We celebrate the completion of renovations in the main building of the new Rainbow Powers Center and the completion of the Black Lodge Wing! It was a culmination of years of planning, prayer, intending, negotiating, and financial (and other) contributions by our apprentice community, students and friends.
The Rainbow Powers Center: Completion of the Commitment
As we moved through the process of purchase and renovation of the main building, then planning and building the new wing, we used a variety of strategies for funding. The construction of the new wing was financed in part through a renegotiation of our mortgage - so we continue our fund raising campaign to support repayment of that loan.
We welcome your donations! We also welcome your participation in activities in our beautiful new Center, including the Black Lodge Wing.
Why the Rainbow Powers Center is Important
The Rainbow Powers Center is the home of the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society (DTMMS) and the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path (SMSD). It has been a lineage dream carried by Thunder Strikes for many years, and it is the marriage basket out of which is birthed the future of this Path.
The new Black Lodge Wing, a 1500 sq. ft. space, houses physical fitness training, martial arts and other Black Lodge physical mastery and warrior arts training, as well as SMSD leadership training, an APA and de-armoring workshop, gatherings for teachers of the 8 Great Powers and other special DTMMS sponsored events.
The many activities conducted in this new wing will generate additional revenue that will fund expansion of services and programs to support our growing apprentice community and the production of publications and other media that take the teachings to a wider audience.
The Rainbow Powers Center creates connection and touches people worldwide. It is a vessel where people from all over the world come to learn, to remember, to be refreshed and rejuvenated. They then return to their everyday lives enriched and ready to make even greater positive impact in their relationships, families, and communities. As the home of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Rainbow Powers Center nurtures the human spirit and the flowering of our full human potential and holds the dream of peace with individual, autonomous freedom for all peoples.
