"Gaia Matrix" / Peter Champoux

                                                              Trees o'Peace Wheel

Peter Champoux: presents this latest study on the ‘field’ phenomena of landscape geometry. Champoux (pronounced shampoo) born to a pile of rock in Holyoke, MA, has been a professional classical stone mason, an environmental artist, self educated geographer, farmer, author (Gaia Matrix), teacher, geomancer, dowser, techno- peasant... Peter’s landscape geometries are environmental models developed from a synthesizes of ‘what is’ into a new myth and potential model for spiritual, social and planetary cohesion.
His vision blends geography, ecology, history, art, math, myth, and mystery, hence the name GAIAGRAPHY. Peter’s gaiagraphic field phenomena geometries are two dimensional graphics of 3D etheric bubbles suggestive of an ultra dimensional field effect. Gaiagraphy is an art, science, and practice that maps consciousness: human and terrian. Like the wind and water or Feng Shui, ether, or the field, GAIAGRAPHY is a force of nature revealed in our shared sacred landscape.

A miracle is occurring in western Massachusetts in the form of a co-creative ring of spiritual communities.
With a common intention of peace these communities live the lessons of The Great Iroquois Peacemaker, Deganawida when he advised in unity there is peace. Evolving over millennia this ring of conscious communities at the center of North American projects this intention of unified peace across the land.
The ‘Trees of Peace’ are mythic centers of a self organizing circle honoring Native Peoples, encircling communities of love and healing the living memory of the land. The Trees of Peace Wheel is a myth of, by, and for the People.This wheel is a symbiotic and co-created network that coheres matter and energy spontaneously transforming into a newer, higher organizational state at this threshold of complexity, implying the presence of a self realizing co-creative spiritual power in the earth, Gaia.
Centering on the Trees of Peace grove in Mohawk Trail SF this frequency of peace is set by the axialtonal alignment of the grove of trees and two Peace Pagodas. The Trees of Peace grove was an inspired co-creation of Jani Leverett, a Cherokee Grandmother now in spirit, who in wisdom dedicated these trees to contemporary living native elders as a place to hold their prayerful intention in form as a living old growth forest. In symbolic resonance with the tree of life, this grove of White Pines of Peace coalesce the diverse communities and spiritual centers into a coherent whole; a wheel of prayer whose grace and power heals the heart of the world.
America has myth of war a-plenty, but what is it’s myth of peace? The anglo Pilgrims imagined this new land (to them) to be a ‘new’ JerUSAlem (a place of peace). Thus, they set a new mythic ‘Image’ as an expression of peace in place names. Ultimately the purpose of both the land and its people is to live in peace.  They saw it in the landscape.  That mythic "image" is still there!
The expanded ring (x4) of the Trees of Peace Wheel, marked by New England's JerUSAlems, includes on the ring a concentration of museums holding sacred objects of America's native peoples, and contemporary tribal centers of the Pequot and Naragansett Peoples into a wheel of life encircling and supporting the Trees of Peace Wheel with ancestral memory and love; healing and reconciling the Holocaust of the People whose Trail of Tears still flows in the waters of the world.
Central to a network of Lei (ley) Lines and Earth Rings that draw a matrix of life from the land itself; the Trees of Peace Wheel is a contemporary sacred site expressive of our time and peoples. We Americans have traveled far and wide to experience the sacred landscape seemingly missing in our own land and lives. Look no further for this Wheel reveals the sacred character of this land. For America's native people to co-create such a sacred geometry is a testament to their co-creative link with Creator. It is through this matrix of Gaia (our living earth) that balance is brought to the world.
While Western Massachusetts has no pyramid or Stonehenge its sacred essence is proclaimed by nature’s many cities, rivers, mountains and coasts lines that all point to this holy ground. Western Massachusetts' sacred character is further attested by these spontaneously self organizing colleges, communities and monasteries. Nature and human culture conspire and point to these ‘Wisdom Hills’. Implicate to this conversation is a world view where western Massachusetts is the geologic, cultural and spiritual center of North America; giving local action a global context. Peter reminds us of our duties as gaian terraist empathizers to be good, as ‘we are the world’.
Completing the Trees of Peace Wheel in scale Buddhist dharma centers nested in the hills of Western Massachusetts give this wheel shape and context from: hub, to spoke, to wheel itself. Virtually every sect of Buddhism today has found center, clustered around the center of the North American Plate, holding space for the Trees of Peace to do what they do best.... GROW.
