Summer Solstice Sunrise over Stonehenge
|Awakening As One exists for the sole purpose of inspiring and encouraging humanity to make the intelligent choice to unite and live for the peace and harmony of all, rather than for the material gain of the self.
Awakening As One invites us all to join them this Summer Solstice (World Peace & Prayer Day) for the first in a series of events planned for this summer, where we can unite and shine our light for the world by sharing it on the streets of our own cities.
Our action of uniting to shine in public locations will allow us to find, and be found by, others who are seeking change in the darkness of this falling age, and by those whom we would not typically encounter because of our varied social backgrounds.
THE HEALING POWER OF PLAY
The Summer Solstice and other such Events will unite the voices and actions of their participants in public expressions of love and gratitude for the earth, her oceans and all living things.
And in accordance with “The Plan” acts such as this, where people Unite, to spread Truths, in Compassionate Service; will bring increased balance and healing to the world’s corresponding negative aspects of fear, ignorance, hate and greed.
Though a Summer Solstice Event could be ANY activity where people Unite, to acknowledge Truth, in Compassionate Service, we offer the following guidelines which will be used in a number of cities in Western Canada, and which anyone may adapt according to their own interests.
SOLSTICE EVENT SUGGESTIONS:
UNITE IN WHITE: Participants will wear white tops to symbolize the love, light and unity, which connect the individuals in their city with others around the world who are shining for peace, the planet and all living things.
ONE WORD GIFT: Each individual will write their one-word gift to the world (peace, harmony, fun, acceptance, etc) on a white balloon. This is an important aspect to the event because it allows each individual the opportunity to Serve by BEing their gift to the world through their embodiment of their offering.
THE PRESENTATION: Imagine if you will…. a silent single-file procession, where participants dressed in white hold white balloons displaying their one-word gift to the world in front of their hearts.
Silently embodying its offerings of peace, joy and playfulness, the procession brings a sense of upliftment to the space through which it moves, and peaks the curiosity of strangers stirred by the curious sight. Each of the silent participants carries cards that they provide to the curious onlookers.
On one side, the cards read: “They may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”
And on the other: This is “The Call” to Unite. www.AwakeningAsOne.com
Before, the procession begins the group’s intentions will be aligned with those of others around the world who are uniting for World Peace & Prayer Day. (See info below.)
Please note: the above guidelines are suggested because they are simple, yet versatile, and because they provide each person the oh-so-important opportunity for self-expression, and personal service. We invite you to create your own format for bringing a vision of love, unity and service to the streets, and ask you to share it with us, through photos and video at: firstname.lastname@example.org
VARIATIONS: if the means lie within a city’s participants we heartily encourage the inclusion of Song and Music to the event, in addition to one or two roaming facilitators (people who are outside of the single-file procession & who pass out cards and/or interact with the onlookers.)
THE PLACE: The striking simplicity of a group of people united in compassionate service, with white balloons and tops, may be further expanded and explored by taking this basic concept and installing it in different settings.
It is one thing to weave the procession through a park or sunlit sidewalk teeming with weekend shoppers, and it is something similar, yet entirely new, to move the procession through soup kitchens, special care homes or through the chaotic streets of night-time revelers.
IMPORTANT NOTE: when deciding on a location for your event, each group must have safety as the number one consideration. It is also important to note that the nature of these events is NOT to mistaken for protests, rather they are meant as presentations of love and inspiration which occur to reflect the light inside of the people who experience them, and to open the doorway for them to find new information and interactions.
This event is timed to synchronize with hundreds of thousands people around the world who will be united in prayer for our Earth, her oceans, and for all life.

We are… Awakening As One
WORLD PEACE & PRAYER DAY – June 21st, 2010
As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our UncπI Maka). We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.
As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life. So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our childrenπs future and well-being, and the generations to come.
Onipikte (that we shall live), Chief Arvol Looking Horse
