Join us Saturday, February 29th from 9am until 4pm for a mix of art, spirit, nature, and rest as we spend a day creating peace poles for our yard, garden, or community.
The peace pole movement started in Japan in response to the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Masahisa Goi, the originator, dedicated his life to spreading the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” Peace Poles bear this message, typically in different languages, on each of the four sides of the pole. We will be creating our own Peace Poles in an array of colors with this message and/or our own thoughts, quotes, prayers, or poetry, all with the intention of spreading a little more peace, love, and light in this world.
Process over perfection, never a lecture, always hands-on, Art Wanders Creative Retreats, lead by Claudia Fulshaw, invite your spirit to roam.
Sponsored by The Lilies Project, registration is $75 and includes all materials to create your own 3′ tall Peace Pole. Registration deadline is Monday, February 24th at 5pm. Register online at the link below or by phone at 336-593-8159
