Inscribing Ourselves into the Book of Life

two trees with beams of sunlight between

Elul, the month leading up to the High Holidays, is the time to write the first sentence in our personal Book of Life. This is an empowering time to take control of our narratives and decide who, and how, we want to be this year. We open our hearts through deep reflection and introspection. We take stock, ask for forgiveness, offer forgiveness, and try to heal our relationships with ourselves, with others and with the Divine. This Elul, Ritualwell will offer a series of weekly teachings to support your process of transformation in preparation for the High Holidays. Learn, explore and connect with your deeper self through Jewish learning and prompts for reflection and action.

A new teaching will be posted below on August 13, 20, and 27 and on September 3 and 10. Want to receive the weekly teaching directly in your inbox? We’ll send you the Ritualwell newsletter rich with resources. Subscribe here.
