February 28 - intro
May 9 - conclusion
The Community of Living Traditions at Stony Point Center is pleased to host a new series exploring spirituality in several Native American traditions. Speakers from the Mi'kmaq, Matinecock, Mohican, Mohawk, and Cherokee traditions will offer insights into what it means to live a spiritual life, walking in balance on the earth, trusting in natural processes, seeing beyond appearances, and loving all life as equal.
All are welcome to join us for any or all of our sessions, at
Stony Point Center
17 Cricketown Road, Stony Point, NY
Presentations will start at 7:15 PM on alternate Wednesdays from February 28th through May 9th.
We anticipate costs above the amount of the grant, and rely on participants to support these sessions with their generous gifts.
Dinner is available in the Dining Room from 6 - 7 PM for $15.
We are honored to have these Native Americans lead us in this next step of CLT’s journey to greater awareness and understanding of the First Peoples of this land. An early step on this journey was being able to host an overnight of the Two-Row Wampum Renewal Campaign in 2013; this has been followed more recently with last year’s "Course on First Peoples", led by our friend and Director of the Center for Algonquin Culture, Evan Pritchard. Then, in the fall of 2017, we unveiled an outdoor display of Evan's map, "Here Before Us", showing Native American settlements in this area before contact with Europeans.
For 2018, a grant from the Fellowship of Prayer is helping to make it possible for us to present "On Eagles' Wings: Discussions on Living a Spiritual Life", led by Native American elders. Once again, Evan Pritchard will host this series.
