Group Breath-work Session with Ambrose Gage: Heal the Man

  • Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”? In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.

Talk with Pat Salmon: Institutionalized on Staten Island

Join us for a talk by Staten Island historian Pat Salmon. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Staten Island was viewed as a healing environment for the ill and those who could not care for themselves. But there was also a darker side. Off-island residents sometimes saw the island as a distant location for those with contagious diseases or for those viewed as outcasts. For these and other reasons the Quarantine station, seaman's retreat, "Old Ladies' Home", Richmond county Almshouse (later the Farm Colony), Nursery and Children's Hospital, Sea View Hospital and others were established to house those "who required separation".
