Elohai Neshama: Thanking G-d for Our Souls in Pandemic Time

elohai neshama

my g-d of soul
blessed are
for leaving traces
of our souls
as our bodies fall 
and all that remains is the sea of our tears
thank you for reminding us
of the hidden breath 
the raspy rapt blessing bound up inside us each day
that we are alive 
when the world
when we least expect to be
we are

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
