PEACE TALKS ~ April 2020

 
COVID-19
  COVID-19 affects us all:
 
April 4th Sweat Lodge - The lodge will be held, however it is NOT open for any attendees. Only the lodge leader and the firekeeper will be on the grounds. Because the lodges bring us into very close proximity to each other and we all breathe the same air in the lodge, it is not a safe practice in this time for there to be any participants. 
It is important to hold this ceremony at this time, but it is not in anyone's interest to hold the lodge in an open way.
 
Tuesday, April 7th Fire Ceremony - Katy Koontz, the Fire Elder at the Center has determined that the Monthly Fire Ceremony will continued as scheduled. The ceremony is held outside and there is enough space to maintain 6' separation between participants.
 
Future events - Determination for future events will be made as we draw closer to the events.

April 4th

2020
Led by: Sarah Franklin
Firekeeper: Hannah Dunemann
Lodge Elder: Steve Citty
 
 
As is custom for us, we will hold sweat lodge on the first Saturday of this month. However, in respect of current happenings, we will hold a closed lodge with only the Pourer and Fire Keeper.

We ask that you join this lodge in your own way in your own space as this lodge will not be open to join physically.

Lodge will begin promptly at 12:00 Eastern so that you can keep in time with us. The lodge will last for one hour.
Monthly Fire Ceremony ~ April 7th
 
Fire Ceremony
 
 Tuesday, April 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.
 
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.

Friends of the Center
 
 
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.
