the "Way of Inspiration"
the late 90s, John and Jeanne Pehrson left executive corporate
positions, stepping out in faith, to help raise the level of collective
awareness around the world to the possibility of a loving and lasting
peace. They were asked to let go of everything and trust. It was a
literal leap of faith. Exploring and mapping the path of spontaneous
living, their journey in faith has taken them around the world, reaping
miracles that often defy reason and imagination.
In the process, they
have developed the skills required to “live in the moment” – something
that is increasingly important in today’s atmosphere of polarization and
uncertainty. These skills include receiving and acting on inner
guidance, taking risks and being willing to “fall,” developing absolute
trust in the face of obstacles, applying love to move through fear, and
the power of giving and gratitude to shift outcomes.
In September 1995,
the inspiration for their current mission came to Jeanne in a powerful
vision while doing conflict resolution work in Russia. Shortly after,
Jeanne met Beautiful Painted Arrow, a Native American visionary and
mystic, who blessed her with the name of “Jeanne White Eagle.” It was in
1998 that Jeanne and John stepped out in faith and committed everything
they had to “listen, show up, and say YES to their inner guidance. In
developing the trust to let go of everything, they allowed themselves to
fall – and discovered that Spirit was carrying them. There was nowhere
to fall. Since then, they have been guided by visions and carried around
the world in a magical way, full of miracles.
Their mission has
been to build bridges between people of different cultures, religions
and worldviews and the possibility of a loving and lasting peace – one
person at a time. Everywhere they have gone, they have shared with
others the “way of inspiration” and open-heartedness through the power
of sacred sound and dance, dialogue and intuition.
In 1996, Jeanne White
Eagle had a vision for a singing dance called the “For the One” Dance.
This dance offers an experience that takes people out of their comfort
zones and creates the potential for life changes and personal
transformation. It is also an experience that has proven to be
therapeutic. Many people experience mental, emotional, spiritual and/or
physical healing. People feel stronger afterwards. Many experience the
kind of unconditional love that creates a feeling of community that
rises above differences in religious or political worldviews. And in
that way, it helps to create peace – one person at a time.
The first one of
these dances took place in 2003 in the USA and since then, the “For the
One” Dance has grown rapidly, taking place in the USA, Israel, Germany,
Norway, Ireland, South Africa, Bosnia, Croatia, Egypt and Brazil. New
"For the One" Dances are in the making for Hawaii, Iceland, Italy,
Haiti, Australia, New Zealand, Poland and Russia.
In addition to the dance, Jeanne and John give Peace Concerts worldwide
and focus much of their effort on Conflict-Resolution and Community
Building events, that often take them into war zones and other areas of
deep conflict. Their work involves the use of Sound, Movement,
harnessing the power of Intuition, and facilitating the Open Heart
Process, a process designed to help resolve conflict.
The early years meant
working with many of the Peace-Sound Chambers around the world,
following a vision given to Beautiful Painted Arrow, and whose influence
has been major in the direction in which Jeanne and John now go.
Jeanne and John are
both authors and educators. They also do counseling for individuals and
businesses. Currently, John bases much of his counseling on the use of
intuitive imagery, and a new system of Mystical Numerology that he has
created over a period of more than twenty years, while Jeanne focuses on
the power of Sound.
To support this work,
a nonprofit organization has been created. If you would like to become
