Together with the Peace Pole Committee, other organizations, and individuals, the Spiritual Awareness Center helped to start the project of planting 100 Peace Poles in our community. Since that time, the Peace Pole Committee of Montrose has taken over the project and extended the scope of the project to include any community in any country. Three Peace Poles in Nepal are now part of this project. The Spiritual Awareness Center continues to support the idea of bringing these symbols of peace to the community.

Peace Poles are not religious symbols, but universal symbols of peace. They have the word "Peace" or the words "May Peace Prevail on Earth", 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 or in white. You may create your own Peace Pole, or order one online. The World Peace Society has well-made and reasonably priced poles. There are also many other online sites for decorative garden or peace poles.

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. A new Peace Pole replaced the original one in 2021.

Over 200,000 Peace Poles in over 135 countries have been planted by cities, libraries, botanic gardens, schools, museums, parks, universities, at the September 11th Ground Zero, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park, on Mt. Everest, and many important world heritage parks and sites.
