Verily, the power of the word can move mountains.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan


Dear Friends,


The Abode is awake and ready for programs after a tremendous March Village Visit and Abode Work Day! Thanks to all who came and contributed, and a warm welcome to our new friends and members of the Khidmat Program!

Sincere thanks, as well, to all who attended the Abode Town Hall last week in person and online. It was an energetic gathering with many great updates, contributions, and discussions. The enthusiasm and feedback for the Abode Ambassadors program was especially appreciated! We look forward to sharing video of the Town Hall later this week.

The Unity of Religious Ideals Week is approaching (April 10th – 16th) and we hope to be with you to celebrate and honor many traditions and the underlying unity between them.

Following shortly after is The Sacred Art of Storytelling with M’Ellen Kennedy —  exploring differences between oral and written culture, the human propensity for stories (grounded in current scientific research), the role of stories in religious traditions, and fundamentals of engaging storytelling.
