... Build a self-sustaining, inter-tribal, inter-racial earth friendly community and healing center based upon traditional Native American values. A place where Native American traditions and healing arts will be respected, lived and passed along to benefit communities in the United States and abroad. To provide for the continuance of traditional spiritual and healing teachings of indigenous peoples through the use of our traditonal ceremonies, gatherings, workshops, continual research into holistic healing techniques, and other activities that promote the preservation of indigenous ways, and to provide financial support to tribal elders, healers, and spiritual leaders whenever possible.
What is my purpose to joining Peace For The Soul:
•To help people find their personal connection with the Mother Earth and in finding solutions to the ecological crises that confront her, themselves, and our collective commities.
•To help bridge the wisdom and knowledge from all cultures and traditions working together with mutual respect to face the challenges that we are all facing today and the challenges that we are leaving behind for the coming generations. By working together in this manner, we will learn to have more respect and tolerance for each other.
