“From the depths I call to you!” — Psalm 130
In the busyness of our lives, how often do we set aside time to explore our own depths? To listen to our souls? With a taste of four soulwork modalities based on a Gestalt approach – dreamwork, inner child work, nature soulwork, and Soul Collage© – we will take the time for that introspection. Each week, we will explore one modality. You will delve into your own inner world and share your insights in soulwork chevruta dyads and in the group meetings. Our inquiry will be framed in a Jewish-spiritual context, with a short text study at the start of each meeting.
All sessions will be recorded and sent to participants. We encourage live attendance for you to get the most out of the experience.
