The Invitation of Shabbat Mind

Thursday, August 29, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM <Add to Calendar>

The Jewish mystical tradition teaches that we can cultivate an inner experience of Shabbat even during the week. In our current lives, we are constantly flooded by a barrage of inputs and demands that vie for our attention and emotional resources. The ability to rest deeply in this moment, no matter how hectic and overwhelming it may be, is a much needed antidote to the challenge of living in the modern world.

This Meditation Workshop is $18, taught by Rebecca Minkus-Lieberman from Orot: Center for New Jewish Learning and we will explore the Jewish mindfulness practice of Shabbat to support our ability to carve out an inner sanctuary in the midst of our crazy lives.
