Upcoming Programs

 

Tuesday Teachings: An Evening with Sachem HawkStorm, Hereditary Chief of the Schaghticoke First Nations | Tuesday | July 23 | 7:00 PM | Join us in welcoming Sachem HawkStorm for a talk on Indigenous Peoples Cultural Appropriation, How to Be a Good Ally, and Addressing the Climate Change Crisis. Sachem HawkStorm is the chief of the Schaghticoke First Nations and a direct descendant of the great Wampanoag Chief Wasanegin Massasoit. Schaghticoke First Nations is one of three nations of the Schaghticoke Tribe, with 370 members, and also a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The word “Schaghticoke” means “the Mingling of Waters,” and signifies the merging of what remained of the Algonquin Nations in the Eastern Woodlands in 1676. Like so many of his people, Sachem HawkStorm was taken from his parents and raised in a family unfamiliar with his heritage. Emancipated at 15, his life’s journey has been one of reclamation, re-indigenization, and reconnection to the land. Sachem HawkStorm is in the formative stages trying to purchase back a piece of their vast ancestral lands for a Conservation and Cultural Center in the Hudson Valley. He works in close partnership with the United Confederation of Taino People, the Ramapough Lenape Tribal Nation, and the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe to strengthen unity amongst North Eastern Native Peoples. Sachem HawkStorm has played an active role in the implementation of the United Nations Rights Of Indigenous Peoples since 2012 and most recently has become affiliated with the International Indian Treaty Council. All donations will go to the Schaghticoke First Nations.

 

Community, Nature, Design with Kevin Bose | Saturdays | July 27, August 17 | 10:00 AM-4:00 PM | Community Nature Design: Creating an Eco-Culture and a New Sense of Progress consists of four Saturday classes. First we will strengthen our relationship to the birds, trees, plants, and animals through observation, activities, and routines. Then we will use tools of grassroots movements such as Permaculture, Regenerative Design, and Culture Repair to design for human needs and, at the same time, create abundance in the ecosystem. For more information email Kevin: [email protected] or visit www.theabode.org/programs./678 to register.

Sacred Arts Retreat Weekend: Thresholds of Becoming with Naima Brown and Taj a Nur Grant | August 10-11 | Led by Naima Khabira Brown and Taj a Nur Grant, this weekend retreat offers the opportunity to deepen your connection to inner guidance through the medium of creative art, amidst the beauty and inspiration of nature, and the warmth of joyful friendship. We will balance meditation practices with walks, meals, music, and sharing our creative processes.  Using the form of a threshold, with doors opening to a space of possibility, Taj a Nur and Naima will share a method for everyone to explore through art visionary states of being, meditative guidance, and opening to grace and the unexpected gifts of creativity. It’s not necessary to be an artist to participate. As the Sufi teacher Hazrat Inayat Khan so beautifully said, “Art (arts) is a way of meditation, and guidance, where you are and where you are going.” In this workshop we will explore his idea.

Alone with the Alone: A Silent Retreat with Pir Zia | August 30-September 2 | Amidst the late-summer quietude of Mt. Lebanon, Pir Zia will return to the Abode to lead our historic and much loved Inayati Labor Day Retreat. We will be together, yet in silence, for three days transitioning from the end of summer back into the busy life of fall.
