Local Hungarian shaman sings Piermont sister village’s myth
NYACK, NY – On the evening of Thursday, March 14, local Hungarian shaman Ivan Szendro shared his personal legend with an intimate group of locals seeking strength, growth, and insight through song and film. Ivan also launched the first upward-reading book, “Journey to the Up-Conscious,” where lines are read from bottom to top to generate an uplifting feeling of ascension.
“On that bridge 43 years ago, something told me to wait, to not spoil the moment. I don’t want to mystify what happened to me because everybody has a personal mythology and a personal legend. We are acting and choosing our decisions according to our own legends,” he said.
As a follow-up, on Tuesday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m., the Village of Piermont is getting a special show of gratitude for the village’s solidarity with the ruined Hungarian sister village of Nagygec. The Hungarian Cultural Attaché of New York, Anita Demeter, will speak at Piermont Village Hall, (478 Piermont Avenue, Piermont, NY 10968, 845-359-1258).
