Join Rabbi Jeff Roth in observing this most sacred of Jewish days, Yom Kippur. We will spend the day in liturgy, chant, Torah study and meditation. The psycho-spiritual processes developed for this observance of Yom Kippur will guide you into the deeply personal inner places that need to be accessed for transformation. These processes help you to internalize the work that the liturgy of Yom Kippur points to. Sacred discussions bring powerful group energy to support your inner work. The day’s observance takes us to an experience of entering the Holy of Holies where we can each reconnect to the Divine flow of the Universe.
Throughout the intensive we encourage you to practice silence in your home environment and to disconnect from the e-mail and news programs. If you are living with others you might want to try having only one meal per day with your housemates maintaining silence at other times. There will also be times for questions and answers as well as individual conferences with the teachers. The retreat includes a celebration of Shabbat. On the final Sunday we will have a chance to hear of each other’s experience as the retreat comes to a close in time to have a meal before Yom Kippur.
The cost of the retreat is $54.00. The teachings are presented without fees to support the teaching staff. Participants will be asked to make a voluntary contribution to support the teachers.
Some financial aid is available. Requests for financial aid should be made to Brian Arnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brian will also be happy to answers any questions you may have.
