30
 
Thursday Lodge
 
October 16th
fire starts @ 5:00 pm

go in lodge about 6:30
 
~led by Steve Citty
 
Please arrive as early as 1 hour prior to lodge time to help with the process of covering the lodge.
 
  
 
A sweat lodge or "Purification Lodge", is an intensely rewarding experience. By entering the womb of Mother Earth (the lodge), we seek purification and a deeper spiritual awareness through prayer.
 
Generally speaking the experience is to deepen spiritual awareness. The steam, heat, and darkness intensify prayers and personal introspection. The lodge leader (pourer), with help from the fire tender, hold an energetic space of safety and security while setting the intent of the lodge. The medicine of the lodge leader and of each participant helps to enrich the lessons of the lodge.
 
There are composting toilets in the meadow. You may change clothes in these toilets or at the Peace Sound Chamber. There is no nudity in our lodges.
 
Suggested Items to Bring:
  • Two Towels
  • Men are requested to wear swim trunks, gym shorts or something similar.
  • Women are requested to wear a skirt or dress. (Something for inside the sweat that is modest and you don’t mind getting muddy.)
  • Change of clothes (Preferably long sleeve and covers all of the legs to keep from getting the feast area dirty).
  • Covered Dish for the Feast.
It is appropriate to bring tobacco, a small gift, or monetary gift for the fire-keeper and lodge master, both of whom offer their services to the people as a gift.
 
Cash donations are used to support the Sweat Lodge. We use lots of wood for the fire; supplies like herbs (sage, tobacco, cornmeal, etc.), drinking water, and more. If you are feeling abundant, a donation would be appreciated. (Typically $10-$20)

There is never a charge for Ceremony. If you are not feeling abundant, PLEASE do not allow this to prevent you from coming.
 
Chanting in the Chamber

CHANTING IN THE CHAMBER
Sunday October 5th

1:00 pm
 
On Sunday October 5th we will gather at the Peace Sound Chamber at the Center For Peace in Seymour, Tennessee to chant.
 
The Peace Sound Chamber which was inspired by the vision of Joseph Rael, is one in a worldwide network of chambers.
 
These chambers were constructed to assist in the healing of Mother Earth by "injecting" the vibration of the people chanting into the energetically connected web of the chambers around the world.
 
What to Bring:
  • An open heart and mind.
  • Comfortable clothing (Ladies please wear skirts.Skirts are recommended for both men and women. Men may wear a ceremonial belt instead.)
  • Water
Please arrive on time.
 
The focus this month will be on the Chant for Autumn.
 
Chant for the Autumn:
Paah-Cho = The Harvest
Paah
P = the Sound of the Heart
aah = to wash, to purify, to bring to the highest clarity
 
Cho: everywhere
C = beauty
Ho = heavenly lessons that are now ready to be understood, so that the heart of pure clarity can be fused with the beauty of all the heavenly planes, so that childlike innocence can be achieved.
 
 
 
 
 
 
"Chanting is how we enter into the eternal now. The energetic vibrations of our voices bond us to the spiritual light made of memory, and of now, and of future, for we are the light of universal intelligence. As we chant the Universe speaks to us in metaphoric images.

The chanter is the cosmic universe in miniature. The person chanting is the embodiment of the earth and sky. When chanting, I start by pretending the in breath is the sky energy, and the out-breath is the earth energy. The highest nerve center is located at the voice center, the place in the human anatomy where the sky and earth in the human anatomy are connected. Sound vibration connects the mind, body and spirit, and makes the physical body whole."

excerpts from Joseph Rael's book "Being and Vibration"
 
Monthly Fire Ceremony
 Fire Ceremony
 (monthly)
 
October 7th - 6:45 pm
 
~ led by Katy Koontz
 
The purpose of the FIRE CEREMONY is to heal and purify both the planet’s physical oceans and the oceans of cosmic thought.
 
At 7 pm local time, fire elders light ceremonial fires at each of the Peace Sound Chambers around the world. Those present watch the fire in silence until it burns out, giving to it what we want to transmute in our lives and staying open to the messages and teachings it brings.
 
All are welcome. We suggest you arrive around 6:45 pm.
 
Donations are appreciated.
WEEKLY
Drumming, Meditation and Channeling
DRUMMING, MEDITATION, AND CHANNELING
Tuesdays 7-8:30pm
 
~led by Perry Robinson
 
On the 7th, we will all gather for the fire ceremony prior to the evening meeting.
 
Shift happens . . . . and one of them took place a couple of months ago (July 29).
 
Suddenly, Perry had a very familiar feeling in a powerful way. The Guides, who have always been present with him, suddenly "filled him up" with a feeling that, he needed to let them speak. So he did; and the last two Tuesdays' "Messiah Training" have been different.

For those who were not around at that time: for about fifteen years ['89 - '04], Drumming, Meditation, and Channeling took place most every week at the Center. We would drum for a while, then drift into a silent meditation. Soon the Guides would begin to speak . . . and the words were helpful to all . . . including Perry.
 
In 2004, after a traffic incident, Perry felt the Guides' support of him stepping back for a time. So for over ten years a small group has "done other things" . . . book studies, spiritual practices, special interest focuses, shamanic introduction, and -- more recently -- "Messiah Training". Last Tuesday [Aug. 5] the "Messiah Training" group decided to accept this shift and "let's see where it takes us".
 
So, here we go. All are invited to attend. Bring your favorite drum [we will have a few extras here, if you do not have one to play], an open mind, and a supportive heart. In the spirit of "my job is to show up", let's see what happens. You will know if you need to be here.
 
An opportunity will be given for other Guides to speak as well.

Out of respect for time, let's come early to socialize, so we can start on time
