Coming Home: Spiritual Preparation for the High Holy Days
We are never ready…and it’s always the right time.
Each and every year, the High Holy Days arrive without fail, reminding us that no matter what’s going on in the world, returning to center is possible. This year, many of us need the annual retreat into ourselves and with community more than ever.
The month of Elul, which precedes Rosh Hashanah, promises nothing less than transformation. Whether or not you attend synagogue services, whether you find the sermons powerful or music uplifting, ultimately the depth of meaning you experience at this season depends, in large part, on the personal work you do during this time. Each of us needs to do our own spiritual work.
Coming Home: Spiritual Preparation for the High Holy Days is a 4-session course that provides a map for this journey. You’ll learn how traditional Jewish themes and metaphors fit together. Each session includes core stories from Jewish tradition that illuminate the path plus mindfulness practices to deepen your experience and discussion. We’ll draw insights from ancient texts as well as modern poetry and song.
Everyone is welcome! The community we create together will be one of compassion, listening, and openness.
