May 25th: Pachamama is Asking us to Listen

May 25th: Pachamama is Asking us to Listen! Katonah Green is hosting a special event this Sunday from 3-7pm. Click here to register!

We will host 2 “earth wisdom keepers” as they travel from Peru up the East Coast, for a special gathering on Sunday, May 25th in northern Westchester.

Ayni is Quechua (Peruvian tribal language) word meaning reciprocity. The goal is to work toward the emergence of a new social ethos that embodies global consciousness in both ecology and economy.

Sebastian Pauccar Flores is a traditional Pampamisayoq, a Q’ero healer and ceremonialist, “servant” of Pachamama and the Apus. Now, with author/integrative medicine doctor Dr. JE Williams, he’s getting the word out. Together, they will share stories and wisdom of heart-centered spirituality. They will discuss Peru — as a biological Noah’s Arc; Macchu Picchu — eco-spiritual icon of our times; and the concept of Ayni — a model for a sustainability ethic of universal responsibility and reciprocity.

The event will begin at 3pm on Sunday. Join us for the afternoon, and if possible stay for a potluck supper. Or, for a very special experience, stay overnight in yurts in a beautiful outdoor setting in Northern Westchester.

The Costs of War, Violence and Denial: An Omega Retreat for Veterans Living with PTSD

| by Staff

Many of us live with the after effects of war, known as post-traumatic stress. Symptoms can include explosive anger, depression, and flashbacks. The attempts of traditional counseling and therapy, although valuable, often leave our moral and spiritual wounds unaddressed. Without doing the work of healing spiritually, we only address symptoms, and this often does not support a change in our hearts and minds.

AS SHE IS: A New Film Project from Megan McFeely

Megan McFeely is launching a film project called AS SHE IS about a personal and collective journey towards wholeness…to reclaim, value and live the feminine aspect of ourselves. What does this mean? Our culture is fast and loud and it seems we have forgotten the importance of listening and to value the qualities of compassion, gratitude and generosity which are feminine capacities –things that come from the inner aspect of life– which provide connection, sustenance and meaning.

Visiting Chuang Yen Monastery in Carmel, NY

| by Reviewer

The name of the Monastery “Chuang Yen”, means “Majestically Adorned”. The “Adornment” refers to the adornment of the Buddha’s teachings. Traditionally, Buddhist Monasteries not only served as a focus for religious services and festivals, they were also community centers of learning and activities — both religious and secular. Carrying on that tradition, Chuang Yen Monastery extends an invitation to the public to view the religious services and festivals held here, and be the place to cultivate awareness to develop wisdom.
