If you want to dance this year,
PAY WHAT YOU CAN
 
2020 was a difficult year for many of us. The Center For Peace was not able to hold any of our normal events which fund the operation of the Center. Our MAIN goal with the SunMoon Dance is to fill the arbor with as many dancers as possible.
 
We believe that by doing the work, sustenance will flow to us.
 

 

 
"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."
~ echoes of the cliff
 
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.
 
 
Joseph established a requested give away of $750 for the dancers.
No one who is called to dance will be turned away because they cannot pay the requested give away. 
 
The dance leader offers a Work Exchange Program as one way to provide your give away. Additionally there are scholarships available to assure that if you are called to dance there will be a place for you in the arbor.
 
Come and dance!
 
For information on these programs, contact Steve Citty.
Phone: (865) 300-4424 (this is my work phone so please leave a message or simply send a text message including your name.)

Work Day

SunMoon Dance
 
Saturday, July 3rd

The work that we will focus on includes mowing and weed-eating the meadow, weeding the house gardens, sweeping out the breezeway, prepping the composting toilets, cleaning and straightening the Sound Chamber, prepping wood (moving and stacking), and making sure our supplies such as sage, tarps, sheets and towels are in order.
 
If you are a work exchange participant, this is the time to get that done.
 
Please bring comfortable, protective clothing and shoes, work gloves, sunscreen, bug repellant, a water bottle, and a dish to share for lunch. All ages are welcome and encouraged to join in this “work is worship” event!

Please let us know if you can make it so we can plan accordingly. We hope to see you there!

Work Day
for
Install Shingles on Arbor
 
Date to be Announced
 
 
Work began in March work was begun on the arbor roof. New roof decking was installed and weakened rafters, etc were replaced. Water/Ice shield was installed over all of the decking.
 
The arbor is now ready for shingles. On June 26th we have a group of workers coming from Mr Handyman of West Knoxville will be here to do the major portion of the work. Helpers will be needed to help get the work done.
 
Monthly Fire Ceremony ~ July 7th
 
Fire Ceremony
 
 Wednesday, July 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.
