David Arms ~ Holistic Wellness Alignment
Topic: Physical versus Spiritual

Saturday, March 14th
10am-11:30 am


"We find ourselves caught up in life and our physical battles, never really looking for the answers for how we acquired them. Everything in our world is spiritual in nature. We create our existence on every level. Once we realize the magnitude of our creating, that will change to something more desired by us, but till then, we keep creating with every thought as if we were not.. Many feel they didn’t create what they battle. Maybe for most it is hard to remember the thoughts of yesterday, let alone the day before. The energies put into our thinking about everyday things is usually not monitored much. It comes in and then out of our head without much attention being paid to what we think about."
~David Arms

$25.00 presentation fee applies to individual session with David.
Individual sessions - $50, scheduled after, (sessions are 45-60 minutes.)
What is Holistic Wellness Alignment?

Trauma, emotional and mental stress, false belief systems and other blocks to our personal growth can be stored in the energy fields of our bodies, impacting our ability to function at our full potential and to lead happy, fulfilling lives.

HWA is a gentle and non-invasive method of healing. HWA treats the WHOLE PERSON.

Monthly Sweat Lodges

Saturday Lodge
Lodge on 
March 7th
The weather that we have had and expect this coming week has saturated the meadow and the area around the lodge itself.  In the interest of "Walking Gently" on our land, we have decided to cancel the lodge which was scheduled for Saturday March 7.

Thursday Night Lodge
March 19th
fire starts @ 5:00 pm

go in lodge about 6:30 pm
Led by: Steve Citty
Please arrive as early as 1 hour prior to lodge time to help with the process of covering the lodge.
A sweat lodge or "Purification Lodge", is an intensely rewarding experience. By entering the womb of Mother Earth (the lodge), we seek purification and a deeper spiritual awareness through prayer.
Generally speaking the experience is to deepen spiritual awareness. The steam, heat, and darkness intensify prayers and personal introspection. The lodge leader (pourer), with help from the fire tender, hold an energetic space of safety and security while setting the intent of the lodge. The medicine of the lodge leader and of each participant helps to enrich the lessons of the lodge.
There are composting toilets in the meadow. You may change clothes in these toilets or at the Peace Sound Chamber. There is no nudity in our lodges.
Suggested Items to Bring:
  • Two Towels
  • Men are requested to wear swim trunks, gym shorts or something similar.
  • Women are requested to wear a skirt or dress. (Something for inside the sweat that is modest and you don’t mind getting muddy.)
  • Change of clothes (Preferably long sleeve and covers all of the legs to keep from getting the feast area dirty).
  • Covered Dish for the Feast.
It is appropriate to bring tobacco, a small gift, or monetary gift for the fire-keeper and lodge master, both of whom offer their services to the people as a gift.
Cash donations are used to support the Sweat Lodge. We use lots of wood for the fire; supplies like herbs (sage, tobacco, cornmeal, etc.), drinking water, and more. If you are feeling abundant, a donation would be appreciated. (Typically $10-$20)
Information: Steve Citty (865) 300-4424
There is never a charge for Ceremony. If you are not feeling abundant, PLEASE do not allow this to prevent you from coming.
Monthly Fire Ceremony
 Fire Ceremony
March 7th - 6:45 pm
~ led by Katy Koontz
In the interest of "Walking Gently" on our land;
Please DO NOT park or drive in the meadow.
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.
All are welcome. We suggest you arrive around 6:45 pm.
Donations are appreciated.
Drumming, Meditation and Channeling
We will drum for a while, then drift into a silent meditation. The Guides, with which Perry works, will begin to speak.
All are invited to attend. Bring your favorite drum [we will have a few extras here, if you do not have one to play], an open mind, and a supportive heart. In the spirit of "my job is to show up", let's see what happens. You will know if you need to be here.
An opportunity will be given for other Guides to speak as well. Out of respect for time, let's come early to socialize, so we can start on time.
We suggest that you NOT pull up into the yard, but park generally between the big maple tree and the trailer.
The ground has been frozen for about two weeks and is thawing from the top down.  Snow as of now is still on the ground in the yard.  Newly thawed mud will be slicker than the snow has been.
Friends of the Center

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.
 Easter Sweat Lodge
Easter Morning
Sweat Lodge

Ahh Spring!
Easter is a time of renewal and rebirth. What a perfect time for a purification and celebration lodge.
The sweat lodge experience is an opportunity to deepen our awareness of our connection to God (Spirit).
The fire will start at 10am and we will go in the lodge when the rocks are hot (usually about an hour to an hour and a half).
There will be a potluck meal after the lodge, so bring a dish to share.
For more information on what to wear, and what to bring, visit our website page about the sweat lodge.
