A Single Spark

In the darkness
Complete and unadorned
A single spark
Leapt into existence

Life and being
Were born in that moment
As Divine Creation
Entered the universe
Wrapped in a cloak
Of mystery and questions
She began Her descent
With purpose and direction
Carrying the promise
Of Ruakh and Neshamah
She blazes a pathway
For Her children to follow
Her name is Shekhinah
And She brings renewal
As Her cloak falls away
Our souls can find light

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
