Monthly Fire Ceremony ~ November 7th
Thursday, November 7th
~ 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.
Come to the fire ceremony if you enjoy focused meditation, if you are looking for new ideas and insights, if you seek to release and transmute something that does not serve you, if you want to join in the service of healing the oceans (both physical and cosmic) or if you’re simply called to participate in a ceremony that honors this powerful elemental force.
We suggest you arrive by 6:45 pm.
All are welcome.
Donations are appreciated.
Huna Voyager Workshop
November 23rd & 24th
Center For Peace
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.
The Huna Voyager Course is an introduction to the basics of Hawaiian Shamanism as practiced by the Kahili family of Kauai. Huna is the Hawaiian adventurer system of shamanism, also known as Kapua. The Huna Voyager course is a direct experience, hands on course, in which you will learn practical techniques to apply in your daily life. The participants will develop a strong understanding of the philosophy and concepts of Hawaiian Shamanism. Topics covered
This is the first in a series of courses in the Kahili family Kupua tradition of Huna.
- The 7 principles of Huna
- The 3 selves
- The 4 levels of reality, and how to travel between them
- Shamanic divination
- Shamanic Dreaming
- Shamanic Journeying
- Basics of Shamanic Healing for yourself and others
Shaman is a word originating from the Tungusic people of Siberia. This term has been borrowed by anthropologists to describe a type of healer. This type of healer uses various techniques to heal others. A shaman often brings about healing by empowering an individual and helping them change their beliefs. A Shaman is said to be able to talk to the elements nature and spirits to help with healing. The goal of the shaman is healing.
Lee Sinnot will be the facilitator for this Huna
Lee has practiced and studied the Huna Kupua Tradition as taught by Serge Kahili King. He found that it matched his own beliefs and provided a practical and effective system to heal himself and help others become who they want to be.
Lee’s journey into Huna began in 2013 and after years of study and practice Lee is in the process of becoming an Alakai (ordained minister) of the Kahili Family tradition. As part of his ministry Lee decided to begin his dream of sharing these beautiful traditions with those who wanted to learn.

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.
|2019 Dances at the Center For Peace|
Beginning in the early 1980's Joseph Rael ~ Beautiful Painted Arrow, a Visionary and Mystic of the Ute and Tiwa Pueblo people, began traveling the world sharing his Vision of Peace Sound Chambers and his insights about the healing power of Ceremony.
To assist people seeking personal experiences in the Spiritual realm, he began leading sacred, non-traditional Dances that Spirit brought to him in Visions. For 15 years he traveled the world leading three sacred Dances which came to him in Visions: the Long Dance, Drum Dance and Sun-Moon Dance.
Since Joseph's retirement in 1997 the work has grown and many of Joseph’s students, with his blessing, have now received Visions of different Dances of their own.
