Village View – Week of March 7
Thursday, March 11 | 7:00 PM EDT
This week’s class will be led by Yaqin on the theme of zikr. Zikr means remembrance. Remembrance of what?
Remembering what is really important in our lives. There are many important things in our lives, but which of these is more important? If you allow room in your house for sorrow, laziness, and deceit, these qualities will eventually take over your life, making it difficult to find space for joy, happiness and bliss.
All are welcome to join in exploration this sacred practice!

The Abode is a retreat and spiritual center situated in an 19th century Shaker Village on Mount Lebanon, NY. Each year, the Abode welcomes visitors to its historic campus for contemplative and rejuvenating activities.
The Abode service team is a group of dedicated people helping to tend a facility and land that have been considered sacred since the land’s earliest known stewards, the Mahicans. The Abode’s spiritual and service focus is the basis for offering sacred hospitality to all who cross our threshold.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Abode has been closed to guests, and has been working on a rejuvenation of its campus structures and facilities.
As 2021 arrives, and we plan for a Spring opening, we are seeking to recruit experienced maintenance and facilities folks to help us undertake day-to-day care and upkeep and to facilitate upgrades. If you are looking to apply your skills and experience to preserving and rehabilitating something worthwhile, and to belong to a service-oriented team, please see the position descriptions below and connect with us!
