Celebrating 11 Days for Peace in Ashland
Ashland Culture of Peace Commission (ACPC) is celebrating one year of exploring a new culture that could bring more peace into our community and the world. Individuals come together to take on hard questions and reveal solutions. Our focus is on how we can change from a culture that promotes separation, fear and violence into one of compassion and peace.
Immediately after the attack on September 11, 2001, Trish McCarty, founder of StarShine Academy (K-12 charter school in Phoenix, Arizona) called upon students and staff to commemorate 11 Days of Peace. That began an annual memorial celebration from 9/11 up to the International Day of Peace, September 21st. Starshine, a mini United Nations campus with students from all over the world, paved the way for other groups to expand the 11 Days of Peace.
ACPC presents the 11 Days for Peace in Ashland and suggests a heart/mind focus for each of the eleven days, including Forgiveness, Inclusivity, Accountability, Compassion, Respect, Gratitude, Embracing Change, Love, Empathy, and Peace. Ashlanders will have the opportunity to explore what “peace” means personally and collectively.
11 Days for Peace is an opportunity for ACPC to share their vision for a community that works for everyone. When one can see what isn’t working without judgment, there is an eye toward solutions. Every individual, business, organization and agency is invited to be a pathway to peace.
The question, “How do we shift from the culture we are in to one of peace?” has led through awareness of what is not peace to imaginings of how a peaceful society might look, all with the realization that we may not know what true peace is and that we are discovering together.
An answer on how to achieve peace comes from our indigenous roots. Marcine Quenzer, author of Spirit Winds of Peace, Epoch of the Peace Maker, brings to life the story of the founding of the Iroquois Confederacy, which formed the basis for our Declaration of Independence. Five warring nations came together in peace that reigned for a thousand years in North America, bringing us a model for peacemaking to use today.
11 Days for Peace launched with ceremonies in Lithia Park led by Marcine Quenzer, at the Regional Peace Pole in Medford’s Cellular Park, and with lighting the Peace Flame. Activities continued with a concert and labyrinth experience at United Methodist Church.
A daily vigil is being held from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on the Plaza throughout the 11 Days for Peace where challenges to peace are examined. With the theme "Making peace inclusive for all”, ACPC and guest speakers will address specific social issues. ACPC is also hosting a daily talking circle from 11 am to noon at the office exploring the quality recognized each day that allows peaceful solutions to emerge.
What we create now is what our grandchildren and the generations that follow will be living with. Listening to youth and hearing their concerns about the future led to further inquiry. “How can we provide an opportunity for our youth to express their visions, ideas and dreams?”
The ACPC Education team responded with an invitation for high school students to write an essay, middle school students to submit poetry, and elementary students to create a poster. Specific prompts and details for each category are found on our website. All youth living in or being educated in Ashland are welcome to participate with submissions due 9/16. A book will be published with the entries so Ashland can hear the voices of the future.
On September 21st, we celebrate International Day of Peace and our one year anniversary in Ashland. Events will be held at Wesley Hall, United Methodist Church and include field trips for elementary students from 10 am - 2 pm and an evening celebration from 5 - 8 pm featuring Matthew Fox (Creation Spirituality) and Cecilia St. King (Inner Peace Troubadour).
We invite you to explore, experience, share and participate in creating a Culture of Peace within – and in our beloved city.

Andras & Mayana ~ Heartists in Resonance
On Monday, a group of souls from the Ashland Culture of Peace Commission Workgroup gathered on the hills overlooking the city in ceremony. We had just listened to 'Spirit Winds of Peace", the story of the PeaceMaker, Woman of Peace, and the founding of the Iroquois Confederacy, told by Marcine Quenzer. (click for her website to see her art and the story)
Marcine is an amazing Woman, Artist, WisdomKeeper, Elder, and Story Teller - who first retrieved the story of how humans moved from a culture of war to a Culture of Peace 1100 years ago. Over 30 of us were enraptured with the wisdom shared and the story that rings true in our hearts. United State's Founding Fathers got the document that became the Declaration of Independence from the Iroquois Men. They did not value women so the women had no telling in the story these men heard. The Men tell their story about what they did and the women tell their story about what they did - so only half the story was told. It's a pretty big half to leave out because this was a Matriarchal Society - women had the final say.
After a brief meal break, we gathered on the lawn for ceremony - based in Native American wisdom and welcoming all, we did work in the energetic realms to insert the Culture of Peace into Ashland's morphogenic field, an unseen dimension where collective thought forms are real structures. This was a great joy for me personally as I had been in community with Marcine in Boise and our work was connected through intention during many culture changing ceremonies. We (our community) did good work together!
During the ceremony many words were spoken to call forth those forms and dissolve their foundational support through our collective thought. We did good work together!
One Thought Form/Additudinal Structure that was not addressed in the ceremony made itself known immediately.
