Community Building

Our founder, Edwin Sasek, envisioned a contemplative community where we could learn and grow with one another. We have a new online Facebook group, Abode Contemplative Community. We have a 9 month course starting in September 2017- May 2018 where we will be exploring the values of Abode in relationship with the work we offer.

Education

We're partnering with the SOL Center to offer low cost, six hour end of life planning certification program. Designees from faith communities around San Antonio are encouraged to attend so they may share the information with their own churches, synogogues, mosques.  

Dr. Atkins teaches about the Signposts of Dying - the behaviors, language, and experiences  people who are dying often experience in the last months of life.

Research

2 million baby boomers will die in the 20 years. Spiritual communities will be called upon to offer care and support and we want to help by sharing researched best practices founded in contemplative care.
