Peace Village Festival at Jackson Wellsprings, August 24, 25, 26
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. This village is being
conceived and built with peace, sustainability, and respect as its guiding principles. All Peace organizations and Sustainability groups in the area are invited to join in this endeavor. All religious and spiritual groups and
community organizations are also invited. Local towns and businesses will be offered opportunities to be involved through booths and sponsorships. And an invitation will go 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.
