- Sacred Peace Walk -

March 27 - April 1, 2007
Please note that this year's walk is not taking place during Holy Week.

We walk in the footsteps of a long legacy of peace walkers and spiritual leaders to draw attention to the nuclear dangers that continue to threaten our sacred planet and the community of life. Please join us in transforming fears into compassion and apathy into action in NDE's 2007 Sacred Peace Walk.

NDE's 69-mile, annual pilgrimage to the Nevada Test Site will begin on March 26th as we gather in Las Vegas and prepare for our six-day walk. Amidst the beauty of the desert, the transformation of our spirits will reflect the transformation we wish to see at the Nevada Test Site. We become a nomadic community through shared meals, sacred time together, ceremonies, and the meditative prayer-action of walking. In the quiet of the desert, the inspiration calling us to participate in this journey will become clearer.

On the final day, April 1st, we will gather at the gates of the Test Site with others who join us in a rally and action denouncing current nuclear plans and other warmaking preparations at the Test Site and propose alternatives for the land and industry. There will also be an optional action on Monday, April 2nd to reach out to the Test Site workers.

The 2007 Sacred Peace Walk will have a special interfaith focus commemorating Sr. Rosemary Lynch's 90th birthday, Mohammed's birthday, Palm Sunday, April Fools Day, and early celebration of Passover, Buddha's birthday, and the full moon.

Ceremonies with:
Rev. Alan Senauke, Zen priest, Buddhist Peace Fellowship
Anne Key, priestess, Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet
Brian Kimmel, Thich Nhat Hanh's Order of Interbeing
Fr. Mark Serna, Benedictine priest
and others

The Friday following the walk (Good Friday in the Christian tradition) will be an opportunity for people to vigil in their home cities.
