From the Mind and Heart of an American Indian Mystic:
An Afternoon with Mr. Joseph Rael
Sunday, April 7, 2013
Joseph Rael, whose name Tslew-teh-koyeh, given to him as a child at Picuris Pueblo, means “Beautiful Painted Arrow,” is widely regarded as one of the great Native American holy men of our time. Born on the Southern Ute reservation and raised in Picuris, New Mexico, where his visionary powers and curing skills were developed.
In 1983, Mr. Rael had a vision and built a Sound Peace chamber, a oval shaped structure where people of all races might gather to chant and sing for world peace and to purify the earth and oceans. At present, Sound Peace chambers have been built around the globe. Throughout the world on the 7th of each month, sacred fires are lit at these Peace Chambers to continue the necessary prayer for world peace. Ghost Ranch is honored to have Mr. Rael light its sacred fire in ceremony after his teaching.
Mr. Rael is also an author and artist. His paintings, like his ceremonies and teachings, are based on his visions. They have been called “portal” art, as they open a doorway into alternate dimensions of reality. His art is on display in the Winter Invitational Show at Ghost Ranch’s Florence Hawley Ellis Museum.
