If you’ve been longing to enter into Jewish practice and learning in a more fully embodied way, this class is for you. We’ll begin each session opening the body as a vessel for prayer and learning. Each session will include an embodied exploration of one or two prayers from the traditional Jewish morning liturgy. We’ll then creatively engage with a piece of the week’s Torah or haftara reading. Our tools for the journey: breath, movement, body awareness, drawing, written and spoken words. Our hoped-for destination: the beginning or deepening of a meaningful, doable spiritual practice, sourced in both the riches of Jewish tradition and the richness of our inner lives. The only prerequisites are a curious mind, an open heart, and a willingness to move (in your own time and way). This program is designed for those who can attend all four sessions.
