When: Sunday evenings during Elul from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (Pacific Time)
Dates: August 23, August 30, September 6, and September 13
With whom: Stacy Lawson, Nicki Sadow-Hasenberg, Traci Marx, Jane Seibel, and Laurie Reed
Each 90-minute session will include meditation, yoga, singing, discussion, reading, and a creative expression including writing, drawing, painting, and/or the use of our imaginations. In our first meetings, we will look at traditional Teshuva (“Returning”), to explore and make realistic commitments to ourselves, and then work on the question of forgiveness. Two of the hardest things in this process are to admit to wrongdoing and offering and accepting forgiveness.
We recommend reading Alan Lew's book, “This is Real, and You are Completely Unprepared,” for Jewish context and spiritual inspiration, however, it is not a requirement or pre-requisite for this course. We hope you will be able to join us for the entire series.
We look forward to moving into the Fall and the Jewish New Year, together, with a deeper sense of connection, clarity, and purpose.
