Monthly Fire Ceremony
 
Fire Ceremony
 Wednesday, December 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 elder's 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.

2023 Long Dance
 
January 14th – January 15th, 2023
Led by Katy Koontz & Colby McLemore– Dance Chiefs
 

"In the Long Dance of life. . .
every step forward awakens three opportunities for the human:

one:  placement in eternity,
two:  purification of past forms, and
three:  new opportunities for adventure;
for in the instance of eternal time the new always refreshes and cleanses."

~ Beautiful Painted Arrow
(Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow, is a mystic, visionary, poet, and artist of Southern Ute and Picuris Pueblo decent who has taken his teaching around the world. Pursuing a vision that he experienced many years ago, Joseph inspired the development of some 60 Peace Sound Chambers all over the globe. The Long Dance is another of his many visions.)
Are you tired of fighting with what seems to be your fate? Or maybe you have a vision and would like help manifesting it. The Long Dance is a powerful ceremony for focusing your intention to create your future and then dancing into it. This dance was the vision of Native American elder Joseph Rael, Beautiful Painted Arrow, who chiefed this dance for many years before releasing it to new chiefs upon his retirement, assuring that his powerful gift would continue blessing the People.
The Long Dance takes place inside the Peace Sound Chamber at night, a fertile time to bring forth associations and receive guidance from the subconscious. The dancers begin by moving sunward in a circle around the chamber as the drummers’ drum in the sacred center, continuing to drum in one long, uninterrupted round throughout the dance. As the beat of the drum reverberates against the walls, the chamber itself becomes a drum, and the dancers’ feet the drumbeaters. As the dance continues into the night, the dancers go deeper and deeper into a meditative state, dancing their intentions for the future while reflecting on their past.

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.
