Peace Village Visitors

The Peace Village is a private sacred sanctuary of Sunray Meditation Society.  The Peace Village is open to individuals and families who are attending Sunray-sponsored programs and for camping by individuals and families who are pre-registered and approved in advance for camping.

People from all clans and nations, young and old, can give thanks for the gift of life and learn the skills of peace making here at the Peace Village. Attitudes of mind and behaviors that create suffering can be changed, allowing each one to come into right relationship and know that peace is possible.
