I am delighted to share with you this Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of PEACEMARKS!! Begun in 1984, and distributed, worldwide, since 1987, this year is a monumental time of a simple idea brought full circle.
PEACEMARKS began as a small collection of hand-written bookmarks, decorated with pressed leaves and flowers gathered in my own gardens. In the early days PEACEMARKS were given to close friends as well as to the participants at the Annual Windstar Foundation Symposium in Aspen, Colorado. In the early 1990's, an off-set of PEACEMARKS, CHIROMARKS were born to represent the ever evolving journey of my healing practice toward the principles and philosophies of old-time chiropractic.
The past 20 years have brought many changes to the look of PEACEMARKS. Throughout this journey of the Spirit, one thing has remained true to the beginnings, PEACEMARKS continue to be given Free of Charge to anyone who is called to share them with their friends, practice members, seminar participants, or to "randomly" distribute them on their journey in life.
"Give up what you have been doing and
go completely toward the path of your heart."
R. Buckminster Fuller
Following the events of September 11, 2001, PEACEMARKS and CHIROMARKS went through a brief but intense re-birth as approximately 3,500 were shared in the 2 months immediately after the tragedy. At last count, PEACEMARKS have traveled to 24 countries (that I am aware of) with numbers made estimated between 15,000 & 20,000. There are countless blessings that come to us throughout our lives, some for short durations, some that stand the test of time. It has been an honor for me to share these simple words, intentions of hope, love and possibility. I can only begin to express the bountiful effects that they have had on my own life's journey. I have seen it written in the myriad of letters I have received from around the world. I feel it, in my heart, each day that I serve.
As I take this time to honor the last 20 years and the true blessing of being a "pebble in the pond" for our world through PEACEMARKS, I would like to THANK YOU for your participation and support. I have always known that we each have a specific role, and that the greatest compliment we can give to our Creator, and to our world family, is to express ourselves from this deep, core, authentic place that we have inside. That is how we will make a difference in our world.
May we continue to Live, Learn, Love and Be Joyous on our communal pathway to World Peace.
Much Love & Respect,
