Native American Elders GAthering

Hello my friends
Just a remeinder that next weekend is the 21st annual
Native American Elders' Gathering at Sunray peace village
in Lincoln Vermont. It is a camping weekend, teachings
begin Friday morning at 10am, so if you are traveling any
distance you might want to arrive Thursday night to set up
camp. I hope to arrive Thursday night. If you think you
might come pop me an email so that I can save a spot for us
all, our own little tribe. This will be my 8th year at the
gathering. It fills my soul and I would not miss it!

21st Annual Native American Elders’ Gathering
At Odali Utugi “Hope Mountain”

July 29, 30, 31, 2005
Elders' Workshops continuing on August 1, 2, 2005
Work-study is available

The Annual Elders’ Gathering is a multicultural celebration
where people of many nations come together to pray, share
and study ways that we can contribute to peacemaking in the
world.

Each year we return to the sacred fire in the Arbor of the
Peace Village to listen as Native Elders speak about
ancient teachings and prophecies that will help prepare for
the years to come.

THE TWENTY-FIRST ELDERS GATHERING HAS A POWERFUL
SIGNIFICANCE

The theme of the weekend teachings is: “Manifesting Clear
Intention in Multidimensional Realms”. The twenty-first
year is a significant time for Cherokees as it provides an
opportunity to move through each set of seven years, which
takes us into another dimension of consciousness.

The 21st Annual Native American Elder’s Gathering is a
celebration with an opportunity to recognize and observe
the dance of the Galaxies in multidimensionality.

The Annual Elders’ Gathering is a non-profit event hosted
by Sunray, the Peace Village Land Trust, and the Venerable
Dhyani Ywahoo, Chief of the Green Mountain Ani Yun Wiwa
(Cherokee) and Spiritual Leader of Sunray and the Peace
Village Land Trust.
