7/5/2012 1:03:00 PM
The Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park is situated in the breathtaking red rocks of Sedona. It rests on 14 pristine acres in the heart of Sedona at the base of Thunder Mountain, deemed holy by native peoples. Every day dozens of visitors -- spiritual seekers, families, people on quests and pilgrimages, the curious, residents who love to come often - visit the Amitabha Stupa. Its future is uncertain, however, and the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park is at a critical juncture - it must be mortgage free and the land owned outright, thus ensuring that the Amitabha Stupa remain in the world and be fully accessible to all who wish to visit.
The Sedona Performing Arts Alliance and it’s members have committed to assisting in the efforts to save the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park with a new compilation CD and benefit concert. The “Stand for Peace” project is being Spearheaded by local artist Tara Middleton (Adalia Tara).

Artists: Scott Beck, Amitabha Band, Adalia Tara, Scott Simon, Jake Payne, Decker, Eric Miller, Ralf Illenberger, Cindy Dickenson, Anthony Mazzella, Cara Marie, Shastina, Chris Spheeris and Redland. Additional donors include: Eddy Baratinni - Production and Jane Perinin - Cover Art. All proceed’s from the sale of the “Stand for Peace” Benefit Compilation will go directly to the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park. “Stand for Peace” will be available for $15 at Studio Live with a special price of $10 at the June 8 Benefit Concert.
“Stand for Peace” will be officially released on July 8 at the Benefit Concert being held in The Backyard at Studio Live.

Since its completion in 2004, the Amitabha Stupa has become an important place for contemplation and prayer for residents, as well as a significant destination for tourists. It is estimated that over 100,000 visits to the Stupa and Peace Park have occurred since its completion in 2004.
The stupas are considered to be powerful peace monuments and are one of the oldest forms of sacred architecture on the earth, dating back 2,600 years.
