Nov. 15, Thurs,7pm: Four Goals of Algonquin Spirituality: Wisdom Power Knowledge Compassion. Evan Pritchard explores the practical spirituality of our local Native Americans. At Sacred Space, 436 Main St, Beacon NY 12508. $20. Do not arrive before 6:50 pm. Evan.pritchard7 @gmail.com, 845-377-1110.  Donna 845-742-8494 sacredspace77@gmail.com
This workshop explores each of these four goals, and how they relate to the Red Road teachings, as well as to the four directions of the Medicine Wheel. Through inner journeying we visualize ourselves growing through three stages of unfoldment towards each of these goals until they become real to us. We go from choosing a direction of the medicine wheel, choosing an action to change our conscious-ness, and choosing a quality we wish to cultivate. This quality then leads us to cultivate one of these goals, important resources for moving forward in our daily lives. From there we explore three more stages, realizing outcomes, applying them as a livelihood, and attaining to transcendent virtues of Neoline or enlightenment. This totals seven stages, completing a cycle. The way these four goals inter-relate is complex but putting these teachings into action is simple; all it takes is faith in the process. Participants should bring paper and pen. Be prepared to acquire new resources for organizing your spiritual life, according to ancient traditions.

Nov. 24, Sat, 2-5pm: Giving Thanks Through Action: A Native American Call to Service. A workshop with Evan Pritchard, Neolyth, 39 Glen Ridge Ave, Montclair, NJ, $25 RSVP.  In this workshop, Mi’kmaq author Evan (Chipmunk) Pritchard, discusses ways we can show our gratitude for all that Mother Earth and Father Sky have given us, through our actions. When we offer to help Creation continue, we offer our whole selves, wholeheartedly, and with real humility. It may start with words such as “thank you for all you have given me,” but these words lead to “show me how I can help,” or “show me where to begin.” From there the spirit of thanks-giving leads us to a path of action of some kind, where there are no words needed. Evan will also teach us Native American sign language, a first step for learning to pray without words, using John Mohawk's highly accessible "Giving of Thanks" as a signing project. We will learn the spoken words for thank you in many native languages and many ways to show gratitude without words.
