Huna is a way of joining with life and relating to it as a participant who brings blessings. The teaching and practice of huna comes to us from Hawaii and deals more with mindsets and feelings than with course material and techniques. A kahuna is one who practices huna.
There are political kahunas, engineering kahunas, and medical kahunas, people who have assimilated the depths of their chosen fields of endeavor and are experts in applying what they know. Then there are the kahunas who simply walk in balance with all things and who use their insights and influence to restore all things to balance; they are the true healers; and it is their way of being upon which we will focus in this workshop.
Participants who wish to prepare ahead of time for this experience may study Serge Kahili King's book URBAN SHAMAN, which best explains what huna is and why it works. Listen to your heart and you will know if you need to attend.
Perry does not claim to be a kahuna, although he has walked this path for 27 years.
This will be a two-day workshop, 10 am to 5 pm each day. Participants need to bring food to share for a light lunch. Those from a distance too far to commute may arrange for motel nearby or to sleep in the Peace Sound Chamber [bring bed roll]. Suggested donation is $200.
The Sweat Lodge Ceremonies at the Center For Peace are "Purification Lodges" based in Native American tradition from the Pueblo and Ute People and we honor the ancestors and their teachings in the lodge.. We seek purification and a deeper spiritual awareness through prayer.

Thursday Night Lodge
Drumming and chanting combine with the steam, heat and darkness to intensify prayers and personal introspection. The lodge leader with help from the fire tender holds an energetic space of safety and security while setting the intent of the lodge and throughout the ceremony.

In the interest of "Walking Gently" on our land;
Please DO NOT park or drive in the meadow.
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.
Topic: Your health and where HWA
(the modality that David does) comes in.
Saturday, June 13th
“Our health is governed by our energy field. What is in that energy field is governed mostly by what emotions you feel. We don't spend time giving attention to our emotions, to acknowledge them and release them. We plow right through the situations that we encounter them through.
"Our physical bodies mimic our energy field, it is the guide that the body uses for health. My purpose here is to assist you in clearing these to improve your health, thus improving your quality of life. Simple, non-invasive process, but oh so effective. The session is private and very open without judgement (for those with sensitive issues)."
~ David Arms
$25.00 presentation fee applies to individual session with David.
Individual sessions, $50, scheduled after, (sessions are 45-60 minutes.)
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.

|Drumming, Meditation and Channeling|
DRUMMING, MEDITATION, AND CHANNELING
We will drum for a while, then drift into a silent meditation. The Guides, with which Perry works, will begin to speak.
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.
|2015 SunMoon Dance|
Center For Peace
led by: Steve Citty
Benito Rael will serve the people and the Dance as Drum Chief.
We are excited about Benito coming to share his beautiful energy and teachings through traditional Tiwa drumming.
The Tiwa chants that come from the Drum chiefed by Benito, bring an ancient vibration that can only be experienced at these dances. These chants are not used any other time.
2005 Interview with Benito
(thanks Sherry Sherry)
"Vibration moves in and through all things; is all things. At the physical essence of our existence, the atomic and sub-atomic levels, there is only vibration. We are vibration and we are constantly harmonizing with vibrations in our near presence. That is the magic of the dance. The Drum carries the vibration of the Tiwa chants of ancientness and we resonate with that vibration as we discover the potentialities of our own beingness and remember who we are."

We are grateful to Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow for his clarity, and courage and for his magnificent gift—this way of discovering our true relationship with and in all things, and ultimately, ourselves.
The SunMoon Dance comes from a vision of Oneness and Peace. Joseph brought this vision of the SunMoon Dance to the Center for Peace and many other dance locations around the world.
The Seymour SunMoon Dance is an intensely personal experience that allows the participants time to experience themselves as beings of light. There are no other responsibilities, and no facilitator describing the experience to you. It is your experience.
Spaces are beginning to fill up. If you plan to come to the dance as a dancer OR as a helper, register now.
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.
