Village View – Week of August 1
Farming of the Heart: Bridging Nature & Spirit
Sunday, August 8 | 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM ET
Using practices of farming as a deeply integrated metaphor for all we plan, sow, and harvest in our lives, this workshop will offer a relaxed time to envision how we can each work with and support the earth to make it a better place for ourselves, our loved ones, and future generations.
Through the context of Ziraat, a nature- and farming-based concentration practiced internationally, we will work with the elements of earth, air, fire, and water to bring us closer to the natural energies in the “gardens” we plant in the soil as well as in our hearts and minds.
This workshop will be of interest to those who farm, garden, parent, teach, or create in any way who wish to soulfully connect with nature. All are welcome.
- Nature Meditations
- Centering Walks

Inayatiyya Labor Day Retreat: Together Again
September 5, 2021
Labor Day Retreat Moving Online:
Due to the Delta variant, and the uncertainty this creates for people, the Inayatiyya will wait until 2022 to gather at the Abode again, inshallah.
Instead, they are moving our annual Labor Day Retreat to a one-day online program to be held Sunday, September 5, 2021.
If you registered for the Labor Day Retreat scheduled for the Abode September 2-6, 2021, the Inayatiyya will refund your money right away. If you would like to join us virtually that Sunday, details will be made available very soon.
