A Six-Day Jewish Meditation Retreat

Online with Zoom
August 23rd – 28th, 2021
We have all been moving through this pandemic period adjusting to new ways of living and interacting. As we transition to the next phase it will be helpful to keep our heart/minds awake, attentive and as open as possible. A period of intensive contemplative practice can help us harvest what has been learned over the past 18 months. Coming just two weeks before the Jewish New Year, it is a good period for reflection and for working with heart opening practices, which will include the sound of the shofar each morning.
A Jewish meditation practice can give you the tools you need to open up your heart/mind – bringing wisdom, and cultivating the qualities of compassion and kindness to this preparation period and to each moment as it is now, and with what will come. Learning to pay sustained loving attention to your own experience, and the feelings arising in the present moment is the key.
