Dear friends of Pyramid of Peace,
It is with great sadness that we announce we are no longer participating in the December 21st events in Teotihuacan. I would first like to say a HUGE thankyou to everyone for the constant support and encouragement we have had over the last 4 years. Unfortunalty, since the initial vision of the event, many things have changed. For example, the original intention was to have the gathering on Tlakaelel's land, but in the last 3 years the local people have been making it harder and harder for them to even have the sundance there. Obviously we would not wish to compromise this further.... Since that news we have been working for another solution for participating in the Mexico celebrations, however, nothing at this point in time has mainfested.
For people already going to Teotihuacan, there will be many celecbrations, music and festivities happenening, our gathering was always going to be a small contribution to the greater picture of what's going on there. For more information on events at Teotihuacan please go to the Noopshere page at http://www.facebook.com/events/#!/events/313664445385876/
The Pyramid of Peace intention has always been to raise money for Tlakaelel, Mechica, Tolteca elder who lives in Teotihuacan, towards his Pyramid of Peace he is building there- to leave a solid contribution to the future generations to come. The Pyramid of Peace will be an alternative learning centre for indigenous and all peoples. It will teach astromony, correct reading of the hyrogliphs. mathematics, healing and much more. Tlakaelel's home where the new pyramid is being built is overlooking the pyramid of the sun and moon at Teotihuacan and his doors are always open for visitors.
The reason the Pyramid of Peace project has spread so internationaly is because so many people out there shared in this vision also. The love and support we have had has been truly amazing and touches the heart. From DJ's who were offering to play for free, people wanting to be ground crew, or just offering whatever services they had - thank you. Also, an absolutely HUGE THANK YOU to all who came across the country to the fund raiser party on christmas eve in London - we all made it a very special family gathering :)
In light of all that's happened we would like to announce our new gathering for the Pyramid of Peace in Devon, England on the Auntumn Equinox. We hope to bring all the elements we would have brought to Mexico but here in England. The gathering will be a fund raiser with all profit going towards Tlakaelel's Pyramid of Peace. We have a beautiful location right next to the sea. We already have a brilliant line up of music, as well as workshops and a kid friendly area. We hope to have a small, magical celebration together and leave something solid as our contribution in 2012 for future generations. There are only 400 tickets for sale at £50 each, a bargain for 3 full days of magical-ness so get in quick.
We are also doing a raffle to win an Obsidian Statue sent by Tlakaelel for our group. Everyone who donates to the Pyramid of Peace automatically enters the raffle. Results will be drawn on September 30th and the winner will be contacted and put on our web site. Every penny goes a long way in Mexico and is much appreciated. If you wish to donate, please send me, Sophie Latter a personal email and i will send you the Pyramid of Peace account info.
