Join Kavana's Spirituality team of yoga instructors, writing and meditation teachers, and musicians in a 4-week online program to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for a transformative High Holiday season.  The month of Elul is a time for reflection, repair, and return.  Oftentimes, we wait until the High Holidays themselves to begin doing the work and find that we wish we had more time to really sink into and clarify our intentions.  Make some time, guided and amongst community, to lean into what it means to you this year to return to your heart, to your highest self, to a life of meaning, to a world of justice, and to your most potent vitality.

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.