PRETENSE: Out of this form comes hypocrisy, egocentric behavior, misdirection, and a society that pretends to care yet works behind the scenes for personal cultural benefit at the detriment of others... i.e. a take take take relationship.
Pretense is big in several communities within each part of our culture and this is not about a specific location - rather a cultural element worth replacing. Pre-Tense ... an element that comes before the tension. Up front it is all friendly and open, but watch out behind you! There's a snap!
I've lived a life coming out of fundamentalist Christianity - I have used Pretense and all those things. Sometimes they slip in again... it's about how quickly one recognizes the patterns when they arise. When I saw this pattern, I immediately went to work in the morphogenic field. You are invited to join in intention for Integrity in the foundation of our New World and the deconstruction of the Thought Form called Pretense.
Before you enter your Sacred Place in the Inners for this work - consider this also:
We have been experiencing the power of vulnerability for some time now, seeing how - when we come together in compassion - when one allows their vulnerable soul to be seen - we bond in the heart. We have been so far from our own compassion that our society must become vulnerable before a new society may take root. We are most vulnerable right now! Our compassion is rising, we are connecting globally and locally with others in Heart.
Today I was 'Informed' that the foundation cannot be vulnerable. Integrity stands strong in the knowing of who you are... being vulnerable to who you are is part of the process of getting all the way in so your new Inner Structures can be built. These new structures and Collective Thought Forms are built with Integrity of Intention - for the greater good of all. With One Mind and One Heart that is True.
Build your new thoughts with Integrity and the God Mind we all have in our hearts. It is time to Think with our Hearts and Feel with our Minds. Feel/Sense what is happening in the Morphogenic Field at all times around you. Allow your Heart to guide thinking... with compassion.
Be aware of the collective thoughts of the culture you are in and surrounded by physically. Hold strong as a Pillar in the true Knowing of YOU! and together... we will establish the foundation in the morphogenic field... rivers and streets of gold flow between each pillar (or sphere) to build structures with the sounds of love, joy, peace, nurturing, education, and harmonious Syntony.
Divine Masculine - Changing Systems and Foundation Forms
June 20, 2016 Full Moon Summer Solstice is an 8 day in numerology and represents the SHIFT from the old form to the new. Watch out folks... it's getting REAL NOW! It is time for Cosmic Emergence - Our Mother Ship Planet Earth is Emerging with New Life and Glory!
Sun is on Sagittarius 29: A FAT BOY MOWING THE LAWN, Sabian Symbols
"This Symbol speaks about the ability, or the need, to keep things neat, clean and tidy and looking nice. The “Fat Boy” has all he needs; he’s well fed, supposedly has lots of toys (tools, machines, hobbies) and he’s out in the yard helping out. This degree shows the need for everyone to get in and help out on the domestic level, but also to be able to do what needs to be done where it needs to be done." Lynda Hill
From 8/8/88 to now we have had days of rising to a new frequency season by season and year by year that have brought us to this moment. BLESS all Souls who participated in the Harmonic Convergence that day... do you remember where you were and what you were doing?
I was in Sun Valley, Idaho being a mother to a Plieadian Sister, Maia, to whom her father an I gave the name Sherry Danielle... Princess Who Is the Strength of God. She was nearing her first birthday and we had a fun year together when somehow I heard... through all the veils of fundamentalist Christianity I KNEW about this day and was in Consciousness with the All that day with my baby girl at home alone together.
Andras founded Heartists for Peace and organized a gathering for the Harmonic Convergence at Marina Beach Hotel in Marina Del Ray, California, USA. 200 to 300 Souls gathered on the roof deck celebrating with Music, Art, and Dance... raising money to support Jimmy Carter's Habitat for Humanity.
Where were you? Please share in the comments below and let's map our consciousness from that moment forward. Where on the planet was conscious awareness united?
Many other dates between then and now could be mapped later. Any volunteers to lead that movement? :) The map would include a list of the global meditations, events and calls for prayer since.
The seed of the Harmonic Convergence was supported by many group global actions as the new masculine Thought seed began to grow within the feminine of our SOUL. It's now time for the Cosmic Emergence.
Now . . . The OLD world has died. WE see the evidence of composting in human minds and bodies. Let it be. Turn OUR attention to the NEW that has birthed within and bring it out. Mothers - remember those moments of "I'm so DONE with this pregnancy!" That's the moment we are in. As we allow the NEW Child's Thought to emerge through the physical manifestation of our world.
We are Shapeshifting the World through this event. HOW?
Through a series of actions in awareness together in heart, mind, spirit and soul... In Everland (wherever You ARE) as Heartists we Emerge as Master, Priest, Royal, Sovereigns of our own lives in harmony with each other individually and collectively.
Entrainment is the physics theory that two oscillating bodies have the tendency to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. We are going to Lock, Load, Aim and Fire our ONE THOUGHT of a world that works for all and project it into form ~ impressing ~ expressing ~ compressing ~ and ~ inspiring those around us so they entrain to this New Foundation for our communities, systems, societies, families, and species.
