Embodied Jewish Experience (Spring 2021)

Monday, June 7, 2021 thru Monday, June 21, 2021
5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
See session list below for specific session times and locations.
Online CA

In these three sessions, we will explore the lived experience of Jewish life. While we often think of Judaism as a mentally oriented, text-based religion, in truth, its power also comes from the ways in which Judaism embodies the fulfillment of basic human needs. We will deepen our understanding of four basic aspects of Jewish life and bring them to life with an embodied approach. Each week we will learn more about the power of embodied practice to bring our spiritual life alive and to become more grounded in ways to express our culture and our faith.


1st Session

Judaism and Wellness/ Kendra Fried

How can the ancient wisdom of Torah inform our modern-day health practices? We will explore and embody simple yet profound ways in which we can enhance our physical and spiritual vitality. Just one new daily practice can change the trajectory of your health for the better!


2nd Session

The Ritual of Rest/Marilyn Paul

The rituals and practices of Shabbat give us a way to live in rhythm. We go and then we stop. Our world is full of instructions and mindsets on how to go and keep going. Shabbat teachings are full of practices and mindsets for how to stop and keep stopping in a regular, fully embodied way. We will look at these teaching through the lens of body, mind and spirit that can help us rest more deeply so that we can live more fully.


3rd Session

Earth Body, Human Body, Jewish way into Nature Connection/ Rabbi Zelig Golden

Judaism is an ancient earth-based tradition. Torah teaches us to remember that we are the earth. In this session, Join Rabbi Zelig Golden to learn foundational teachings from the sages and ancient practices to connect with the earth as a means to more deeply connect with ourselves.
