“The Sun Will Shine Again”: A Covid 19 Musical Meditation

A musical meditation to address the isolation of COVID-19. Remember to breathe and stay in the moment if you can, as I am sending all my light out to you in hope and healing. 
Psalm 142:8 says Hotziah mi-masger nafshi l’hodot et shemekha. Bring my soul out of prison that I may give thanks to your name.

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
