The color red is sacred to American Indians. All our medicines and artifacts used in ceremonies are wrapped in the color red. Red represents new birth of the sun (son?) and the color of the east is red. Red is the color of blood. Red is the color of new beginnings, a new day, a new promise, a new birth. Red also signifies the color of the sun: a symbol of energy, radiating its vitalizing life-force into human beings. Red symbolizes one of the four sacred directions.

A Fulfillment of Prophesy at Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas



Clay pottery artifact discovered on the Hot Springs Mountain at Rocky Roost by Julie Williams, 2012

“...The Moment represents an international gathering of people of all faiths, cultures, races, and backgrounds who will take a step toward recovering the collective soul of all mankind. This collegial effort based in our mutual faith in God as the individual knows the Creator, together in prayer, worship, ceremony, and fellowship represents many of the ideals curative and pastoral we work to achieve." - Rev. Dr. Fred Wilcoxson, Manataka, College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy


On October 20, 2012, thousands of people will join hands, hearts and minds on TOP of the Hot Springs Mountain, a traditional indigenous sacred site known as Manataka. In fulfillment of prophesy, people will come from all walks of life, races and religions to create a circle of love, prayer and Awakening. The Moment will be sanctified in time with the creation of a holy vibration that by the grace of God and through the Holy Spirit, a global emotional and spiritual awakening will occur that is essential to human connection of Spirit and Mother Earth.  The Moment will create a mass consciousness and give birth to a "light that will spread to many lands."  


"When you want something you have never had,

you have to do something you have never done."

From Rev. Thomas Haley, Manataka, Rock Hill Christian Church



"The churches of the world all speak of a hereafter. Those who follow the Christian faith speak of this as being the Kingdom of Heaven, or the Kingdom of God. Some people of the world believe they must die to enter this “Kingdom”; be it Heaven or Nirvana. We must realize that it is not a place, but a state of mind, a state of knowing that you and God are One." - Rev. Thomas M. Haley, Manataka, Rock Hill Christian Church, Hot Springs, AR


Agnostic, American Indian, Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian – Protestant and Catholic, Confucian, Druid, Hindu, Islam, Jainis, Jewish, Mayan, Sami and other traditions of Shamanism, Shinto, Sikh, Tao, Wicca, and Zoroastrian - all are invited to generate this rainbow spectrum of Spiritual Light. You carry with you a vibration from Creator. Please join us. 


Local churches, temples, mosques and synagogues are invited to bring their choirs and ring church bells during the event. Drums, rattles, shofars, conch shells, flutes – however you make a joyful noise -- are welcome


We need more buses to carry people to the TOP of the mountain

Morten Greywolf Storeide of Norway is responsible for making the World Drum Project a reality. The World Drum Project started as a vision of a drum that would travel around the planet. This drum is to be a 'wake-up' call for the people of Earth, to resound with a healing vibration wherever it traveled.  A Norweigan Sami, Birger Mikkelsen  created this special drum. The World Drum has now traveled around the globe 6 times. And on October 20, just one day before it's 6th anniversary, it will be in Hot Springs, Arkansas for The Moment event. When Morten Storeide learned of the Moment event, he felt that he and the Drum 'must' be there, since one of the main purposes of The World Drum is to Unite. Morten was recently elected to the governing board of the Shamanic Organization of Norway.

Our goal is to fill every pew in every church in Hot Springs

and surrounding areas on Sunday following the MOMENT!



•   The World Drum will be presented during the Moment event. First created in Norway by Sami shamans, the famous World Drum will be played by hundreds of people during the Moment. The World Drum has been presented at ceremonies across the globe in hundreds of countries since it was created. The World Drum is the manifestation of a vision of peace, and is a symbol of the Circle of Life and that all are connected.  It is meant to be a wakeup call or awakening for all humanity.


•   Processionals: Spiritual Elders and members of many faiths will lead groups in prayer and song in preparation for the Moment when all hands will be joined on the TOP of the sacred Manataka Mountain.

"...Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let it Begin with me..." -  submitted by Linda Schiller-Hanna

See the Focus Wheel -- Get into the MOMENT!



On October 20, 2012, thousands of people will join hands, hearts and minds around the entire seven mile base of Hot Springs Mountain, a traditional, indigenous, sacred site known as Manataka. In fulfillment of a prophesy found in many of our Native American tribes, people will come from all walks of life, colors, races and religions to create a circle of love, prayer and awakening. The Moment will be sanctified in time with the creation of a holy vibration that by the grace of God and through the Holy Spirit, a global emotional and spiritual awakening will occur that is essential to human connection of Spirit and Mother Earth. The Moment will create a mass consciousness and give birth to a "light that will spread to many lands.


Inspired by this amazing event, Dino has created this elegant pendant in .925 Sterling Silver as a beautiful memento of this auspicious moment in time. This beautifully-detailed pendant measures 1 1/8x1/8" and commemorates the gathering of many peoples and the emergence of "The Rainbow Tribes" around the globe, in fulfillment of these prophecies. A closer look at the design reveals 2 outer circles and the globe within creates the third." Then, there are 8 people surrounding the globe, their arms uplifted in praise. Three represents a moving forward of energy, overcoming the limitations of duality. The energies of expression and manifestation into the physical realms are also found in the number "3" vibration. Eight represents the whole; it is all possibilities in manifestation. And in the Christian belief, 8 is also the number of regeneration, rebirth and infinity. Together, these elements combine to create the master number "11" vibration which represents the most intuitive of all numbers, promoting illumination and deep insight, as well as spiritual harmony. This was the inspiration behind the creation of this pendant.


In addition, this keep-sake medallion has been bathed in the crystal waters of Manataka that flow at the base of the mountain, to further imbue them with these peaceful energies. So even if you cannot be here to join us in this amazing gathering, your new pendant will have been consecrated in prayer and ceremony and will carry the vibrations of all that transpires on this momentous occasion. This unique pendant is sure to become a treasured heirloom to be cherished and passed on from generation to generation.
