World Peace Sanctuary Welcomes Visitors Year-Round

The World Peace Sanctuary, located on 28 acres in Wassaic, is the headquarters of May Peace Prevail On Earth International, The Peace Pole Project and Peace Pals International. Anyone is welcome to explore the grounds, enjoying the peace monuments and points of interest throughout the property.

“When people come to the sanctuary, they are in awe of how peaceful it feels,” says Ann Marie Robustelli, assistant to the executive director.

The sanctuary grounds offers a seven-circle-wide Peace Labyrinth, based on a design found on an ancient Cretan coin; the Sacred Grove, which surrounds the sanctuary; and the Wisdom Trail, designed by Michael Guldbrandsen.

The World Peace Sanctuary grounds are open from dawn to dusk seven days a week. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., visitors can stop by the sanctuary office to learn more about The World Peace Prayer Society and shop for gifts bearing the universal message of peace: “May peace prevail on earth.”

Location: World Peace Sanctuary, 26 Benton Rd., Wassaic, NY. For more info, call 845.877.6093 or email [email protected] or visit
