125th Memorial Ceremony at Wounded Knee in South Dakota...

The Centennial Ride to Wounded Knee in December, 1990

Peace Walk 2015 culminates at noon today in prayer and remembrance at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where two participants from Sirius Community have been on this journey, in solidarity with the Big Foot Memorial/Future Generations Ride, since December 15th: the date Sitting Bull was assassinated in 1890 at Standing Rock. ~ JDHWB-R

12 Noon

ALL OF HUMANITY suffers multi-lineal, multi-generational trauma and carries a grief so deep, so profound, so massive as to bring us to our knees in awe, overwhelm, shock, and pain buried in denial. We have WOUNDED KNEES!  WE HAVE WOUNDED HEARTS! All peoples have suffered for so very long, indeed our Earth is suffering with us!  The choice in clearly dawning — either grow and heal together or perish if we continue alone.

Please join us by gathering at your local sites of massacre, holocaust, places of human grief and suffering, places of worship, or in your own home to perform ceremony with us.

Our mission is to ignite a wave of healing so deep, so rich, so pure and so true that its far-reaching nature will carry inspiration to one another in every heart and every mind in each and every human being. We invite all to turn now to consciously face, embrace and pledge to heal these our deepest wounds so that we can bask in our birthright of joy, wisdom, freedom, love, beauty and peace.

We are much more than we have known. Hand in hand, heart to heart, let us step forward together into this new Millennium to engender Peace! Let us embrace and learn from our suffering.  Let us honor Life!  The Great Mystery of Life!

Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee

Out of the boundless Love we hold for Creation;

Out of the deepest Grace from which the Universe unfolds;
Out of the sourcing of all Wisdom;

Out of embracing, ceaseless Compassion;
Out of the tender, yet raging fire of Courage;
From the depth of our Heart of Hearts

Let Us
Cherish ourselves
Cherish one another
Cherish all children
Cherish all women, men, elders
Cherish all of every belief persuasion,
Cherish all of humanity, inclusively in such great need.
Let us cherish the two leggeds, the four leggeds,
The winged ones, all creatures great and small,
Let us cherish and treasure our Earthly planetary home.
For we have not yet learned to do this.

To honor all who ever died in war and massacre
To honor all who have ever died in holocaust
To honor all who have been tortured and died; who have been tortured and lived
To honor the Great Wounding of Humanity
We gather to finally heal.

Let us pledge to end massacre
Let us pledge to end genocide
Let us pledge to end racism
Let us pledge to end war
Let us pour forth the power of forgiveness
Let us nest in “brotherly/sisterly love”
Let us learn the depth, breadth and eternal nature of our true power
Let us learn what it is to more deeply Love

Let us sit in healing ministrations,
Let us hold heartfelt deliberations, reconciliation councils,
Let us host workshops, talking circles, gazing sessions,
Let us sing, dance, make music, art singly and together,
Let us listen to our stories, dreams and visions,
Invite inspiration to walk hand in hand
Let communities gather and ignite new life ways
Let us pray, meditate, deepen into Soul
Let restorative justice reign with wisdom and love
We are much more than we have ever known.

Leaders, dawning leaders, gather, bring your own
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers,
Hermits, orphans, grandparents

We call to one and all
Come with us in person
Or come with us in spirit
Come with us to Wounded Knee
Let our passion and compassion
Bring us here on bended knee
We bow to you Creation
Heal our Hearts at Wounded Knee.


Great Mystery,
Great Spirit,
Divine Grace which creates the galaxies,
the stars,
our earth
and gives us the mystery of life,
be with us,
anoint us,
guide us,
heal us.
