The holiday season is one of the most beautiful times of the year at ABODE. Please join us at our home, 5-7 p.m., 8619 Post Oak Lane, Sunday, Dec. 13, for this special year-end drive-through celebration featuring the Conroy Christmas Carolers along with Mexican hot chocolate, cider, wines from Judy Tierney of Scout & Cellar and plenty of holiday treats.
We invite you to honor your loved ones with luminarias, too. They’re $25 apiece and will feature your loved ones’ names. Details here.
Holiday Luminarias is 5-7 pm, Sunday, Dec. 13.
An ABODE tradition! Our meditation format includes a brief reading chosen by the week’s facilitator to prepare us for 30 minutes of silent meditation. It could be a poem, a Scripture from any tradition or a reflection on a topic that opens us to deeper contemplation of awareness and love. After meditation, we follow with a conversation based on the reading or meditation. RSVP by sending an email to Edwin Sasek.
Monday Meditation is 5-6 pm, Mondays, hosted on Zoom.
We’ll be reading the book that helped influence ABODE’s beginnings: Being with Dying by Joan Halifax. The group meets 6:30-7:30 p.m. via Zoom, the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, starting Jan. 12.
Our six-week program is set for 6:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 14 and meets each Thursday through Feb. 18. Topics include talking about death, planning your own funeral – and helping your loved ones do the same, Advance Directives, wills, alternatives to burials, green burials and the benefits of partnering with a death doula. More details to come!
We’ve had a wonderful first session of Life After Loss. Several of us in the ABODE Community recently met each Thursday for six weeks to understand the process of grief and how to live through it in a healing way. Many thanks to CHRISTUS VNA Hospice for partnering with us on this special program.
We plan to launch another session in January 2021.
