2021
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Led by: Nan Citty
Firekeeper: Paradise Kirkland
Lodge elder: Steve Citty
 
As we work through what we hope are the end days of the pandemic, we decided that in place of the sweat lodge this month, we are holding a steam blessing purification lodge. This event will be held at the site of the sweat lodge. The lodge will not be covered and the participants will sit around the outside. each person will have a sheet to cover themselves with and a hot stone to provide heat and steam. Nan will lead the lodge and guide us through the blessing. There will be drumming, songs and prayers.
 
 
There will be a community meal (potluck) after the ceremony. Please bring a dish that you can share. You are welcome to the meal whether you have food to bring or not.
 
For information call or text: Steve Citty 65-300-4424
 
Monthly Fire Ceremony ~ November 7th
 
Fire Ceremony
 
 Sunday, November 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.
