Imagine a village birthed from our shared visions, deep longings, and ancestral memories of what could be, holding a resonance of peace that informs, inspires, and activates all who enter.
Preparations are being made for three-day festival, workshops, and discussions on peace, justice and sustainability, August 24, 25, 26 at Jackson Wellsprings in Ashland Oregon.
The Peace Village Festival is a kid-friendly event honoring our elders. This village is being conceived and built with peace, sustainability, and respect as its guiding principles.
All area Peace organizations and Sustainability groups are invited to join in this endeavor. All religious and spiritual groups and community organizations are also invited. Local communities and businesses will be involved through booths and sponsorships.
The groups involved represent a diverse range of interests and priorities, but share a common vision for peace, social justice to empower people, foster protect wildlife environments, and work to create sustainable communities.
The desire is for the involvement of the whole community, for people of good will from all walks of life, all ages, all lifestyles, all paths and persuasions to come together in the spirit of peace.
And an invitation goes out to everyone in the valley and in the hills to come and experience and participate in Peace Village, to take part in conversations about peace, to join in wisdom circles, to listen to the wise words of the elders and the youth, to take classes at the Multi-versity, to browse and shop at the village bazaar, to hear wondrous music, to learn and teach, to share and converse, to dance and play, and to celebrate.
The event will be kid friendly on every level, and will honor our elders. The desire is for the involvement of the whole community, for people of good will from all walks of life, all ages, all lifestyles, all paths and persuasions to come together in the spirit of peace. For through us, Peace Prevails, and ripples forth in all directions.
