Peace Pole Project
Peace Poles Installed: 22 and Peace Poles to Go: 78.
The Spiritual Awareness Center is sponsoring a new project to plant 100 Peace Poles in our community and declare ourselves to be a Community of Peace. No other city in the United States has 100 Peace Poles. Atlanta, Georgia is the closest with 55.
Peace Poles in the 100 Peace Pole Project have the word PEACE inscribed on all sides in 4 to 8 different languages of the owner’s choice. Peace poles are 4 feet, 6 feet, or 8 feet in length and come stained in a natural wood color.
The first Peace Pole was planted in in our community in Ute Indian Park. It was dedicated in 2007 and since that time has been a popular gathering place for groups and individuals seeking a quiet place to meditate on peace. Regular Prayer Gatherings on the Equinoxes and Solstices and other important occasions are also held there.
Individuals, businesses, service and community groups, schools, churches, and the city are encouraged to plant Peace Poles. To be included in this project, Peace Poles should be registered with the Spiritual Awareness Center. All Peace Poles officially registered will receive a free Dedication ceremony by members of the Spiritual Awareness Center and a Certificate of Participation in the 100 Peace Pole Project. A Journal of Peace Poles and locations will be kept at the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose, CO. Locations of the 100 Peace Poles will appear on Google Maps.
To order your Peace Pole with your selection of languages, call 970-901-6109 or 970-252-0908. You don’t have to live in the Montrose community to have a Peace Pole and be a part of this important project. There is one Peace Pole already installed in Nepal with two more planned as part of the project.
