Abode Village View – Week of 6/11

Abode Village View – Week of 6/11

One breathes the air of heaven, another goes through the fire of hell; yet both walk on the same earth, both live under the same sun.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan

Upcoming Week’s Events at the Abode

Monday, June 11
– 2:30pm Culture, Ecology and Regenerative Design with Kevin & Shakur – Razzaq Dining Hall
“This is a series involving discussion/presentation, activities, core routines of nature observation, and hands on projects. We’ll focus on eco-literacy, spending time within the thriving ecosystem of the Abode. We’ll observe the patterns of sunlight, water, soil, trees, plants, and mammals on the land and experience the ways they interact, affect, serve, benefit and adjust to each other. We’ll learn and witness some of the evidence of the history of the land and the human communities that have lived here. Then we’ll take a good look at the state of the world. And by using the tools of movements like Permaculture, Regenerative Design, and Culture Repair we’ll look at ways humans can move towards a healthy way of being part of the ecosystem.”
