World Peace and Prayer Day

World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites Day June 19-22nd, 2014. Bowdin Park Wappingers Falls, New York

“All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer”

With the blessing and guidance of Chief Arvol Looking Horse — 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Pipe Bundle and recognized spiritual leader of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Sioux Nation; we are delighted to announce the 19th annual World Peace and Prayer Day will be celebrated this year in the majestic Hudson Valley — New York, June 18-21 2014.

World Peace and Prayer Day—also known as, Honoring Sacred Sites Day, was envisioned and brought forth by Chief Looking Horse as a day to join worldwide communities and people of all races, ages, genders, and faiths, who share concern for the welfare of the Earth and humanity. Honoring-ceremonies, invocation and prayer are practiced and observed in collaboration with local indigenous representatives. Special guest speakers, wisdom keepers and activists of all denominations share spiritual insight and discuss important environmental concerns and cures—on both a local and global level. This profoundly auspicious time is elevated by a cross-cultural celebration of music, dance, and storytelling.

Sacred Sites are acknowledged by all Nations around the world as places holding unique geographical, spiritual, historical and often mythological significance. These places of worship—intended to unite people in peace, can all too easily become a source of power struggle, greed and environmental abuse. It is by no coincidence that places where the Earth vibrates with magnified energy, also commonly align with rich pockets of Earth’s greatest natural resources. Therefore, the importance of protecting sacred sites and educating people about the value of restoring them to balance, reaches beyond the realm of spiritual ideals and directly into the impact their restoration has, on the health of the environment.

Unity through prayer. We have come to a crossroads in our evolution on this planet, when it is vital, despite our differences, to unify our minds and hearts for the well being of all. For this reason World Peace and Prayer Day has traveled around the world to actively bring people together drawing attention to the relevance of sacred sites in this 21st century.
