Limited-Edition Peace Poles Now Available : At the Sanctuary Gift Shop in Wassaic, NY and Online
Dec 08, 2016 10:24PM
Two new limited-edition peace poles—created through a partnership of the World Peace Prayer Society (WPPS), artist Stephanie Burgess and Studio M— are now available for purchase. The four-foot-tall Sun and Moon and six-foot-tall Sun and Earth peace poles make a bold statement in any home or landscape, says Ann Marie Robustelli, assistant to the executive director and coordinator of the Peace Pole Project.
Peace poles are hand-etched, multisided monuments bearing the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in four or more languages. Proceeds from their sales support the activities of the Peace Pole Project, a program of the WPPS, a member-supported, not-for-profit, nonreligious, nonpolitical international peace organization affiliated with the United Nations. The 154-acre WPPS headquarters, the World Peace Sanctuary, is located in Wassaic, NY.
“In essence we are a global family—we are all connected in life—and peace is a responsibility we share,” Robustelli says. “Each of us has the capacity to shape the destiny of the Earth by our thoughts and actions.”
The World Peace Sanctuary grounds are open year-round, from dawn to dusk, seven days a week. The office is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Peace poles of all sizes can be purchased at the sanctuary gift shop or at ShopPeace.org.
