The Abode of the Message is an intentional living community, born from a common commitment to broad spiritual values and the larger purpose of a common greater good for all humanity . The Abode hosts and manages many centers such as the two retreat centers of the Abode main campus, the Mountain Retreat Center, the headquarters of the Sufi Order International, Flying Deer Nature Center, Seven Pillars House of Wisdom, Suluk Academy and an organic farm. All of this is found on about 400 acres of beautiful land that was formerly the Mount Lebanon South Family Shaker Village. Many of the original buildings are still intact. Although there are many organizations here, the one word we hear over and over when groups and individuals come to visit and stay at The Abode is “peaceful”. It is what brings people back here year after year. Please browse our website for upcoming events and other ways to come and visit…Learn more about the Abode.