By sending your Highest Vision, Thought, Imagining into the All on this Solstice June 20th where you are ~ our songs will merge together into a Syntony... not a symphony, though there will be that and many other expressions of our harmony... Syntony - the state of being normally responsive to and in harmony with the environment.
With each individual One Thought for the Greater Good of All, we come together in harmonious Syntony to HOLD the Field of Heaven/Health/Wholeness/Unity/Peace/...............
And those around us physically and energetically will entrain. That process unfolds through time. Look back and see how many changes have come since the first Harmonic Convergence. We are more conscious and many youth are fully aware, some from birth.
Every Eye will SEE when they See and not a moment before. We observe how this unfolds in time and watch the rate of change and the speed of manifestation, and see the numbers of people who join together and note what they gather around. Don't worry or concern yourself with what is gathering in the compost pile. except to dash over and get a load of sh*t to put on your garden. :)
Here's some things we can each do:
- Be Aware. Connect in consciousness with us with your set intention through the day no matter what tasks you are called to do, whether work, play, or ceremony - or all 3.
- Share this message. Strengthen the call for ONE Thought and a new Form by sharing in your social media channels, friends, networks, and groups. Comment on this post and share freely. Every Soul where this passes through their awareness is connected to the Emergence.
- Speak of our movement and Call in your ceremony and add the full strength of your celebration of this Full Moon Solstice to the Emergence.
Masters turn what is intended for destruction and create with it for good. Here are some intentions for transformation we suggest considering with your Song/Vision/Intention:
- All technology within Chemtrails are reprogrammed to nourish and sustain life and to consume all pharmaceutical, pesticide, and toxic energies. We know nanotechnology and dna can be reprogrammed by thought - proven science.
- Microbes have risen from the inner earth spaces through the volcanic and earthquake activity that has been happening. Connect with them in your mind and direct their activities locally... in the ground under your feet... and globally such as to eat the radiation in the oceans and clean the rivers and land.
- Allow your Masculine and Feminine energies within to merge and blend in new ways without thought or concern as to the form they will take. Allow your chromosomes and dna to become NEW and Emerge in your new form with Joy. I feel this process will strengthen each individual and remove all former discord within our sexuality, between our form and our flow, and between our thoughts and feelings.
- Empower the YOUTH to RISE and take action for the New World to Emerge. See the young people in your community... what are they wanting to create? Support them with mentoring or resources or your intention.
- KNOW that we have POWER to transform our world. WE ARE the ONE... No more Waiting. Time is NOW!
- Comment below as to where you are and what you are doing so we can add our thought to yours in return flow of the Infinite Grace.
Peace to us ALL!

And Living Sublime without care and turmoil
and War and Strife... Can you see that world
through the dark of Night? The world that our
children have brought through their
Autism and Downs and Death and Decay
Can you SEE that we MUST Create a new WAY
Where ALL of LIFE is HONORED and CARED For
And you and I Become the Foundation for a World
Filled with Love where Peace Abounds.
No ONE Rules OVER the ONES who STAND
For we STAND in PEACE hand in hand - heart to heart
Protecting the LAND, the SKY and the SEA
So Children that follow may PLAY FREE.

This pattern emerged out of years of working with Barbara Marx Hubbard's Wheel of CoCreation in community. In 2009, while living in Boise, Idaho, Mayana began calling circle. She called Council of One forth. Individuals came in their highest self to lay a foundation for the new world to emerge. Diane Krouse was Mayana's support to bring through ceremonies that grounded cosmic energies arriving from the Great Central Sun. Diane and Mayana intuited and queried Spirit until the Council of One program emerged for monthly ceremonies.
Now the pattern takes a new form with the Sovereign Council Sphere. Lined with Gold, and Christ Consciousness, the Blue Sphere holds all potential and all colors and rays. Each ray is supported and nurtured by all other rays. Readings must take into consideration what energy shows up where and how they are all interacting. Any cards may be used for these readings and your own intuitive sense will see the flow and know the message.
In the Blue and Gold - we find the core essence of Earth. As Her light shines forth into the universe, the Hopi prophecy of the Blue Star Kachina is fulfilled and we are seen. The Blue Water Star we ARE shines bright as Gold.
In the core of the Sphere we find Peace. All potential merges in the Silence. All rays flow through the core, changing each time you go around the spiral. This is a living flowing pattern for life affirming Wisdom and Action.
YOU are invited to do a reading for yourself with this pattern and your cards. Submit your reading to Peace Production and we will select a variety of perspectives to publish. We have many opportunities to play and co-create.
If you would like a reading with Mayana to discover and harmonize your Sovereign Council, contact her here.
Inside your being in the depths of your heart is your open connection to Source. We meet there... in the Silence... in the Inners.
