8th Annual Drum for Peace
Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 3 to 6 pm
Cost: A donation for the Richmond Food Pantry of 1 can of food, a non-perishable food item or $1 (more is always welcome!)
Drum Facilitator: Nicolle Beckman — Our 8th Annual Wish For Peace!
This year we will again be participating in the global event, Earthdance, which is held at over 600 Locations in 80 countries. The Global Focus for 2014 is Transformation. This is a synchronized world event!
The Power to Effect Change
The “Butterfly Effect” (a term used in Chaos Theory) was the famous phrase chosen by scientists to demonstrate that the tiniest of variables have tremendous consequences. Something that seems as insignificant as the flap of one butterfly, when magnified over time and space can change the entire weather pattern across the globe. Imagine then, what you are capable of doing when you choose to focus on peace. Imagine again, the impact of many individuals focused together in peace circles using sacred sound, in synchronized global meditations for peace.
The truth is that together, we are powerful beyond measure. It is time for us to use our power wisely, that we may leave a legacy of peace for future generations. Held within the transition that we are now facing is the collective wisdom and divine grace to change the current direction we are heading in, to a more peaceful outcome. The power is in our hands, our hearts, and our knowing that with our spirits combined, all things are possible.
We Drum for Peace not just because of existing wars or the threats of war. Our drumming is not just pursued for bonding of ties between different beliefs and cultures. It is because to achieve any of these things, first must come an inner peace within individuals which then can, and will help to expand that peace into the grand unfolding existence we call today.
While we participate Globally, we will again ACT LOCALLY and have made the Richmond Food Pantry our charitable benefactor.
In addition to our request of a food item or $1 admission, we will also be donating all the proceeds from our raffle of our "Hands Of Friendship" painting which we will be creating in July of 2014. This donation to them will help when shelves are not so full and items need to be purchased for those in need of assistance.
