Abode Village View – Week of 10/1

Abode Village View – Week of 10/1

When the stream of love flows in its full strength, it purifies all that stands in its way, as the Ganges, according to the teaching of the ancients, purifies all those who plunge into its sacred waters.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan

Regenerative Seeds: For an Eco-Culture

What is Human’s place in nature? How do we heal the ruptured relationship between humans and nature. This program will be part informative, part experiential, and partly an open lab of ideas and experiments.

Building eco-literacy, and practicing Core Routines of nature observation together, we’ll begin an ongoing journey for the individual and as a community. Then, through field trips and presentations and discussions we’ll look at some of the grassroots movements that are creating solutions, such as Permaculture, Regenerative Design and Culture Repair. Then we’ll look to practice our new Design tools as a group, and implement some of them here at the Abode.

$10 to $20 suggested donation per day. Fridays through November 23. We’ll be meeting in the family room in Fattah at 9:30 am. Feel free to email with any further questions: kevin_bose@hotmail.com

Hope to see you,

Upcoming Programs

Bringing Spirituality into Everyday Life with Himayat Inayati | October 5-7 | Pir Vilayat invoked a beautiful world filled with beautiful people and often underscored that the dervish brings to the world a living God – bringing Reality right into the marketplace! Today’s world is brimming with clouds all around us and naturally within us as well. The challenge that Pir Vilayat offers is to unleash that Great Spirit found at the depth of our soul in a manner that illuminates us and is shared with the world around us. This three-day retreat will revisit, celebrate, and apply the teaching of Pir Vilayat – addressing the needs of the young adult entering the world, the mature adult moving through this world, and the older adult making use of the space that is now offered within their life. For more information, visit theabode.org/programs/562


New Years Eve Retreat with Aziza Scott and Yaqin Aubert  December 28-31Begin the New Year with a sacred journey under Aziza Scott’s gentle guidance. This time will offer an opportunity to cleanse the heart and mind; to hearken to the call of the soul; to experience the peace that comes from turning within; to return to the struggles and joys of life with energy and a broader perspective. Aziza establishes an atmosphere of sacredness and emotional safety that is healing and energizing. Her humor and common sense provide a grounded approach to spirituality that helps in personal problem solving, inner realization and spiritual growth. Yaqin Aubert will lead the early morning and evening sessions, and will welcome retreatants on Thursday evening. Registration will be up soon!
