Event description

Description

Some of us affirm our identity with the place our parents or grandparents lived. Or we may identify more with an era, as part of “a generation,” that holds more meaning than a place. For some, our ‘identity’ is in our search for a place to call home. E.T. Hall, who grew up in the area where the seminar is held, considered Time and Place the central coordinates of culture. Culture and identity are layered, and we meet at a place richly layered, and warmed by the natural geo-thermal hot springs just outside our door.

Join us to explore together the complex meanings of home and culture and identity for each of us in a place with thousands of years of very rich and complex history. We will meet on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 9, and in the evening walk over to the 14th Century site of Giusewa of the original Jemez Pueblo on the most beautiful night of the year in this historic site. On Tues, Dec. 12, we will be welcomed by friends at Jemez Pueblo for a traditional feast, and invited to the ritual matachines dance which express and challenge our discussions.

We meet in a beautiful geological transitional zone in northern New Mexico, where its volcanic history has given us a beautiful, sheltered environment with soothing natural hot springs just steps from our rooms, In the modest setting of the Bodhi Manda Zen Center (http://www.bmzc.org/), where most nights the Milky Way arcs overhead, and where each day we may find new perspectives.

Maximum number of participants - 20.

What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?

The closest airport is Albuquerque. Jemez Springs is about 75 minutes drive from the airport. It is best to fly in on Saturday morning and drive to the Bodhi Manda Zen Center. Participants usually rent cars and the event coordinator helps in organizing ride sharing.
