Welcome to the Center For Peace

Peace Pole

The Center for Peace is an international community focused on ancient wisdom traditions applied in the modern world.

We are located on sixteen acres in Seymour, TN, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Our pleasantly rustic facilities include the Peace Sound Chamber (used for chanting, workshops,ceremonies, and Vision Quests), a sweat lodge, a dance arbor, an open meadow for activities and camping, some peaceful woods, a gift store and a nicely appointed kitchen/dining area.

Our well equipped kitchen is capable of feeding 50-60 people three meals a day. Seating is banquet style, like a big family around the table.

For our longer workshops, gatherings and dances, camping is available as well as numerous motels located in nearby Sevierville, TN.

We offer many opportunities, such as:

  1. Visionary dances
  2. Sweat lodges
  3. Fire ceremonies
  4. Young people’s activities
  5. Chanting
  6. Drumming gatherings
  7. Sound healing
