Rebuild Nat Bldg for PeaceWeavers

On New Year’s Eve night the PeaceWeavers’ beloved guest cabin burned to the ground. Fortunately no one was harmed. The guest cabin was home to Kevin O’Brien and Kylie Baker, who lost all their worldly possessions. Needless to say it was a devastating event for all.

The PeaceWeaver guest cabin was a one of a kind natural building. It was built over a period of seven years at the Natural Building Colloquiums that the PeaceWeavers hosted yearly from 2004 to 2011. Many natural building experts and hundreds of helpers were involved in creating the cabin. From design to completion, it was a work of love.

This loss couldn’t have come at a worse time for the PeaceWeavers. They are in the initial phase of a Building Campaign to secure the badly needed repairs and upgrades to the Longhouse, their community center. In addition to the $100,000 needed for the Building Campaign, they now need to raise $50,000 more to replace the building.

The Longhouse is a home away from home for the greater PeaceWeaver Community. Through retreats and gatherings, it has provided a healing space for thousands of people since 1994. The PeaceWeavers at Thunder Mountain have been dedicated to being of service for over 27 years. Together, let’s help them continue into the future.

Thank you for your love, consideration, and generosity. Financial contributions are tax-deductible.

Additionally, a GoFundMe page has been set up for Kevin and Kylie who also suffered a tremendous loss. I encourage you to support them, as well.
