Peace Simply Stated

Bhavana Project prayer flags

I would like to share some peace... with that in mind we will revisit various flags from the Bhavana Project.  We begin with Debby Everett's flag from December 2006.  Taking the flags along on her travels, Debby photographed the flags displayed in numerous locations in Thailand, including "spirit houses".

Here is a bit of history if you are just joining us.  This is the second set created for the Bhavana Project, which is an ongoing community art work intending to share wishes and aspirations with the wider world.  Each participant chose a personal theme for their flag.  New participants are always welcome!

Sharon said, "The journey with the flags was incredible..I chose to use my “knitting” motif as a symbol of the unity of all things.  The writing began with the word “YES”.  And then we wrote all the things we were saying yes to.  It became a conversation with the flags…"

Here is a bit of history if you are just joining us.  This set of twelve prayer flags began in July 2005.  Each participant chose a personal theme for their flag.  It is the initial set created for the Bhavana Project, which is an ongoing community art work intending to share wishes and aspirations with the wider world.  New participants are always welcome!
