I’d be, this very minute, in Vernon, B.C. – and – consider myself home for the holidays, being with my Kebzeh family.
New Horizons' Beloved Mentor
Murat is the man who has brought a simple group of dedicated students, from around the world, together to become a model of healthy family/community living, even when we are thousands of miles apart.
Murat has brought us together and taught us, just a bit, of what “awe” can be like when people build community/family and learn to live just this side of unity – and -- love.
In honor of Murat’s birthday, a few days belated, please do take a moment, as the holiday season begins to unfold (or sometime early next year) to find out why we are telling you this.
Discover Murat’s newest book, Ahmsta Kebzeh: The Science of Universal Awe, Volume II.
This precious book, built on community/family devotion and perseverance, includes the how and the why of New Horizons’ choosing this dearest man to be our community development mentor.
Makes a nice Christmas gift for someone special, too!
You can order your copy here.
Even if this Christmas wish of mine seems a bit much, along with all the other holiday “to do” stuff, sometime soon, at least, check out the article contribution Sue and I made to this book that came out several months ago.
Murat’s mentorship and the ancient community traditions and teachings of his native Akbkhazia were added to Sue’s Quakerism, her almost countless years as Quaker camp counselor and, eventually, Camp Director, my tikkun olam and clinical treatment and therapeutic community background to become the key elements of the “new” New Horizons Small “Zones of Peace” Project. Circa 1999 – 2006.
Follow our lead and, then, imagine yourself becoming an example of the “possible human” leading the way to the “possible society,” once you check out all we are and have for you!
Make room in your life for our huge package of community healing potions; let us become an integral part of your new year’s hope for a “best” possible society in motion.
On this blog site, alone, if you search, you will find more guidelines than you could ever hope to access of how to proceed in that direction.
You could stuff many a stocking with hopes and dreams, helpful hints and tools for a better tomorrow, if you look around here on this site.
The fine print, however, is that most of what we have is interactional.
You will have to provide the people! That’s where family, friends and community come in.
Still stuck for giving New Horizons’ Small “Zones of Peace” Project as a gift?
Contact me, Anastasia, personally, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m here for hire as your personal Santa, with elves, to help you make an “awesome” year ahead , just for the asking.
Wishing you a joyous holiday season!
With gratitude for your continued support
From New Horizons' Board of Directors
