Though small it’s famous for its peaceful tranquility housing a wildlife sanctuary with more than 500 varieties of wildflowers and 200 species of birds. “It’s a place when you visit nobody seems to be in a hurry”, reports visitmaine.com

It is also one of the most Famous Island communities in Maine. Rachel Field once said “if you have slept on an island. You’ll never quite be the same.”

Many famous artists felt the same.

The Island welcomed Rockwell Kent, Robert Henri, A.J Hammond and Edward Hopper. “Much found the quiet Peaceful setting inspirational” as camdenmainevacation.com speaks of their presence in the early 19thcentury.

The Peace Pole stands in front of a one room schoolhouse still used to this day, and enrolling students currently. “The Monhegan Island School is a treasured landmark and has been an educational springboard for generations of islanders.” According to Monheganschool.org

The school reports, The Monhegan School Mission is to provide a safe environment, which fosters creativity, cooperation, and respect. While exposing each student to diversity, educational and social experiences that connect them to Monhegan Island and to the global community.

A Peace Pole, whose premise is much like the mission of the little school it resides by. A mission to bring people together to live in peaceful harmony, foster respect and embrace diversity throughout the global community.

Peace Pole Planted, Aiken, SC, USA

Aiken, SC Peace Pole

We planted our Peace Pole on November 4th,  at the entrance to my labyrinth. We have had a meditative labryinth created for several years now. We live in Aiken, South Carolina. I first received the idea of having a Peace Pole when I discovered one in Kanuga in Hendersonville, SC.

We did not have a tradional ceremony, but I plan to “Celebrate Peace in my life and wish it out to the world every time I see my Peace Pole and walk the labyrinth.”

Thank you for sharing your story with us, what a wonderful homage to Peace by celebrating it every day.

May Peace Prevail in Aiken

May Peace prevail on Earth
