About Peace Sticks
It is a life force activating, connecting practice played by throwing and catching Peace Sticks amongst each other. The first intention is to help the other person and in this way we build trust and clear communication, giving and receiving in balance and rhythm. The dynamic movement of the sticks opens us to the infinite possibilities of the flow of nature, bringing our bodies, minds, breath and spirit into a full movement meditation.
Peace Sticks is a paradigm shift in our way of relating.
Playing Peace Sticks allows us to experience these key paradigm shifts.
1. Fear to flow state
2. Competition to collaboration
3. Separation to community
Peace Sticks cultivates vibrant health, pure awareness, life force energy, and balanced empathic, peaceful connection between people and all our relations.
The Essence of Peace Sticks
World Peace Ceremony
When we do a Peace Sticks group teaching it is also a ceremony. This signifies that we are using our intention to activate and unite our life force energy and consciously use it to bring peace and vitality into our beings and all life on earth.
The teaching style uses, presence, acceptance, and forgiveness to clear blockages of fear and self judgment. This allows our genuine, child like love of learning and play to emerge.
The methodology includes way of the circle, space of acceptance, unified breathing, music, shared rhythm, talking stick, and peace counsel. Each ceremony is unique and connected to a cause and fundraising for people and peace centers.
Participants complete the ceremony having learned the basics of how to play and teach Peace Sticks to others, empowering each person as a peace maker.
